This is one of my favourite spots in the woods near my home. I love the way the water reflects layer upon layer upon layer of trees, and leaves, and sky. I love a sudden drop and ripple on the water, the shake of the landscape in the pond, and the clarity as the water calms again.

Somehow it is easier to see the clarity of the world upside down in its reflection. From my different perspective I notice new things that are some how easy to miss the right way round.

What is it about a reflection that helps us see?

When someone holds up a mirror to us we don’t always like what we see. But, if that mirror is held up with curiosity and acceptance, we can sometimes see the truth of ourselves – which is indeed a wonder.
