Purple water lily

The temple bell stops but I still hear the sound coming out of the flowers. ~Basho

Greetings. I’m Robin. Heather invited me to join you all here in the Temple of Solace. I’ve been reading, occasionally commenting, but mostly lurking. It’s very peaceful here.

I brought along a small gift of my art, photography. This particular photo, for me, represents the element of water. Water represents the emotions, femininity, the soul, wisdom, and cleansing. Although water does have a harsher side to it, I see the water here as soothing, calming, purifying, loving, and healing.

I’m not sure what to add at this point. I’m still getting used to the format here so please pardon me as I blunder around a bit.

  1. St. Paul of the Cross, a 17th century mystic, once took a stroll for meditation. Winesses say he sudenly turned and pounded on some flowers with his staff, crying,

    “How can anyone think with all of you singing that way!”

    fine shot end thought,
