i would rather swim...free and easy, even if that means drowning...under water its all safe :)

i loved the post though, Lorraine...i must say i do that dance quite a few times in a day when i am back home roaming in the fields, crossing the streams...And a Nice shot, Lorraine :)

love,
dev

now read the contradiction in the two stanzas...call it life :)

Lorraine said...

Call it life indeed I love swimming and I love the water and the rocks and I have so much to remember x

Devika Jyothi said...

Yes, i understand that Lorraine perfectly...but what is life without its repository of memories that ought to make us humane -- possibly that was God's design for us, let's take it so,

"repository of memories that ought to make us more humane" - I know we were much better off as children...but that's the irony of growth, irony of life...

You are taught lessons unnecessarily...where i think God is a Supreme manipulator just finding his pleasure, playing with us,

Devika Jyothi said...

better said as where "i have to doubt" God is a Supreme manipulator just finding his pleasure, playing with us,

duly agreeing that in the final analysis...you are often left with only God (especially when you are a believer...that He allows our idiosyncracies is another matter :)

Lorraine said...

Hey Dev, believe it or not, I have only one response, God, Allah, Budhha, whoevemer....That Pure Spirit is Unconditional Love, from that point of view we have nothins else to learn, we only need to remember....(last line I'm copying from a very spiritual source)There is no judgement there are no cmmandments there isn't even immorality, there is only Unconditional Love, but not on earth, that hasn't happen aned we are so far from it, our fault, our shame

Devika Jyothi said...

Yeah, we have said about that...And love takes no offence too....but then we do have other feelings inbuilt into us..we are humans, after all...better termed social animals,

And to kind of repeat y'days -- human mind can at the max, can reflect what is shown - animosity gains animosity, friendliness gains friendliness...anger gains anger (though after a while wisdom asks us to laugh at it)

forgiveness and unconditional love are matters of the heart...but heart doesn't want to involve with all these things too much,

so as far as we can be -- we can be loving with little attachment -- thats how i see it all :)

love,
dev

Devika Jyothi said...

well seems i've gone a bit too serious...don't read too much into it...it's all alright...life is not easy for everyone at all times...yet we manage to get through :)

This is excellent L!

Devika Jyothi said...

loving with little attachment - or loving with detachment -- and i must say, that kind of 'love' is not what the world perhaps want...but i have only so much to give...take it or leave it! :)

I have been scrolling down to all of your latest captioned photos...once again, I am reminded of why--in the beginning--I was so captivated by the beauty of your words, the beauty of your eye, the beauty of your spirit.
