Sleeping with Tigers

Vacation 1416

Seeing elements in our culture that need to change

yet not doing anything, or saying anything

but turning our heads the other way, pretending

not to see, is like sleeping with tigers.

You never know if you’ll wake up

in one piece.

Peace and blessings to everyone.

  1. its quite like insomnia with the tigers… one can never rest, never be at ease, never just be Be. No, the tigers out there are stealthily watching and intent, on everything their eyes see. *Good Post, Nico!

  2. Whoa, great image! Have you ever read “The Balanity of Evil” by a Jewish woman about a war criminal who was frighteningly ‘normal’…he simply followed orders and didn’t rebel. Sometimes we need to be rebels…

    1. Thank you Anna! No I have not read that one, but will check it out. If we do nothing to change our world, my concern is it will come back to bite us later on. Peace to you and rich blessings!
