A view from the Chimmony Earthen Dam, reflecting the pristine forest on the opposite river bank. The presence of mist is what gives the dim effect. This reflection is the truth of Nature….honest and innocent.…which can only be the way Nature exists. She does not have a mask, nor does She pretend being someone else.
The clear, crystalline reflection in the water, reminds us that what is inside is what is reflected. Even for humans, what is in the mind should be what comes on one’s face, words and deeds….expressions unhidden, unmasked.…without any pretence….There’s nothing wrong in our face reflecting multiple, mixed emotions….we are outside what we are inside….If we accept this fact, and also live according to that, life is very simple. We can laugh without guilt, and that becomes our hallmark.
