“Reflection is a flower of the mind, giving out wholesome fragrance; but revelry is the same flower, when rank and running to seed.” – Desiderius Erasmus
Sitting still, perfect calm, waiting for the sun to warm my soul.

In times of quiet reflection expect the unexpected to appear.

“The waters closed over my head, and I thought I was about to perish. I called on your name, Lord, from the depths of the pit. You heard my plea: ‘Do not close your ears to my cry for relief.’ You came near when I called you, and you said, ‘Do not fear.’” – Lamentations 3:54-57
