This shot came as a surprise, it was only after I had taken it that I noticed the remarkable resemblance between the three so, I’m posting this to gratify the day with a sparkle of humor 🙂

Plunge into the intimacy of the duck family

As we took a stroll today this amazing scenery unfolded before our eyes…
It seemed as if a magical cloud of feathers of softness had descended just
For our pleasure.
I obviously could not control my index from capturing these precious moments
But I am sure you would agree that I could not describe it better than
the verse I found by
http://soulgatherings.wordpress.com/2014/04/02/todays-quote-385/

“Around us, life bursts with miracles–
a glass of water, a ray of sunshine, a leaf,
a caterpillar, a flower, laughter, raindrops.
If you live in awareness,
it is easy to see miracles everywhere.
Each human being is a multiplicity of miracles.
Eyes that see thousands of colors, shapes, and forms;
ears that hear a bee flying or a thunderclap;
a brain that ponders a speck of dust as easily as the entire cosmos;
a heart that beats in rhythm with the heartbeat of all beings.
When we are tired and feel discouraged by life’s daily struggles,
we may not notice these miracles, but they are always there.”

Breaking The Spirit Of The Elephant


I hardly ever re-blog but this post shocked me so much by it’s violence and cruelty that I made an exception. It was to my eyes all the more offensive by the fact that children were spectators and sometimes participating.
The basics of education is to install love, pity, kindness and compassion for all living creature.
Feel free to bring awareness around you to this predicament.

News For Animal Welfare

When showing this video to a friend, her reply to me was “How can people do that to an elephant?” Well the reality is tourists do this to these elephants, maybe not physically, but through their desire to experience such a majestic creature up close. The people who train these animals are driven solely by the money the tourist brings. If tourists stop paying, then these practices will cease to exist. If this video stops just one person from funding this practice, then it has done it’s job.
