Sometimes… reflections are more than just reflections. Like when they create a feeling of peacefulness in us. Such was the case when I happened upon this scene at Garrison Lake.

Quote of the Day: Like water which can clearly mirror the sky and the trees only so long as its surface is undisturbed, the mind can only reflect the true image of the Self when it is tranquil and wholly relaxed. ~Indra Devi
