Couldn't resist going back to this old tree. The water level is constantly changing in the lakes around here so opportunities come and go with the weather. I haven't caught the light just right yet. I will keep trying, you never know I might just get lucky. Thanks for looking!!! Well maybe I did catch the light just right. Thank you all for the wonderful comments!!!!

A happy and passionate life can be achieved if we listen to the voice of wisdom within

our soul.

Thanks for your visit

...the best move ever.....

Wisdom ceases to be wisdom when it becomes too proud to weep, too grave to laugh, and too selfish to seek other than itself.

Maybe she’ll come with the next spring

Maybe year after year with the white on my head



Forse verrà con la prossima primavera

Forse anno dopo anno col bianco sul mio capo


Wisdom is the supreme part of happiness.



Have a great new week everyone. I have been MIA for a few days, just really busy as I get ready to leave next week for a 2 week training class for work. My time will be very limited this week, but will do my best to visit.

I used Flypaper texture and a new texture from Viviana Gonzalez.

Mandala demo @ St.Merry church :

Maṇḍala (मण्डल) is a Sanskrit word that means "circle". In the Hindu and Buddhist religious traditions their sacred art often takes a mandala form. The basic form of most Hindu and Buddhist mandalas is a square with four gates containing a circle with a center point. Each gate is in the shape of a T.

Olive tree. Almeirim, Portugal



The olive tree, Olea europaea, is very hardy: drought-, disease- and fire-resistant, it can live to a great age. Its root system is robust and capable of regenerating the tree even if the above-ground structure is destroyed. The older an olive tree is, the broader and more gnarled its trunk appears. Many olive trees in the groves around the Mediterranean are said to be hundreds of years old, while an age of 2,000 years is claimed for a number of individual trees; in some cases, this has been scientifically verified.

Pliny the Elder told about a sacred Greek olive tree that was 1,600 years old. An olive tree in west Athens, named "Plato's Olive Tree", was said[by whom?] to be a remnant of the grove within which Plato's Academy was situated, which would make it approximately 2,400 years old. The tree comprised a cavernous trunk from which a few branches were still sprouting in 1975, when a traffic accident caused a bus to fall on and uproot it. Since then, the trunk has been preserved and displayed in the nearby Agricultural University of Athens. A supposedly older tree, the "Peisistratos Tree", is located by the banks of the Cephisus[disambiguation needed ] River, in the municipality of Agioi Anargyroi, and is said to be a remnant of an olive grove that was planted by Athenian tyrant Peisistratos in the 6th century BC. Numerous ancient olive trees also exist near Pelion in Greece.

An olive tree in Algarve, Portugal, is 2000 years old, according to radiocarbon dating.

The age of an olive tree in Crete, claimed to be over 2,000 years old, has been confirmed on the basis of tree ring analysis.

An olive tree in Bar, Montenegro, is claimed to be over 2,000 years old.

An olive tree on the island of Brijuni (Brioni), Istria in Croatia, has been calculated to be about 1,600 years old. It still gives fruit (about 30 kg/66 lb per year), which is made into top quality olive oil.

The town of Bshaale, Lebanon claims to have the oldest olive trees in the world (4000 BC for the oldest), but no scientific study supports these claims. Other trees in the towns of Amioun appear to be at least 1,500 years old.

According to a recent scientific survey, there are dozens of ancient olive trees throughout Israel and Biblical Palestine, 1,600–2,000 years old. Ancient trees include two giant olive trees in the Arab town of Arraba and five trees in Deir Hanna, both in the Galilee region, which have been determined to be over 3,000 years old, although the credibility of the study that produced these dates has been questioned.[citation needed] All seven trees continue to produce olives.


Several trees in the Garden of Gethsemane (from the Hebrew words "gat shemanim" or olive press) in Jerusalem are claimed to date back to the time of Jesus.

She is known by her wisdom, and when I asked her what would be a good representation of wisdom in a picture form, she said "This one is hard, because wisdom involves a lot of things."


I searched for days for an image that would do justice to this wonderful person and her wise ways. It also would be my tribute for her birthday.


Then one day on my way home I saw the sky and rushed to get my camera, because it was incredibly beautiful...


Without any planning, I not only got the splendor of the sky, but also Nancy's silhouete and this turned out to be the perfect picture... It represents her walking in wisdom... always towards the light, so she can be light for others in their darkest hours.


Today I thank you, Nancy, for your unconditional love, acceptance, wise counsel, care and encouragement. You're one of the best blessings I have in my life!


I love you with all my heart, and my heart is filled with joy and gratitude!

Your Brazilian daughter, Eliana

and made a wish

5 Walk in wisdom toward outsiders, making the best use of the time. 6 Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.

This ornamental kale with its free petal structure suggests to me an open heart to receive and give freely. It was a treat to see the lovely drops this morning.
