2 Pieces Of Peace

photo taken July 2009 • title thanks to Wo

Well, this photo brought out the philosophers in you, and I loved reading all the entries.

Some profundities:
“Standing in the Light Seeing” ~ a Lakota way of thinking
Dog Days of Summer/ Fleeting Faster than We Know/ Take a Moment to Reflect ~ a haiku by D’Ann
“Love do not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outward in the same direction.” ~ from The Little Prince
Brother Sun, Sister Moon
Two impossible friends at birth,
now joined by fate and enjoy this earth.
All of us live under the same sky.

“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.” ~ Rabindranath Tagore

And for some comic relief:
“I told you the view from here would curl your tail”

• • • Who needs Calgon when you’ve got a photo like this.  Ahhhhhhhh.  I needed a deep breath like that, and a few more.

While I’m out re-balancing myself with the Farmily, please enter this week’s contest by leaving your title, caption, or commentarty for the photo above in the comment section of this post.

I have one more Halloween-themed prize: a black obsidian arrowhead, made by MC; some sun-bleached bones; and a small, perfectly intact skull with working jaw and everything!

    Chloe, pensively: I’m sure there’s someone out there having as much fun as we are.
    Charlie (eyes peeking beneath lidded Elvis eyes: Yeah, yeah, they’re out there somewhere. I’m sure of it.
    Chloe & Charlie ( looking at each other): NAH!!!! (both falling all over each other, howling with glee).

    “all grown up”

    There is something very Annie Leibovitz (I’m a fan) about this picture. The golden quality to the subjects. It is just a very majestic image. Amazing. We have been watching Chloe and Charlie grow from pups and this picture makes them seem very adult.

    A Vintage Vignette Suspended in Time.

    I have a vintage post card that is very similar to this picture in color and theme. A real ‘feel good’ picture.
