the hand that does not grasp

The bird of paradise alights only on the hand that does not grasp.

* I took this photo in San Agustinillo in the morning light with the zoom maxed out on my little Canon powershot. A lucky catch!


About Vicki L Flaherty

I am most alive when I am creating, whether through writing, gardening, photography, cooking, crafting, sewing... Running and yoga enrich my being. I am happiest when I’m with my husband Jim. Travel opens me to new possibilities and greater awareness. I find a special joy when I’ve helped someone see their brilliance and express their full potential. As I've focused on living more mindfully, I've found special joy in expressing myself through poetry and photography, and in truly being in relationship with those I meet along my journey.

    Beautiful shot and such good advice. Many struggle simply because they try too hard.
