Friday Photo

Today's Friday Photo comes from Villa D'Este in Italy, just north of Rome. This 16th century villa's gardens reminds me of how we sometimes wish our life, and ourselves, to be - laid out in perfect order, perfectly groomed. Oh to dream! But we have more control than we might imagine - especially when life is a bit scattered, mixed up, or plain upside down. Our thoughts form our decisions and matter follows vision and spirit!

Today's Friday Photo comes from the middle of a herd of Cape Buffalo in Kenya. The females and babies are very peaceful, but we quickly left when a large male decided we didn't quite fit in. He chased us for quite a distance! This Cape Buffalo came into this world to be who she's meant to be, to do what she's meant to do. She's perfect just the way she is - eat grass with raggedy ears and all.

Today's Friday Photo comes from a rest stop in Tanzania where these guys raided cars with open windows and handily took whatever food they could. They'd also surprise people having a bite to eat in hopes they'd scare them into dropping food, which they'd make off with before you knew what was happening! I just started a virtual book club with some colleagues and we are reading The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown, so you may be seeing quite a few of her quotes for a bit!
