What is it about reflections that take hold of me? Actually, they seem to snatch most of us.
Off the rippled surface, I chuckle at what comes to mind… Of the possibility it might be a portal into another dimension, of a dream world seen but beyond reach, of diving rather than flying into a sky, of reaching for the moon and stars by dipping in a hand. I enjoy how a reflection can change reality’s perspective into a visual mantra.
But the story of Narcissus and Echo comes to mind as well. Warning that reflection can also seduce us into missing the beauty that is right in front of us every moment.
