The bad bout of flu threw me off balance. It got me thinking about a depressed state of mind and the help that’s available. The world around us has lots to offer. So do the people around us. It’s pretty typical though to suffer flu in the winter and the world can seem a very dismal place then. Important: the whole world isn’t in winter
This morning I enjoyed the beauty of this stunning dragonfly photographed by Steve Gingold who blogs at Stephen Gingold Nature Photography Blog
It’s usually the line-patterns on dragonfly wings that amaze me but this photo is different. The wings have a beautiful mother-of-pearl sheen with lovely light patterns. At the same time I can still see through the wings to the attractive grass below.
Tanja visited about 40 minutes prior to me and her comment perfectly sums up my own appreciation (I hope you don’t mind me sharing it here Tanja):
“The dragonfly has captured my heart. Its wings are things of utter beauty.”
Last night I finally got a post published again. For that I have Damien to thank. He didn’t know I was on a downer but still sent me the right words at the right time!
From our comment-chat [my formatting]..
Isn’t every day a therapy session? How can I be
how can I smile more,
Great questions. I know that when I log into WP and visit various blogs, enjoy the photos or art, read the words, converse via comments… that I’m enriched. That realisation really touched me and I feel grateful. This community offers so much beauty and encouragement for FREE.
Thank you to everyone who takes the time to share thoughts, words, poems, art, encouragement and appreciation on WP!
