Know thyself


“There is only one big hill that we must we climb in a lifetime. We are born at the bottom of it, and we die however far toward its summit we have climbed by the end of our days. This hill has been known among all peoples since the dawn of man in “Know Thyself”.”
from: Almost Home, A Life-Style
by Maggie and David Cavagnaro

 Our best friends gave us this wonderful book, Almost Home, a Life-Style, a gift, on our 7th year wedding anniversary many years ago. 


(The 2 photos were taken when Cheri and I visited the Denver Botanical Gardens 2years ago.)

Nice! I like the stillness and serenity of ponds.

Alyce said...

The water is so still in that first photo that the reflections and the plants on the water look surreal.

Louise said...

Lovely photos. I always like to see water lillies. Not sure if I've ever seen those really huge ones though.

Bev Hankins said...

The water looks so clear--especially in that first photo. I really like the lily pads floating on the clear pond.

Here's my Snapshot

Life is all about perspective and looking at things from different points of view ... and accepting. I want to turn the monitor upside down and view your pictures from that different point of view ... and it is still just beautiful ... because life IS beautiful. Yes?

Beautiful refections. It took me a moment for my brain to realize I wasn't upside down!
