I also celebrated my 24th birthday on the 7th. Grateful for the eyes that see – grateful to exist.

Tufted Gray Langurs

First the individual portraits: IMG_4871IMG_4851

In Sri Lanka if we want to insult someone for being ugly we say they look like the Gray Langur (Heli Wandura).

Secondly, the social side:

I personally love the last photo where the langur is holding the baby and looking thoughtful. There’s some humanness about it. Also, it was very protective of the baby.. he soon turned to the side, hiding the baby from my sight.

Bat-tree (On waiting)

The hanged man – a bat – waits for his time.

When the world becomes dim,

and the rest fear the night,

the hanged man will set himself free.

“Everything I plan must wait, and

having to wait has made me old, and

the older I get, the more I wait, and everything

I’m waiting for has already been planned”
