When pressure seems to get you better
Find the place where feeling centers
Point to fact: I can’t walk past
This garden offers a looking glass

Care for a Reading?

    Incredible picture…wish I had a place nearby like that! Beautiful words…find a places that centers, then everything else fall into place.

  4. I find when I can “center myself” that everything bothering really becomes sticks and stones… or in this case rocks and water. lol Thanks, suzicate πŸ™‚

  5. very interesting points. very thought provoking.

  6. Glad you think so, trisha. I was just catching up on your blog. You are writing thought provoking lines yourself πŸ™‚ http://mydomainpvt.wordpress.com/

  7. Wow…I love this one. πŸ™‚ The photo is beautiful, just like your words. πŸ™‚ Have fun today.

  8. Thanks, D. Glad you like it.
    Enjoy the day πŸ™‚

  9. This is awesome Adam. Where I live we have trails cut out all through the woods. I love taking prayer walks through them in early morning. Hearing the bird sing, and watching all God’s little creature give you peace, and joy. So awesome to be able to release all your stress, and talk to the Lord.

  10. Sounds like you relish your prayer walks, Viola. Glad you find solace out on your trails. Sometimes I like looking at the scenery until it all kind of becomes muddled and out of focus πŸ™‚

    What a gorgeous place to stop and take a look eh? Very uplifting. There’s a little chinese themed koi lake in Finsbury Park, it’s been a bit cold so far to sit and watch them but it’s really relaxing.Awesome poem Adam. You keep getting better πŸ™‚ ❀

  13. Great photo. The water is so vivid and “alive”.

    • I was kind of unhappy with the lack of detail on the bright side of the photo, but I think the water makes up for it. Thanks, Lawrence

      • Hi, I don’t see anything lacking in the photo at all – in fact, the white stones/rocks and the water appear complete to me. It really is a great photograph.

  14. Thanks, Beth. Read my graphic design books and such at a really nice koi pond at our community college. Did a lot of writing there. Parks and ponds are so relaxingβ€”much needed time away from the computer…. So glad your enjoying Finsbury despite the cold. BTW-hope you did your best on the exams πŸ™‚

  15. Appreciate that, Lawrence. That’s just me wondering if the picture would have come out better if I used a polarizing filter. I’m my own worst critic.

  16. That reminds me of the koi pond in the Japanese Gardens at Balboa Park. It’s one of our favorite spots at the park!

  17. That’s a nice place. Think I found an HDR image of it…

  18. More than anything, I am drawn into the beautiful blues and greens of your photo. Stunning, Adam.

  19. Thank you, Leslie πŸ™‚ The picture was taken fairly early in the morning. Perfect time to capture colorful reflections in the water. The sun seems to bring out highlights and mid-tones nicely then (“…But only so an hour” β€”R. Frost).

  20. well done Adamfor peace and reflection , nature is a sanctuary.

  21. Well said. It is πŸ™‚
