Weekend Reflection

While on a walk in Wooster Square I noticed that somewhere attached to the posters announcing the Cherry Blossom Festival someone by the name of Arion had posted "Cherry Blossom Messages".
I took the time to walk around the entire park to read them and photograph some of them. They are great reminders and reflections of what life is all about.
As I turned the corner and down one entire side of the street, with the sunlight reflecting brightly I noticed what I thought was some 'schmutz' on my camera lens. Lo and behold it was not 'schmutz' but my own reflection on the plastic coating of the written reflection. I thought, hmm, perhaps the universe is reflecting back to me that which I need to know right now.
Think about it...pass it on...

  1. First of all...you found some great messages to think about and to bring to us, in blogland, to think about...some dang good advice! The cherry blossoms are exquisite...and your reflections on those messages are amazing, and something else to think about. This all equals a very fine post! Thank you!

    The last photo "ohne schmuch" would look lovely on my Macro Flowers Saturday meme too. You are welcome.
