This photo makes me smile.
A creation by two of my lovely friends:
K. Murphy (model) and D. Hruska (photographer).
"They adjust, adapt, glide, accept. They are mighty in their malleability, almost to the point of a superhuman power. I grew up watching a mother who became with every new day whatever that day required of her. She produced gills when she needed gills, grew wings when the gills became obsolete, manifested ferocious speed when speed was required, and demonstrated epic patience in other more subtle circumstances."

The Paradox Of Our Age
We have bigger houses but smaller families;
more conveniences, but less time.
We have more degrees but less sense;
more knowledge but less judgment;
more experts, but more problems;
more medicines but less healthiness.
We’ve been all the way to the moon and back,
but have trouble in crossing the street to meet our new neighbor.
We built more computers to hold more copies than ever,
but have less real communication;
We have become long on quantity,
but short on quality.
These are times of fast foods but slow digestion;
Tall men but short characters;
Steep profits but shallow relationships.
It’s a time when there is much in the window but nothing in the room.
— the 14th Dalai Lama
I was talking with Maddie over the weekend after attending a friend's blessingway.* We were discussing how it can be difficult to be "different" in a world that values "sameness" and how to both fit in and still be your own individual self.* Blessingway link provided by A Little Each Day.
