Kind of a Metaphor

While looking for a specific image today, I came across this one that I took on July 14th, 2014.

July usually marks the beginning of monsoon season in Tucson, which is something we all looked forward to seeing. The rains would come sometimes with a fury and relieve the sweltering summer heat. I always found it so exciting to see it happen so I practiced looking up at the sky every day.

On this particular day, as I looked up, I couldn’t help but notice the sheep and the dog. And I laughed because to me it looks like the sheep wasn’t about to succumb to being herded.

Kind of a metaphor for us humans, isn’t it?

Something to think about.


Be good to yourself and each other. Namaste’


Whychus Creek Bridge

Last Fall hubby and I moved from a large city of almost a million people to a town of only 2038. Well, make that 2040 now that we’re here. Both environments have their advantages and drawbacks, but I’ve learned that no matter where I live, I must bloom where I’m planted. My trusty cameras have helped me to do that.

My Mom always warned me about burning bridges. I hope I’ve listened well, Mom. Namaste’
