Two images I took at Mingsha Mountain (Jiuquan, China) make me ponder…
A mother and a child. Blue sky, white clouds, and earth sand. Red and pink add color drama to the scene. Mom and Girl have almost an identical stride if you look in closer. They speak the same body language and their movements rhyme. The tie between mother and daughter is unbroken under all circumstances.
A guy with a backpack was climbing the sand hill in front of me. Suddenly he dropped his backpack on the ground and began to slide down the hill. He did not need a sled nor the bundle of gears, and I heard him yelling to the sky, “OMG, life is good.”
As simple as that, I found these two simple images refreshing to my soul.
