Re(ality)flections.

So, what's more real these days? Hard, realistic reality or the reflection of ourselves we'd like and love to see?


Discuss, please. :)

sometimes it's nicer to look at the reflection, but the reality is always tapping on your shoulder.

and, really? beautiful photo!

Perfectly put. At the end, yes, it's the reality.

thanks, Duff!

Oh, we are all philosophical now? :)

Much of my reality is virtual communication with real people. In the meantime my so-called real life is becoming more and more surreal-looking. And then you come up with this! *scream*

LOL

Interesting photo. :)

I'd like to think that as I got older, harsh reality and idealistic reality got closer together.

Of course that could just the idealistic reality talking, here. ;-)

Oh...and amazing photo. Can I steal it for screensaver?

Of couse you can, I can even send a larger version. :)

Hmm well then. Feeling a wee bit philosophical?
I think that love is the most real thing, at least for me it is.
I love my child like no other. I love you in a way that only you can be loved by me. In a way that can only be expressed through these two beings at this time.
I love others in ways that are significant only to them and me, and yet these expressions of love are more real to me than the glass table I'm sitting at.
These feelings remain tho miles separate us. Tho oceans come between us. Tho time and space move and flow changing constantly.

my two cents worth.

Yes, love is definitely it. the only thing/emotions/sensation that makes us move.

"I love you in a way that only you can be loved by me. In a way that can only be expressed through these two beings at this time."

... no comment, my dear C, no comment.

Reality is what I have to deal with every day...sometimes that reality (at work) is hard to deal with. Those are the times when I like to escape to another place, either real or in my dreams. I think people see the real me and not a reflection of how I want to be seen.

Great pic too!

and..... I want to see REAL you, too, even more real than I see you now, Al.

Take care

thanks
