I close my eyes to stop the time
And see eternity inside me mind

What defines youth, longevity, and well-being all at once?
During a trip to Japan in 2011, I saw this cute little baby turtle doing a yoga pose at Omori Park in Fukuoka, Japan. Turtles are known to be able to live long life spans, and at its youth, this little one is only at the start of it! And while its life is already expected to be long enough, this little one is doing yoga exercises; he/she is off to a very good start towards a very long and healthy life! Without a doubt, the environments that young ones are exposed to will affect their growth immensely; when newborns are with parents who are overly stressed, or in state of chaos, they grow up to wild kids. But for this one that is exercising peace and tranquility, it will surely live a life of harmony. Perhaps we humans in our hustle bustle lives need to learn from creatures who take things more slowly! I’ve had my own share of stress lately, and needed to bring out something calming.
This photo was taken with a CASIO EX-FC 100 on July 3, 2011. then taken into Photoshop to create an image that reflected the state of mind – though the raw image wasn’t too bad.

The pine leaves and the blue damselfly in the corner show how small the turtle really is. A clearer view of the damselfly can be seen here
