How does it feel to be different in a sea of others' sameness? 
How to express oneself freely or to hold back, even when the desire is for beauty and harmony.
How does it feel to be alone due to restriction of space, territorial lmitation even in a place of beauty.
Restricted in your own truth?

ספירת העומר

GEVURAH sh b' TIFERET 
Restriction in Compassion, Truth, Harmony

Kabbalistic Sephirat Counting of the Omer day 16,
which is two weeks and two days of the Omer.
day 2 of week 3.

Mama Hummingbird gave birth to two eggs that hatched in a teensy nest maybe 1.5 inches wide. Two baby hummers are tight in a tiny nest filled with harmony and compassion.  For harmony as the babies grew, only one could fit in nest and then they flew away.

I was careful in photographing and held back from what I would enjoy, that I did not disturb the baby birds. I restricted my movement actions and sound level of my voice so the babies would be wrapped in harmony in their tight little nest.
This is my understanding for being in Gevurah sh b'Tiferet.
