Photographic Journal: Just Be

alligatorNo pretty berries, little flowers, floating blossoms, or ripples in the water today! Instead I saw this handsome alligator.

Even alligators don’t like to be in the water all the time.  After three consecutive days of uninterrupted rain, this big fellow took a rest on a log in the swamp and dried himself off.

Sometimes we need to remove ourselves from the turmoil of life’s events, ‘crawl out of the water onto a log’, and just be.
