Reflections are tendrils to the soul…
As summer closes its door, September is always my time of annual reflection…both contemplating events of the past year and what I hope for the next. More than the one commonly celebrated on January 1st, September is my New Year.

Other Reflections from the Archives of my Mind and Photos:
“Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.” ― Søren Kierkegaard
The world we see is a mirror of our thoughts…we mirror back what we see…when “you spot it, you got it,” meaning if you can see it in someone else you must know it in yourself.
“The closer you come to knowing that you alone create the world of your experience, the more vital it becomes for you to discover just who is doing the creating.” ― Eric Micha’el Leventhal
Reflection, to me, also means deep thinking, strong consideration. Sadly, a bewildering undercurrent promulgated and proliferated by Big Tech, SM and MSM redefines critical thinking as conspiratorial, erroneously labeling it evil rather than expansive. This costly convenience of instant but biased answers catalyzes cancel culture and suffocating censorship. Erasing history erases the ability to look deeply, contemplate and understand.
Nature offers beauty everywhere. Just look. See deeply. Think. And reflect.
“Reflect upon your present blessings — of which every man has many — not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.” ― Charles Dickens
