I’m grateful for unexpected reminders that life is BEAUTIFUL, and that we must never stop living in the NOW.

I was enjoying amazing weather (and breathtaking light) in front of the Royal Palace here in Madrid, just snapping the random photo here and there, when these two angelic creatures bounded in front of me (a total stranger) and begged me to take their photo – no barriers, no fear, no wall – just an unfettered love of life! I got the impression they were the best of friends, not siblings, and it brought back a RUSH of childhood memories – and I was left really touched by these two open, shining faces. I shot about 5 frames, and they were off – they had life to live, after all!!!

In an instant, as is always the case in life, our encounter was over.

Beautiful! I wish them both a simply spectacular future.
