Komodo Dragon Reflection

Komodo Dragon   (Listen while you read)  

I‘m large, yes? I’m fierce, yes? I’m friendly, yes?

Yes? Yes? Yes?

komodo-dragons-2392146_960_720And this is what the Komodo asks of you.

What are you? What do you want to do? What are your interests? Yes, it is all about YOU…….

(Hurry, hurry, hurry I say; for, the world is your oyster. Are you ready to eat? Are you ready to partake of all the flavours on offer? Would you say yes to taking a bull by its horns and throwing it as far as possible?

Yes, or no?

In order to prevent boredom from becoming a part of our lives, we need to investigate all of those things that come across our path. They are there for a reason. They are not sitting in front of you in order for you to forego them. No, dear ones; they are there because they have something to offer to you.

This may be a conquest, or a learning, or excitement, love; a journey. Whatever its purpose you can be sure it will prevent you from becoming bored…)

      1. Mmmm Oscar has had us up since 3am. We have had heavy rain in UK and he wants to go out, but not till it stops. He shouts all the time as if he thinks the clouds will hear him the nutter x

        1. Oh dear; poor Oscar….
          Perhaps a lullaby may help…? Atmospheric changes can cause little critters to feel anxious. Our Sweetie can, at times, be a little disturbed by rain, thunder and lightening too…. I hope you get some sleep though….!

  1. I had never really contemplated that – to either investigate “everything” that comes across our path, or that they are each and all “there for a reason”. Given that, I seem to have ignored a lot of parts of my life…

    A good read 🙂

    1. Thank You; I’m pleased you think so….. 🙂
      I completely agree about having ignored a large part of life… I certainly did that too..
      Doesn’t always mean that the learning will be ‘uplifting’, so to speak. However; in my experience, it’s always been something I’ve needed to learn… Drat that experiential thing..! At least, good, bad or ugly, it’s necessary; and it certainly does prevent boredom…!
      Bring on the good bits though…! 🙂

  2. whatever comes into your awareness, is the path you should take. If you choose not to, or you choose to look the other way, you go against your own life. You ask for things, you want things but when they are given to you, you turn your head away and pretend that they are not there as you are frightened to follow your dreams, you are scared of what it could mean or where it could lead…

    Good post Carolyn

  3. If I was a Komodo Dragon, I would imagine that my ancestors could crush an entire tree in their powerful jaws, to spit out the pith, and swallow the delectable larvae of the pathetic prehistoric termites that presupposed they could nest there.

    1. Yes, Anne; they probably were rather large (to say the least) in prehistoric times… I’m sure though, I would have loved them then too… (or would I have been a toothpick between their teeth..!?!) Yep; they probably wouldn’t have even known I was there….!
      Silly prehistoric termites; thought they could get away with living…! huh… 🙂

    1. Oh, I love iguanas; they are so gorgeous (but then, I love all creatures). However, I really do have a great love for reptiles; I find them incredibly beautiful, in a prehistoric kind of way.
      These fellows are gorgeous too. (I know I sound a little strange when I say these things however, they are true… 🙂
      In the Sydney Zoo (Taronga Park Zoo) outside the Komodo enclosure is a ‘life-size’ statue of a Komodo. I had a picture taken of me sitting on it a number of years ago. It still surprises me that I look so small in comparison…!!! 🙂

      1. I am in love with your perspective! That is so true, they really do bring back that feel of what those creatures must have looked like before we came on this earth haha! That is so amazing that you looked small compared to them oh my! I would have been frightened and amazed at the same time! Thankyou for sharing 🙂 Your posts and life experience, your perspective, is unique and inspirational 🙂

    1. Yes Kim, he’s some lizard alright..! He can grow up to 3 metres (10 ft) and weigh up to 70 kilograms (150 lbs).
      Once, some years ago, I was holidaying in a ‘bush’ site when a ‘Monitor’ lizard came into the site and started climbing over tables and chairs, fireplaces and garbage bins. He upended one of the bins (about 3 ft high), and rummaged through it before taking off and running/scrambling up a tree. I managed to get a pic of him. He was only about 1/3 the size of the Komodo Dragon, and yet his power was overwhelming. I was, to say the least, quite respectful of his strength, his ability to push things out of his way with ease, and his quick movements which took him everywhere he wanted to go in an instant. To top it off; his ability to climb a tree with such agility astounded me. The locals, on the other hand, who had seen this happen on many occasions, all took it in their stride. haha… 🙂
