Carmi has issued 
as our theme for

Some beautiful paths can't be discovered without getting lost.
Erol Ozan

A quiet, gentle stillness. Reflecting,
on reflections.

"As water reflects the face
and trees
so one's life
reflects the heart."

"The greatness of our destination 
will be lost without the memory or our 
Sergio Tinoco

Enjoy each step.
Each second.
As Life goes by
one knows it can be relived
just by the thought of it.

If you want to change your view, just keep moving.

"Take a detour.
Discover small towns
and friendly faces
that don't grow along the highway."

This photo below is a favorite of mine, not just the awesome view, but the memory of the day.  The rain chased us all day while we celebrated their Aunt Cassandra's birthday in Wayzata and finally the weather changed to sunny!

We did experience a reflection of James J. Hill
 and the Great Northern Railroad in the museum. 
(We had the best tour guide ever too, the munchkins will long reflect on our experience and him. I just know it.)

Mirror, mirror on the table
 who's the fairest bunny of all?

Can't forget to share a mirror reflection of silliness!

Danny thought we needed a picture of us 
with my new funky no-glass glasses!

Here's our quick selfie
 in the rear view mirror!

"By three methods we may learn wisdom.
First by reflection, which is noblest;
Second, by imitation, which is easiest;
and third by experience,
which is the bitterest."

If you look very closely Lyra's kitty-cat, Sparkle
 is trying to catch the tiny star-lights that are reflecting across the wall.

Thanks for stopping in and-

the ransom is the present."

I just love the thought of that, don't you?

Lovely photos, Karen. I like that hoop-y one! You are always very clever at interpreting Carmi's subjects!

By the way, your link in Carmi's site doesn't work. I got here by stopping after Its the bits after that lead us astray!

Beautiful photos and what a thought-provoking post. Hope you have a lovely Wednesday. Our kitties love chasing little bits of light and dust and especially a gnat on the other side of the window!

Fantastic Reflections Karen. I especially favor the tree framed with the boats/pier.
