What they were most aware of was how quiet the place was. I liked the silence. Being a teacher and mother and always living in constant noise it is great when you find yourself in a place where the silence is ever-present. It also gives you a chance to look around and appreciate nature.
This was when certain things struck me. There were images that I thought sent a message or captured an emotion ... once you looked at it in a different perspective. (or for me ... I just put more thought than necessary... but I liked thinking it).
This one made me think of LOVE. Two kissing trees that stand the test of time. No matter what they will always be there for each other.
This one made me think of personal loss. I recently lost one of my aunt to Cancer and I lost my father 13 years ago to Cancer as well and this image just made me think of the lives that have fallen from the 'tree-of-life'.
And this one I interpreted as "The road less travelled is sometimes hard and lonely... but it does build character."
I thought of this when I saw my little girl running happily along ahead of me. She was alone and running without any fear... not looking back and I wondered if she would be as brave in the life's journey ahead of her.
I hope she is. I hope she remains strong and confident and never loose her precious smile.
