On Harmony

[image sent to me by a friend, from]

This beautiful image makes me think of a quote a dear artist friend
of mine in Tofino, Julie Draper, once wrote:

"The animals already
are living in harmony.
They are waiting for us
to join them there."


  1. Oh, what a wonderful photo. The quote is a perfect accompaniment.

  2. Fabulous post, Sherry!

  3. Truly I disagree with the quote, Sherry. I guess I am not so idealistic. I wonder how the concept of predator and prey in the animal world could be explained. Each animal must find a way to keep itself safe, but there is a lot of killing/disharmony going on.

  4. Oh I love that quote. It is so true. Nice picture! ;-)

  5. I would love to be that close to a friendly tiger! And the quote is beautiful. Thank you for this moment of peace tonight... Amy

  6. magnificent photo and post! thanks for stopping by my's so nice to meet you. purrs, Rio from Barcelona

  7. Fabulous thought. Thanks for posting it.

  8. I thought about predation too, as I was posting it. However maybe what Julie was getting at was how animals live in harmony with the natural world, and according to its laws, which humans would be wise to do as well. Thanks for visiting, folks! I so love hearing from you.

  9. I love the quote too.
    Maybe it's always been the hunter and the hunted but, each only killing what it does to survive and, not for sport or gain.
    I'd love to be that close to a friendly tiger. I guess no animal wishes to kill unless it's either hungry or in fear for its life.

  10. Those are wonderful words, and my instinct too tells me that the reference is to harmony with nature and natural law.

  11. So right. And when with animals I am more peaceful.

  12. Love the image Sherry, I have a long history with tigers. Maybe some day we can sit down and I will tell you all the stories. Thanks for the photo, and the quote.


  13. I do like the quote. It kind of makes you sad though that it is not a reality.


I so appreciate you taking the time to read and comment.
Thank you so much. I will be over to see you soon!
