Aah, yes. Those spots are eternal. Take care!
Thanks so much Pat 🙂💕
But they are wonderful spots… when seen from a distance.
Yes they are very beautiful.
Ah, yes. That wily old leopard. 😉
Beautifully written, hope for the best is always in our nature so predators always have a window 😟
Oh indeed they do Jude. It’s a ll our fault 😕🥰
But we can’t always live in fear, because at the end we would not have lived
That’s right. We must be brave and grab life by the horns 💕
A risk indeed.
Thanks Paul 🙂
a gift received in our moment of weakness can be deadly, be careful, a leopard can never change its spots or even want to, its camouflage. you know your words stir me up! Amazing quadrille!
Thank you very much Gina. I’m happy you liked it. Yes, it is camouflage and it doesn’t change like the surroundings 🙂💕
i did very much Christine
Excellent analogy and so true! 🙂💞
Thank you dear Punam 🙂💕
My pleasure, dear. 🙂
a nice take on the prompt, resonates with many 🙂
It is sad isn’t it? We always want to see imagine something different than what is before our eyes. Thanks Kate 🙂
our delusions, our fantasies of how we wish things to be are often a huge leap from reality! That gap is what causes so much of our pain and suffering. Reality sucks but …
Indeed Kate 🙂💕
“accepting a gift
that stirs emotions
It happens so often, when we don’t know why eyes are moist, while looking at or hearing something. One needs to go backwards and find that connection.
Yes Reena! It is something much deeper that a moment of emotion ☺️💕
I wouldn’t want to get too close to the leopard although it is beautiful.
Exactly! It looks so beautiful hanging in a tree, but look out!
wooooah!! that leopard analogy is hauntingly powerful!
Thanks! Yes … beware! 🙂
Very clever analogy, Christine. It takes some learning experiences to realize when that vibe is so strong it might be a warning!
Yes indeed it does Lisa. I have been hearing that expression since I was a child and it certainly has sharpened my instincts 🙂👍
Yes Sadje. You never know what you get. ☺️
But do I trust
accepting a gift
that stirs emotions
I really like this. It has a lot to say to our choices.
Yes Dwight! Love is blind 🙂
Very much so!
Indeed, caution and a clear eye is a good thing to have by.
Thank you so much 🙂
