    I love the stillness and peacefulness this stirs within me. A great atmosphere for pondering life and the parts of which relates to one’s own soul. Would love to be there right now, actually…

    Lovely image, M… and very well done.

  • Thanks you Donna. I certainly wasn’t peaceful after a near runin with a passer by. Some people are so rude.

    Rudeness seems to be a common and highly acceptable trait these days… I hope it didn’t spoil all your morning – or the rest of your day.


  • Water off a ducks back to me. There were plenty of other nice people to make up for one individuals misgivings.
