Lovely Lotus Land

I have been doing a lot of exploring since my move to NM. I am always in search of wonderful spots out in nature. Natural spaces tend to bring great excitement as well as a certain stillness. One place I visited recently, called Shady Lakes, came to mind again today when I glanced down at the tattoo on my outer right ankle. It is a beautiful lotus. The symbolism behind the lotus is one of rising up from the mud and muck toward the light and becoming a beautiful flower. This process is very similar to how many of us travel through our own lives. We face challenges and we often struggle for awhile, but if we can keep our focus on the 'light', we come out stronger and more beautiful.
Enjoy the photos. Spend a few minutes in natural surroundings when you get a chance.
