Misery’s Reflection

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

I like the rear-view mirror: the things you see in it aren’t rushing towards you…

Grow Brave by Reflection

I love those who can smile in trouble,
who can gather strength from distress,
and grow brave by reflection.

Leonardo da Vinci

I confess to shamelessly using Jakesprinter’s Reflections challenge to post water pictures, as I simply love water and it’s reflections.

Where Peaceful Waters Flow

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…

Sunny Reflections

Reflect upon your present blessings,
of which every man has many,
not on your past misfortunes,
of which all men have some.

Charles Dickens
