Part of every misery is
the misery’s shadow or reflection:
that you don’t merely suffer,
but keep on thinking about the fact that you suffer.
— C. S. Lewis
In the business world,
the rear-view mirror
is always clearer
than the windshield.
– Warren Buffett

The Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections.
What calms you down?
Looking at something natural at a distance, ideally something blue or green: water, leaves, green grass, sky and clouds. When I do that I can instantly stop thinking. It gives me a feeling of peace, of connection, of groundedness, and then I can stop taking myself and my own little problems too seriously.
Whats your favorite fantasy sandwich?
Provided they’re vegetarian, I am partial to all kinds of sandwiches: classic cucumber, grilled cheese and tomato, on occasion even peanut-butter and jelly.
What was your nickname growing up either as a kid or now?
I tend to go by my initial “K”.
If you were a crayon, what color would you be?
If I were a crayon, I’d be a Jaxon 2000 ultramarine blue, which is a highly saturated deep blue, tending to purple. My absolutely favourite colour! 🙂 And the crayons are a dream…
Reflect upon your present blessings,
of which every man has many,
not on your past misfortunes,
of which all men have some.
― Charles Dickens
