Don't be shy

"One's own self is well hidden from one's own self; of all mines of treasure, one's own is the last to be dug up."


~Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

    Good Morning, Lisa . . .

    I'm back because this is my pick for today's "Admin Fave" in ** ABCs and 123s**

    It still reminds me, as it did when I first saw it, of the "definition of green"!!

    Your title is perfect . . . it gives "life" to the photo, and brings thoughts and mental pictures of "shyness" to mind. It's really, for me anyway, one of those pictures in the saying

    "One picture is worth ten thousand words"!! I like an explanation I read somewhere of the literal meaning of that saying - - - "One picture's MEANING can express ten thousand words" . . . kind of says it all :)

    Congratulations!! Beautiful photo . . .
