Venturing out to take some photos of Mother Nature's beauty after she had issued nearly a foot of snow less than a week after summertime temps, I eagerly places Sidd on the railing of a snow covered Pagoda in Hanscom Park near where I live in Omaha Nebraska.

The color contrasting and peaceful feeling was a treat to behold, and made me feel thankful to be alive.

If for company you cannot find
a wise and prudent friend
who leads a good life, then,
like a king who leaves behind a conquered kingdom,
or like a lone elephant in the elephant forest,
you should go your way alone.

Dhammapada Words of Wisdom Chapter 23 the elephant Selection 10

If one finds themselves surrounded by fools, apathetic, lazy and without reason,
finding fault in trivial things, crying like naughty babies about this and that,
perhaps it is best to go your way alone. Yes I will indeed...Thank you Very Much.

    It almost look like Sidd is sitting in front of a backdrop. Very cool. Terrific light and very wise words. I have eliminated the majority of those out of my life.

    Sidd lived in Tibet so long that the cold doesn't bother him! (I can see you two barreling down the interstate in the HOV lane. Who said Sidd isn't a passenger?) Nice words of widsom, bro.
