I like that.

Beautiful snow scene. Winter is just around the corner and that makes me happy.

Trixie said...

Now that's so SUHWEET!

Simplicity delivering Profundity. This has always held allure for my simple mind. I am pleased that you like it too, Dear Willow.

I like the reflection of the one element ... in the other. Much like what Friends (and Lovers) find in their Friendship.

namaste ...

John-Michael said...

A bit of uncomplicated comfort that my Soul has always sought (and finds in the Person of who You are ... my Dear Trixie.)

Lovingly ...

....punctuated with hugs and kisses.

John-Michael said...

Oh yes, My Darling Lime! And both are DEFINATELY integral elements of the 'musical composition!'

(And I, for one, am an avowed 'Music Lover.' [big ol' smile])

John-Michael,
How do you think of these wonderful things. You are really something!
Hugs,
Rose

John-Michael said...

You are very kind, Rose, My darling Friend. But this is the awareness that is (and always has been) my Reality. And, please believe me, my Sense of awareness can be a genuine pain in the tush of those who sense life from the tangible, data, and tactile bent. So, it is with a sincere respect for them and their temperamental inclination that I offer the view and perspective that is natural to me. Again, it is all of us stewing in a mutual pot of life-soup that makes life so tasty. [smile]

And, believe me, You are a delicious 'ingredient' in my life's Substance. And I am so grateful for your receptiveness to what I offer here.

Friends make the world more beautiful...especially friends like you, John-Michael.

I'm glad Willow found you. :)

nitebyrd said...

I LOVE that picture! The sentiment is also beautiful.

John-Michael said...

Thank you, Sandra. Appreciating our Friendship, My Dear One, is something that I savour as I would a bouquet of various flowers of different hues and fragrances. The more I rearrange and reposition it for a new appreciation ... the richer the Gift becomes. I am so grateful for what Life has blessed us with.

John-Michael said...

And, you know, Sweetest NiteByrd, I can't remember which I had first ... the image in want of interpretation ... or the sentiment seeking illustration. I was so satisfied with the pairing that they seemed (to my senses) as one. Your being pleased, pleases me.

Lisa L. said...

I do believe that true love must be built upon friendship. Beautiful picture.

John-Michael said...

So much easier to love ... what we like. I do believe that you make a good point, Lisa. Thank you.

maria said...

I agree with Lisa...
True Love is and must be based upon reason.

I absolutely adore the pictures you post!
Thank u once more, u always manage to make my day, u know that:)

John-Michael said...

I am recalling the reason for this wonderful Love that you and I share, Dear Lisa. And knowing that we met through the Leo Buscaglia Forum makes perfect sense as a basis for this commonality of Spirit that we have enjoyed for these years. And, anew, my Heart celebrates our oneness.

Crystal said...

Then would you care to dance John-Michael?!

John-Michael said...

To dance above and beyond the grasp of all that would try to bring you lower than the heights of joy and bliss ... this is my prayer for you, Dear Crystal.

Lovingly ...
