Life Lesson

There was a remarkable photo by Hasan Jamali, The Associated Press, printed in today's Anchorage Daily News.  It shows five Bahraini women waiting outside a hospital for news of loved ones injured during the on-going protests in that country.

What struck me about the photo is how the women's postures offer a pictorial lesson for living a highly regarded life:

Woman on far right:  See no evil.

Woman next right:  Hear no evil.

Woman on far left:  Speak no evil.
Two women:  Give lots of hugs.


  1. I saw this photo online but I wasn't as observant as you. I love your thoughts.

  2. Your power of observation is priceless....I'm jealous.

  3. An amazing photo. My favorite part of the picture is the little bit of one woman's bluejeans sticking out from under her burka. Underneath that, she's pretty much just like me. Or you.

  4. Great, Jeanne,.....just great !
