A Little Bit of Heaven

8:53:46 AM EST
Feeling Quiet

A little bit of heaven.. that's what Shambala is.

A number of people have either left a comment or emailed me about the photo of the cub on yesterdays journal. I took the photo when I did volunteer work at Shambala Preserve in Acton California some years ago. I have a link in "favorite links" to other photos that I had taken while there, but decided I would bring what I think are the "best" pics here to the journal for you to see.

Oh, I should mention one more thing.. the photo of the cub I entered in a contest, I received a letter saying that my picture made it to the "semi-finals".
Anyway, here are a few others I took during my time at Shambala....

"Your body vibrates when the lions roar."

"My personal favorite: Daisy the Cougar"

"Timbo the elephant..

Tiger cub (no name)

I don't know what it is about loading the pictures on to the journal but quite often i see the photo doesn't look the same.. it has smooth and blurred areas and even "wrinkled" areas compaired to the actual photo I have. When I look at the picture in the file manager by double clicking it.. it looks fine. It's only when I put them in the journal.. I wonder what it's doing to the pictures?? maybe they should be Gif's instead of jpg's? Oh well, nothing I can do about it right now. .. hope you enjoy the photo's anyway!

If you like pictures of wild animals you should visit Astaryth at her journal. She has wonderful animal pictures there!
And if you'd like to see and learn more about Shambala Preseve you can use this link to the Shambala Website.

Mid-life means that you become more reflective...You start pondering the "big" questions. What is life? Why am I here? How much Healthy Choice ice cream can I eat before it's no longer a healthy choice?
