  1. I love that quote, and have never seen it before. So true it is, the rocks add so much. Nothing prettier than a rocky mountain stream.

  2. It truly would. I had a small waterfall off my pond once. (It leaked and I made them tear it back down.) And you could situate a rock just a little different and get a completely different sound.

  3. That quote is extraordinarily deep. Hardships (rocks) make each individual Life Song more beautiful as we bumble through, learning and growing as a person. This post is lovely, as is the photo. Your photo makes me want to go off into the woods and ponder stuff, breathe in the outdoors and wafting woodsmoke, touch that icy water, and listen to the earth. Sigh….

  4. Oh, AND that’s so cool about what pomona belvedere said about “tuning” a creek. I’d not heard about that but must investigate. Not that I have a creek to tune, but that I’m enamoured with the idea of it.

  5. Nancy .. there is always something so beautiful about capturing a picture with reflecting water in it .. the leaves and stones add that earthy Fall feeling .. but the water is special !

  6. nice shot & a very nice selection of words! reflections are sometimes more interesting than looking at the trees directly… or at least, there is that interesting, mysterious feel to reflections.
    really liked you extra. sensory. perceptions. as well :-)

  7. Nancy, just look at the thoughtful comments your beautiful photograph and the wonderful quotation inspired. :-) I, at first, was inclined to look at the surface value of each, which is actually good enough… but Debi really made me stop and think. (Thanks to you both!)

  8. As always, I thank each and every one of you for taking the time to leave such kind and generous comments. I have a thing for stones and rocks and water, and am always drawn in by them, regardless of time of year, but this wonderful autumn color always beckons.

I appreciate and welcome your comments!
