I couldn’t resist this photo. It’s not award winning, but it spoke to me of gentleness and innocence–two qualities that seem in short supply in today’s world. It’s been a rough couple of weeks in the news department. These are times that make one question humanity, and sanity. But this sweet little dove, with its pale blue eye-ring, sitting amid a fairyland of tiny blue and orange and white wildflowers reminded me of faith and trust in the goodness that does exist.
I believe the more removed we are from nature, the worst our behavior becomes. We must re-establish our connection, respect it, and nurture it for the sake of our own well being, as well as that of the future.
