More and Less

I like to go hiking very early in the morning, just to witness Cerok Tokun waking up, so are the babblers, the brooks and many others. Every step I take, the nearer I am with the tranquil and beautiful nature.

I am not an eagle that soars sky high, but each of my simple dreams does have wings to fly. They fly around the trees, sing along with the birds, skimming the surface of the water and dive into the undergrowth.

Yes, these little critters are neither an eagle but they do enjoy their own life.

Happiness is simple; the less we ask for the more we get.

Not only are you a wonderful photographer, you are a wonderful philosopher as well: "The less we ask the more we get".

Happiness is simple, but all too often, we complicate things.

what a nice thought to ponder about: "happiness is simple;the less we ask, the more we get." nowadays, with the earth that keeps shaking...my simple prayer is "keep us safe,keep us healthy,keep us together"
