This is so gorgeous -- I can't bear to even talk about the image with words!

Looking at this reminds me of why, in this day and age, men should still, say, open the door for a woman. It is not a question of ability, or weakness. It is a question of respect and acknowledgement -- that women are the manifestation of the Goddess on this earth, from which life springs forth. I practice this kind of respect, simply as a natural, accepted acknowledgement (yes, I _worship_ my wife! :-)). It is for the same kind of reason, for instance, that Hindus fold their hands, bow to each other and say "Namaste" when they meet: they are acknowledging the Godhead inherent in each person they meet.

If anyone has any doubt or denial that every woman has this Godliness inherent, just scroll to the top of this page, open your eyes and look. :-)

Thanks you for sharing this wonderful image!

Namaste

There is nothing more holy than the sight of a pregnant woman.

This photo is kind of creepy. It's almost abstract. Very nice use of light and shadow!
