“The Thaw”

“The Thaw”

“The common eye sees only the outside of things, and judges by that, but the seeing eye pierces through and reads the heart and the soul.”
― Mark Twain

I had no idea just how interesting something as mundane as melting ice could be.

The image I chose for today is a large slab of lake ice which had begun to melt. The gradual melting process showed some very intricate crystalline structures within the ice, made even more dramatic by the extreme purity of the ice. I keep finding myself staring deep into the clear columns, wishing I had something bright with me that I could have put behind the slab. That, would make it even more beautiful.

  1. Again, I truly appreciate your chosen quote.
    Reminds me of a zen thought:

    “Two things:
    1) Look
    2) See”

    Seek peace,
