Let your life lightly dance like dew on the tip of a leaf

Let your life lightly dance on the edges of time, like dew on the tip of a leaf.
-Rabindranath Tagore

Dance is the theme for the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge.

Plenty of rain in Northern California and a couple of new tricks with my Samsung Galaxy gave me new perspectives of rain droplets on leaves and grass. Droplets bead up and roll, taking several other unsuspecting droplets with their miniature dancing deluge.

What do you think of this quote? To me it implies that life is precious and finely balanced, precariously perched in a delicate dance.

  1. Hi Terri,
    Great to see you here at Blogger’s Pit Stop. I can’t tell you what I think of the quote since I am so mesmerized by your amazing photos. What did you use to get the writing over the photo?
    Thanks for bringing your post to the Blogger’s Pit Stop.

      1. I only wish I could send over some of our British rain to you, Terri. We’ve just had one of the wettest Winters on record but have just enjoyed almost two weeks of dry sunny weather. However, after today, the rains are back. That Bunny is going to get very wet when he visits the UK tomorrow night.

  2. Good quote to aspire to but not always easy to achieve. That’s the joy of inspirational quotes though, they are bite-sized reminders that nudge us back into positive ways of looking at life when life drags us down roads to nowhere.

    1. I know, huh? We may like to think we can lightly dance through life carefree, but that same life likes to grab us and drag us down some days! Thanks for stopping by Gilly, good to see you 🙂


    1. Thanks, Janis, I wish Cal would get more rain. Spring is still young, keep hoping! We’ve noticed that a lot of trees that were not watered around our neighborhood are mostly dead. Lot of people just ignored everything…I was able to use a weekly drip on my trees and they came out OK. Those trees are so important for shade.
