Reflections


"Reflect upon your present blessings - of which every man has many - not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some."
Charles Dickens






Sitting by the pool last night, with the backlights on,
I was able to capture in the still water of the pool, the reflections of the palms.



And again early this morning, the reflections were again easily captured.



"The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves,
and not to twist them to fit our own image.
Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them."

Pat, if you get a chance to go to the Riparian Park, and you want company, email me! I'd love to join you (if it worked out) on a walk back in nature! The pool water is so calming - or is it lighting?

Me too. Me too. You can't go without me. Waving hand wildly in the air.

It's hard not to want to make people be who we want them to be - but it is the right thing to do.

And the pool is gorgeous.

Ye-ah. That's why humans bury their eggs on the beach and then swim out to sea right away.
