Today's Picture to Ponder Photo
Fireflag flower and Flowing Plant with Reflections creating an almost circle - Both photos were taken in Green Cay Wetlands, Boynton Beach, Florida

A feeling of peacefulness, for me, is emanating from each of these pictures. In the top fireflag flower photo it's the softness of the blurred background that's creating this. In the lower photo, perhaps it's the appearance of completeness created by the almost circles as the bending branch tips meet in the water and reflects back upon themselves.

Self-Reflecting Queries

#1 - Are there places in your life where you have unfinished business and completion would give you peace?

If so, I invite you to take on one or more actions to have that take place. Most likely even the simplest action will start the process of serenity.

#2 - In the fireflag flower photo the result of the completion, so-to-speak, is a triangular shape. In art principles, as I recall, the triangle is said to be very dynamic. In this photo, it's balanced nicely by the background.

In the midst of your very busy life, are you aware of where the balance is?

#3 - For whatever reason I love the fireflag flowers, especially abundant in the summer in Wakodahatchee and Green Cay Wetlands. Perhaps it's simply the delicacy of the flower and its color. Knowing how much I do love then, I assumed that I've featured them in Picture to Ponder sometime in the past year and did not want to be redundant. In fact, when I checked it's been over a year.

Are there places in your life where you are hiding what you are passionate about, thinking people will be bored? If so, I invite you to start sharing with one or more persons. See what opens up for you and, most likely, them. So much happens in the interaction.

For me, simply learning through an email or comment on the blog that a photograph or a thought expressed in Picture to Ponder has made a difference for you is the fuel that empowers me.

There are some amazing comments on the blog. If you haven't checked them out, please do. See BLOG.

Have fun noticing, or discovering, the triangles and circles of completion in your life.
