A swan's life

Swan in the Moat, Imperial Garden, Tokyo, Japan, February 2003, Sony Cybershot, Exposure 1/320 sec @ f8.0, ISO 100, no flash © Steven Crisp

That's you! You are that swan! Beautiful, graceful, bathed in sunlight. Yet swimming in those dark waters, with all manner of slithery, slimy life underneath, the bottom feeders, just inches from your tender underbelly.

Die to them both -- the world is not black and white -- you know that deep inside. The world just 'is.' Look within and you will realize that it is all beautiful, and your true self, which is found beyond the world of black and white, is indeed radiant.
