Reflections on a Mountain Stream--a birthday tribute

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my dear hubby!

The highest good is like water.  ~  Lao Tzu 

excerpts from an essay by Tim Freije:

"The truth inside all human beings is like water...Consider...

It is clear, pure, and clean in substance and in spirit.

It is naturally refreshing and full of energy.

It shines and sparkles when exposed to light.

It flows around obstacles...with great flexibility, creativity, innovation, and artistic beauty."
