Jolie paire (les filles) et belles courbes de tendresse où l'on pose la tête, pour sentir et ressentir. Joli duo (les photos) de gros câlins. J'aime bien au réveil. Ton noir et blanc est superbe vraiment, bien lumineux et contrasté comme j'aime. Et j'adore aussi la netteté, détails du crin des chevaux et cheveux des filles.

I've never really understood man's relationship with a horse, because I'm a "townie" and never had the opportunity to get that close to nature?

Kiki from Ambert, France

Ton image est une réponse à ce Koân qui pourtant n’en demande pas… laisser venir les choses toutes seules en douceur. Les enfants le font tellement naturellement. J’aime les sensations transportées et ressenties ici … chaleur des contacts peau contre pelage, chaleur des regards remplis d’amour (le tien compris), caresse de la lumière et du vent qui ébouriffe si légèrement. Qu’ils sont beaux tes petits anges et qu’elle est belle cette image de la tendresse !

4 Aug 2011 5:28pm

@Kiki: Mille mercis, ma chère Kiki, comme toujours (koân - sur lequel tu es la seule à réagir ;) - compris) tu me lis si bien que c'est un p'tit bonheur*** Douce soirée ~

hugo poon from hong kong, Hong Kong

Dear k@, no superlatives are good enough for these or perhaps words are really not needed... except that I wish to thank you for letting us see this timeless beauty and feel a moment that is so pure and cherishing! And you wonderful quote just reminds me of some words of Lao Zi (Daodejing 48): "When one devotes himself to the Tao he seeks from day to day to diminish (his doing). He diminishes it and again diminishes it, till he arrives at doing nothing (contravening our heart and nature). Having arrived at this point of 'non-action', there is nothing which he cannot do."

5 Aug 2011 9:56am

@hugo poon: Aww, how I love that, exactly in my zen mood & reading of the moment (Taoïsm too), thanxxx wise U*

Infinie caresse et douceur dans le toucher, le ressenti, le regard... quelles belles images si fortes dans lesquelles l'énergie positive circule. Un koân à méditer, longuement. Je pense à cette phrase "... donnez-moi la Sérénité d'accepter les choses que je ne puis changer, le Courage de changer les choses que je peux et la Sagesse d'en connaître la différence..."
Bon WE K@.
