Mighty shadow

Last Friday, I came across the mighty shadow of a fellow habitant of the trail I ride to get to work. From very close to this subject, in Wide-Angle mode, my phone took this picture, giving full justice to the majesty of the shadow and my friend.

Enjoy the NOW!

PS. I have slowed down my blogging here to almost a grinding halt, partly due to lack of focus and due to demise of my Macbook Pro - so, no laptop at home. As it is quite easy to post from my iPhone, I am on Instagram. If you want to follow me there, I am happy to share my Instagram ID with you. Please just ask. Thank you! I will come by here from time to time.

Hitchers 4 and 5

This baby butterfly rode on my back for at least half a mile.
And, this little one was perched on my bicycle carrier and then on the tire for a bit.

This morning I thought about 'my Hitchers' a bit and said to myself, "I am hitcher too. I am hitching just like them on the back of Mother Earth. It has been a lovely ride, mama, so thank you! I will ride till my destination comes, whenever."

Hitcher Three

The angels of nature decide to show me the way as my hitchers. Here is one such a hitcher who rode with me on the way to work.

What a wonderful blessing to all!

See you around, Rambo

Photo from last weekend, in the garage...

Rambo baby succumbed to complications from his enlarged heart. RIP sweetheart.
As treatment was invasive and only likely to extend his longevity by  2-3 months, during which he will struggle, we decided to put him to sleep. 
Thanks for sharing your journey with us, Rambo.

Now, I am sitting here like a fool, wondering about life ...

Will be back when I am ready to post again.

Take care.

"Remember that there is only one important time and is Now. The present moment is the only time over which we have dominion. The most important person is always the person with whom you are, who is right before you, for who knows if you will have dealings with any other person in the future. The most important pursuit is making that person, the one standing at your side, happy, for that alone is the pursuit of life." 
From Three Questions by Leo Tolstoy.

Shadow from a Benz on the way to work.

I will leave you with this song to contemplate Shadows :)

Lil Ms. Killdeer

The joys of a slower commute. 
I see this baby everyday and I wondered why it was talking to me. 
Only after looking closely at the photos, after reaching work today, I was able to figure out the eggs part.
The bird is protecting the eggs. 

PS. The bird is a Killdeer, correctly identified by my college mate

Hitcher Two

On my way to work last week,  I was so happy to see this little guy crossing the street, but headed the ‘wrong way’. Picked him, gave him a ride and was placed closer to the lake. 
I am trying to downplay the ‘I’ part, but it is harder to convey the message, without the 'I', in a sentence.

Yesterday, a little friend came along for the ride on my commute to work.

That's my story and I am sticking to it.

I will leave you with a song that has the word used in the title of this post.

PS. I am increasing the font size on this blog, so even 4/6/infinity eyed folks like me can read without squinting :)

Appreciating shade

Even a Steel Horse needs some shade in torrid weather.
