A Feel Good Story: HAPPY WEEKEND!

To say that there’s a lot of sadness around us, is an understatement. And sometimes joy may be found in the simplest of things and in the most unexpected places like with these two fairy penguins looking over the Melbourne skyline.

Widowed penguins appear to comfort each other in nightly embrace

The lighter penguin is an elderly female whose partner died this year. The darker one is a younger male who lost his partner two years ago. Biologists have followed them as they meet every night to comfort each other. They stand for hours together watching the lights.

Photographer Tobias Baumgaertner captured this image of two widowed fairy penguins looking over the Melbourne skyline. It has won an award in Oceanographic magazine’s Ocean Photography Awards 2020

This story made my heart smile. Sometimes all we need is a hug. Or someone to be there just because—no words, just be there. Or maybe you can be that someone for someone else.



Happy weekend!

    1. Hello dear Linda. I’m so happy it had that effect on you. A coworker sent it to me and it had such a warning effect I had to share it. Happy Sunday (we’re about to be attacked by the winds and rain of hurricane 🌀 Henri) 🌧 ⚡️ ⛈
