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. I once camped in the Olympic National Park (many, many moons ago) and was blown away by beauty. Thanks for these beautiful reminders of that time.
    Delighted to know you are home in the hollers, though. Enjoy your time at home.

  2. Incredibly beautiful photographs, done with such artistry and with such an eye that always captures the essence and the intensity of the nature that you photograph with such love and care. And you are absolutely right, beauty is everywhere but sometimes we just do not look. Thank you Cindy for bringing such beauty of nature to our eyes.

  4. Awesome photo series, out of all the National Parks, the Olympic NP is my favorite because of the diversity of scenery ~ and the beauty which you have shown here. Cheers and wish you a great autumn, Cindy.

  5. Cindy, I am sorry to write my humble opinion right here. I would not like to bother your followers who read your last post about anxiety, if any of them will read my comment.
    You know what, that situation we are in is the great test for the society. We have take care about ourself, our loved, friends and people around us in general. Mostly in the stressful situations people behave accordingly. However in the dramatic situation a lot of people losing their mind and create panic and instability. Nowadays I read a lot of posts and articles about abnormal human behavior, especially in the grocery stores. It is sad.
    You do the great job trying to explain people how to avoid anxiety and stay calm. Thank you for your efforts.
    I’ve been in a lot of stressful situation in my life, know people, and know how to survive.
    Hopefully, everything will be ended and come back to normal.
    Stay calm, healthy and happy. Smile and laugh. Life is going on!

    • Thank you so much for your thoughtful and helpful insights Alexander. I couldn’t possibly agree with you more. “Stay calm, healthy and happy. Smile and laugh. Life is going on!”
      I love this philosophy! In life we are always in the midst of death. We must live fully in this moment in order to enjoy the time we do have. It has always been the case that now is all we really have. They have never been any guarantees about tomorrow. So I agree, smile, laugh, live. Life is beautiful. Thank you Alexander and take good care.
