Droplets create beauty in a basin of water.

Time is a river, eternally flowing.

Every instant that passes is a tiny droplet of time. Each precious drop creates new rippling beauty. The hourglass drips, drips, drips.

Peer into this stone basin of crystal water…

Please enjoy some photos. I took them this afternoon.

I don’t say much on this blog about who or where I am. My intention is to enjoy photography–and walking. ¬†And to provide a sense of beauty that is universal. And possibly, maybe, to touch the minds and hearts of some readers.

But I must now say that this particular blog post and the next feature photos from the Japanese Friendship Garden in San Diego’s beautiful Balboa Park. I live nearby. A couple days ago I became a member of this garden. It’s a truly wonderful place.
