Deep and Dark


What you can see… sometimes.

Take your time. Live in the moment. Be present.

All ways of saying the same thing. Or, about the same thing.

For the past few days I’ve been busy. Very busy. But, I’ve taken an old Chinese proverb to heart. “Walk slower, go farther.” I’ve gotten more done in the past few days than I do during some weeks. I’ve had to slow down time. Time shift, as it were. I’ve also gotten ride of the notion of multi-tasking. I always make mistakes when I try to do that. I bet you do too.

That’s how I came upon this picture. Dogarito was taking her time in the shade. She’s smart. The longer we spent in the shade , then the cooler we would be during our walks. She’s even managed to cut the length of our walks down by at least 30%. That’s less exercise, but she isn’t coming home half dead and very thirsty.

Dogs are the perfect example. No. They don’t think cognitively. But, the know stuff.  They live in the moment. They are always present. Even in the bathroom while you are showering. Heh!

The picture. While were taking our time I looked down to see this little scene. By little, I mean teeny tiny. I wouldn’t have seen it if we were marching our way through our morning walk. It’s like a little secret garden. A secret garden that is all of about ten inches long. The photograph is bigger than the real live scene. The rest was easy. Press the button. Do the post production.
