I was walking along the shore of a lake near House On The Rock in Wisconsin last fall, when I came around the corner and saw this tree's reflection on the perfectly calm bay. I was so happy I had my camera with me because it was such a cool site to see.

I know this is a pretty comon thing to do with a reflection, but this is the only time I'd actually taken a shot like this, so I thought I'd share.

I'd been looking for something to use as an avatar for a while now. My 5 year old so took that picture of me.:-)

I love that. Does he know he's a published artist, then? :-)

I enjoyed the books - I like JRR Tolkein but much prefer his good friend (dearly departed) CS Lewis. His life was a story all its own (Shadowlands) and a movie or book I highly recommend! Better than a Shakespeare play.

I only read the first couple books in the Chronicles of Narnia. My friend found a passage at the end of book 7 that she thought might be doctrinally unsound so I'd love to read the whole thing now, as an adult. I enjoyed Screwtape Letters and The Four Loves. My mom read the trilogy and I found two of the books at the local library book sale but I wouldn't want to read only two. Maybe I should go to ebay now and look for it! OK, back to our regularly scheduled program... :-)
