Looking up amongst the pine needles and cones to a glimpse of cloudy blue sky offers a feeling of peace and tranquility. It would be a great place for a hammock - a nice view to ponder daily meditations! The 'down time' of weekends have really turned into catch-ups ... still not caught up, but must indulge in a bit of nature and/or photography 'therapy'.

Writing has become therapeutic, as well. It provides a release of thoughts and reflections, with special connections to photographed images. Journaling, of sorts, allows thinking to take a unstructured path, without sequence. It is both a self-exploration tool and a framework for developing ideas. Sometimes the words flow easily, other days require additional contemplation - always worthwhile...Freedom Park, Naples, FL


  1. Cool picture. Can almost feel myself lying in that hammock and looking up at the pine cone and needles.

  2. a) I love evergreen and pine cones.

    b) I also soooo appreciate your journalings and musings. Thank you for sharing. I'm encouraged to try a bit myself, on occasion!

  3. Nice variety of textures in this photograph. Makes one stop and appreciate.
