Small Virtues






As I pulled up to the gym the other morning for a group exercise class, right there in front of me was this perfect shadow dance. Much like the infamous pose of Martha Graham. I feel fortunate to have been there at that moment to see and capture it so that I can share it with you. A soliloquy, of sorts.


"Do not think a small virtue
Will not return in your future lives.
Just as falling drops of water
Will fill a large container,
The little virtues
The steadfast accumulate
Will completely overwhelm them."

~The Buddha


May your each and every day abound in small virtues.


Every week, a group of us from around the world post our shadow shots over at Shadow Shot Sunday 2. Entertain your muse and be amused by stopping by to see what others have posted! You can view all of my 2012 Shadow Shot Sunday images on my Flickr account.

I never thought of spindly trees performing aerobics...yet this one is doing its morning wakeup exercises with vigor it seems. This one seems to be getting its heart pumping...excellent antique edit!
