Life is GREAT

I believe that life is great. 

I met a chameleon which was within a photographic range this morning. How great was its life for seeing a species that had never crossed its mind before?


Life is great. We were able to see eye to eye, but it never jumped onto me when we kept  ourselves at only an arm's length .


Life is great. It seemed to be as handsome as me. What was in its mind? No, that required no second thought at all!!


Life is always great, and continues to be great, as long as every single little thing is great, and I can continue to hike, forever.

life is always great, sometimes we just fail to realize it is.

Życie jest cudowne, chociaż czasami są smutki. Dla Twojego ślicznego kameleona życie też jest ciekawe. Pozdrawiam.
Life is wonderful, but sometimes there are sorrows. For your lovely chameleon effect is also interesting. Yours.

My friend who I exchange blogs very often, thinks I have vibes with her. Now I think we are sending vibes to each other.

I do indeed tell my students to think about Queen Elizabeth and the parachute. I will now ask them to imagine pussy cat getting a ride and her poor dogs barking jealously.

Other than your talents, photography, writing, communication, I see another which sets you apart from MANY...your
AWARENESS of the Universe.

The inevitability of life and death...only the plastic flowers will not die. So which is the more beautiful? That which grows, lives, and gives a scent--and one day dies...to another life?

It's getting "deep" in here, so I say goodbye!
PEACE!

He really seems to enjoy. Looks to rest, almost swing a little relaxed on the branch.

Life IS great when you appreciate the little things in life. (Although as lizards go a chameleon isn't really a little thing is it?) Beautiful pictures.

It is wonderful to be like a chameleon having the ability to adapt and change. Life will be great for you both.
