13: Slow down now

Slow down now. Take it easy. Take a deep breath

Sometimes i really need to remind myself of this. Slowing down comes natural for snails. Home is wherever they are.
I think we humans can learn a lot from snails. For me snails represent beautiful metaphors and a powerful reminder that it’s ok to take things a little more easy.
Why worry and hurry if you can achieve the same thing while being relaxed? Focusing is much more easy when we’re relaxed.
And we’ll get there in the end, just like the snails do. Just glide towards where you want to be and you’ll arrive there one day.

Speaking about the heart, why not see our heart as our true home? Everything else can be taken from us, but as long as we are alive our heart is with us. And if we take up compassion as our armor, we even have our own little shell protecting us just like the snails have…

Over de heg klein

Lean on, balance yourself for the act. Just as the dragonfly easily balances itself on a branch, i had to balance myself and lean over a little beech hedge to get this shot. At first i was not too happy that the dragonfly had moved from a ‘better’ spot, but seeing the shot with the leaves out of focus actually creates quite a nice atmosphere πŸ™‚ Well, at least that’s what i see in it lol

Invasion

Last week suddenly these beetles came out of nowhere and utilized the grass. Have no clue what kind of beetle this is, but i could get a nice close-up shot as one was resting on the mint plant. Pretty cool looking beetle πŸ™‚
