Life’s a Reflection~

Of what we see.

What we perceive,

depends on where we look.

Beauty is everywhere,

just waiting to be found,

even on the cloudiest days.

Cheers to you from Olympic National Park~

(Note: We are home at The Holler now. These photos were from our May trip. I wouldn’t want you to think we are never home!)

  1. Looking at your fabulous photos this morning is really invigorating. I may never see these sights without your blog. The art of buildings in the middle of nowhere is just amazing. I like the idea of seats in the middle of forests to just sit and take a moment to really look around.

  2. You have given us another series of beautiful photos – and thoughts to ponder.
    What we perceive also often depends on who is looking and how our mood when we look.
    Copying another blogger, I have started adding “date of our visit” at the bottom of my posts because some friends and family were indeed having a hard time keeping up with where we were at the moment. 🙂

  3. A great message. At my school crossing, we have a neighbor’s beautiful backyard behind us in the morning crossing. Time to time, I remind the kids to look at it and to look at their surroundings everywhere, because you’re right, we’re surrounded by beauty. Sometimes, we have to remember to look!

  4. A profound thought to begin my day. I agree – life is a reflection and we must, must, must embrace our moments in the spirit of this idea. The quote that came to mind when I was view your exquisite photos was by Carl Jung: “Nothing has a stronger influence psychologically on their environment and especially on their children than the unlived life of the parent.”

    • He was such an incredible person. It took me a long time to really understand Jung, but once I did there was no going back. Did you know he was struck by lightening as a young man and was pronounced dead. He resuscitated, but his spiritual experience led to his subsequent theories. He famously said, “I don’t believe in God. I know God.” Not an exact quote but close enough. Thank you for sending another of his prescient thoughts my way Rebecca ❤
