sublime and moving space


"These trees are magnificent, but even more magnificent is the sublime and moving space between them, as though with their growth it too increased.”

--Rainer Maria Rilke

What a perfect thought for Mother's Day: the sublime and moving space created by our children as we watch them grow. We are more magnificent because of those little acorns. Our growth is increased along with theirs and no matter how wide the spaces become, our roots are entwined in a never ending hug.

Happy Mother's Day, everyone.

I really like that idea.

Of course, you know me. I have to be reminded of a song! The Space Between by Dave Matthews was my first thought.

What a lovely shot, Laurie. Do you mind telling us where you took it? That's a sidewalk I'd like to stroll.

Wow, really serene.

I hope you're saving this one.

The shot is great in B&W!
