stories from the wilderness of everyday life

Dance & Enjoy The Sun

We visited the Indianapolis Zoo a couple of weekends ago.  It was a gorgeous day - ample opportunity for laughs and learning for the kids and the adults, and of course, for photos. 

Taking photos leads to opportunities to view moments in ways differently than I might otherwise view them.

This "little" fellow was amazing.  He was standing with his eyes closed, swaying side-to-side.  He was dancing to his own music and we were allowed the privelege of watching.


And what of this guy?  Do you think "yuck" as you see him (as my daughter proclaimed) or perhaps think of what he might be experiencing - a blissful moment feeling the warmth on his face?

Perhaps we are fortunate to be human because we can re-member the true nature, simplicity, and beauty of life.

Or perhaps we are unfortunate because we can (and all too often, do) forget.
