Love that photo. When I stare at it I become peaceful. I think because the leopard must have been at peace as well.

Oh Dean this is such a beautiful and insightful blog. It is so true. Just be your own unique self. Just live in this moment, this day. We never know what life bring tomorrow and in these difficult and uncertain times. We’ve just got to stay positive and know that all will be right again. My wish is that life will slowdowm and we will all live simpler lives. Stay safe.

Lovely reflections on life thru all that the leopard tail/tale might imagine!!!

Balance… is ….as the eye of the heart beholds it to be …. in any situation, moment in time, photo or desire….true balance comes from the heart’s perception ( and therefore reality for that one person) place and time. A wounded heart’s
perception of balance is quite different than the never wounded heart.

Beautiful reflection Dean. I particularly appreciate how you distinguished “balance” in this image as understood, and maybe only understood, in this present moment. When else could “balance,” or any other experience for that matter, be understood other than in this present moment. That you captured it is great good fortune for you and for us!

I really love the photograph, this is one of those ‘less is more’ moments and the blog was pretty special too. Thank you 🙂

I love this picture Dean, and even more how you refer to the tree as being selfless and that we can all be a tree.
