    Such a lovely tale with such beautiful photographs.

    P.S. As for the Minecraft-addled boy, I think he took in more of the day at the sanctuary than you think 🙂

    Such a beautifully written story, MJ.
    Tigers are stunningly beautiful creatures and I’m glad the husband ignored the edict.

    What a lovely story of acceptance, silence, and pretty tigers. I just re-viewed “Life of Pi” last night, so this post seems especially poignant. The part about your son reminds me that sometimes we’re just not ready to see beautiful things in our lives–it isn’t until we are ready from the inside that we can see the great stuff going on beyond us.

    Happy New Year to you and your beautiful family.

    Hilarious story and a lovely one to boot. Happy New Year, MJ!

    so well done. I have often thought of story-telling with photos instead of illustrations because I have zero artistic talent. I now know how successful it can be. As always, thank you for sharing.
