Inferior As a Child



To be inferior to my wife when hiking allows me to take many lovely pictures of her back.

But right timing is the key factor of being inferior, especially the moment I swing my hands to regain my balance this morning. Mistakes my reaction, a nose-fuming macaque stretches its neck as close to me as possible to show me its big and sharp canines. No photograph of course, I move away from this invasive animal immediately.

I always try to be inferior, as children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive for me to grow down; I keep my child's heart.

A hug for you both.

Such a wise man you are, being inferior at the right moment keeps peace!

I hope your wife like the pictures you took of her :-)

Talking about hiking with your camera probably hanged on the shoulder, how do you keep it dry when you get sweaty?

Btw, I like the green background of this picture.

To your wife I say, "...glad to see you're (your) back!"

Picture, again a WINNER

NO...ya don't want a "Macaque-Attack"...too many diseases they carry and cross over species with the bad stuff.

Greetings to your "model" wife!

Nice photo of your wife hiking. Glad you averted the close encounter with the creature. Be safe.

I am usually ahead of my hubby while hiking. Lovely shot, looks like a pretty place for a walk. I am glad you were safe from the monkey. Sounded scary. Have a happy day!

A beautiful walk (I am always ahead of my husband too, not sure why)....I am glad you and the monkey didn't tangle, that would not be fun.

My IPAD sent the message before I was through typing (it has a mind of its own). I really wanted to tell you to keep your child's heart forever!

Z tą małpą bym się nie chciała spotkać, jak Ty. Dobrze, że żona była przed Tobą i tego nie widziała. Pozdrawiam.
In the monkey, I would not want to meet, just like you. Well, the wife was in front of you and you do not see it. Yours.

I keep my child's heart. I like that. It gives me reason not to stress-out. wink

betchai said...

keep the child's heart, it's great to have such simple happiness and humility. and as always, love your thoughts and your pics.

I wouldn't like to get very close to a macaque, but I'd love to see one one day.

I think it's wonderful to be able to think like a child. Too many adults lose that ability.

The fact that you are a child at heart makes your photos and comments so interesting. I hope you will always remain a child at heart and will continue to share with us.

How great to be able to see things as if for the first time, like a child. Beautiful picture!

Your wife hikes with you through thick and thin of the jungle. That's just wonderful!
