On Living


"Living is no laughing matter:
you must live with great seriousness
like a squirrel, for example-
I mean without looking for something beyond and above living,
I mean living must be your whole occupation."
~Nazim Hikmet

OMG, I have been seriously busy lately if I missed this post!

He is adorable and the quote is great. It almost fits squirrels, I say almost since I have observed their playfulness as well. What would living be without a little fun now and then?

Squirrel Queen, I agree, squirrels are playful as well. I thought of you as I snapped this photo in Massachusetts last June. :)
