Artist's Description

It is said that you wait for a bus and then three arrive all together. Today, a wet rainy miserable “summer” Thursday, was one such.
Unbelievably, I saw several butterflies, there was VERY good news from the hospital and then, this, a baby stoat playing in the wilds of the University of York campus.
It’s rare enough to see one of these elusive little creatures, but to actually photograph one is a dream beyond imagination. And on such a special day too (also my long ago first dog’s birthday. Happy Birthday, Lassie)
SH50 crop only

This sky where we live
Is no place to lose your wings.
So love, love, love.
Hafiz حافظ

Human beings are members of a whole,
In creation of one essence and soul.
If one member is afflicted with pain,
Other members uneasy will remain.
If you have no sympathy for human pain,
The name of human you cannot retain.

“Of one Essence is the human race,
thus has Creation put the base;
One Limb impacted is sufficient
For all Others to feel the Mace ”
—Saadi (1184–1283)
