"Not wanting"

It seems every moment of not wanting is inherently blissful.

Perhaps "not wanting" is the natural state. No need to fight, judge, or condemm "wanting" when it arises; only recognize the co-existent realm of "not-wanting."

You have a knack for sharing real zingers Diane, I love to visit this blog. The photo says the same thing as the quote, only in the language of art. Thank you.

Beautiful clarity of the reflection!
Such a serene and blissful scene although I sense it is hot out of that shade. :)

Beautiful picture and lovely reflections in the water. Thanks for your comment.

That's beautiful, Diane. Almost like an oxymoron in a sentence - seeing water in a desert. I love the reflection of the tree branches in the puddle, and the saguaros in the background, my all time favorite cactus!

Is this your lake? I think it is bigger than my pond. My favorite reflections are those on the water, and this is a beautiful shot.

I came over through your profile this time rather than my dashboard. I didn't realize you had a second blog.

I so love the landscape of the Southwest US. Beautiful reflection, thanks!

Outstanding image. I'd love to see this one in B&W (not that your color shot is any slouch -- LOL)!
