A Short Trip Into The World Of Reflection

Hello Friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Deep Reflections 61620a” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

The still water brings to life a mirror image of the surrounding forest. As I gaze into topsy turvy world below my imagination pulls out visions of being able to swim through the sky and dive into the tree tops. In my dreamworld water is as breathable as air. The realm of the fish fades away as if it had been the reflection and the reflection was reality. Here we can swim through clouds and shape them into the images we desire see. We look down to waters surface and the world we just left shimmers as a small bird skimmes the edge of our new reality. The ripples emanate throughout this realm of reflection and it tickles when the waves pass through our bodies. The bird that caused the ripples disappears over the edge of pond but the reflection soars into the void beyond our perception. It’s that moment that the decision to either follow the world if reflections into oblivion or return to the real world and become merely normal once more. Living in a dreamworld might sound appealing at first but the realization that a person can only hold back the truth for so long beckons one to return to the world of challenges. After all, it’s the challenges that become victories.

The Pond King … A Fishy Tale.

Hello Friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Reflection And Raindrops 21620a” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

Raindrops gently disturb the reflections of the forest on the ponds surface obscuring the image that reaches into the murky depths. Small birds skim the surface as they pursue the retreating insects. The king of pond rises slowly in case the birds drop their quarry into his realm. His eyes are tuned to ripping surface and he knows the difference between a cicada that was carelessly lost and the thousands of raindrops that replenish his kingdom. He can feel each vibration report the precise location of the disturbance. There it is. In the midst of the pitter patter of rain was a plop and then intermittent buzzing of papery wings. The olfactory system of any bloodhound was never as keen as the pond king’s. He knows the birds have dropped a cicada. He moves like a living torpedo. His scales flash as he turns and slips through the water. His mouth gapes wide as he breaks the surface drawing everything in giving him the appearance of a whirlpool. There’s a soft splash and in an instant the cicada is taken. The pond king turns once more to the base of the tree on the edge of the water and the twisted roots which are his castle.

A Trip To Summersville Lake On The Cusp Of Spring

Hello friends Tonight’s feature image is titled “Summersville Lake 31020” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

Standing out over the water on a silent morning I look out over the lake that has been such large part of my life. The water always seems to carry it’s own mood. I have seen the lake display it’s anger when choppy waters are a greenish gray and seem to want to toss small boats onto the rocky shore. But thankfully today is different. Today a profound peace fills the canyon as the surrounding beauty soaks into the water. The glassy reflection gives the illusion of another world laying just below the surface.

The Grand Tour Of Salmon Run At Winter Pool

Pulling back from the water in panoramic mode makes the other side look like an island floating in a sea of clouds. I have never been on a kayak but days like today do make me long for the ability to toss in and just paddle until I’ve explored all 50 miles of shoreline. If not for Hughes’s Bridge it would be easy to picture one’s self as an explorer surveying some ancient world long forgotten. The caves and overhangs along the canyon walls may have been shelter for people who once thrived here. I have often wondered if you looked around would you find stone tools deep inside them? As ponder the possibility of the past a huge swirl breaks the surface and dissipates without revealing its source. I’m reminded of the legendary giant catfish that are said to hole up in those same caves in summer. But this one gets to remain as the one that got away. I just wasn’t fast enough to get a clear image of even the ripples and the legend continues as myth.

The ripples were gone before I could zoom in and focus.

Perhaps the next trip I’ll run into the fishermen who finally landed a monster.

Taking A Few Minutes To Enjoy A Peaceful Morning

Hello friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Kanawha Falls 12420” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

As the night shrinks away in the glow of the morning sun the clouds retreat into the horizon. The peaceful sky is mirrored by the upper Kanawha River as the local ducks glide in for a landing on the far side of the water. As their ripples proceed them small fish leap forward and dive into the safety of the deep. The remnant clouds marble the sky in layers and golden rays breech the ridge. There’s still a bit of a chill in morning air which smells of woodsmoke mingled with the coffee in my tumbler. On this particular morning the forest is silent save only the droning roar of the water spilling over the dam and the rocks below. In the coming days the rain will return but for now there is peace.

The Edge Of Destiny

Hello friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Where Dreams Awaken” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

Standing on the edge of reality one realizes the the junction of what is and what may be. There is that place where hopes and dreams intersects with strength of will and determinations.  We forge our destiny like steel by tempering our failures into victory.  Steel is heated,  folded and hammered over and over again until all the impurities are brought to the top and removed.  The steel is then shaped to its given purpose and a balance is struck between hardness and flexibility.  Only after being shaped and tested is it polished and given it’s final edge. 

Achieving a goal is the same. We are put through the fire and hammered over and over again to bring out our faults and weaknesses so that they can be removed.  We’ll be tested over and over again and tempered by the master maker until we have the right mix of hardness and flexibility to meet our purpose.
