A very interesting shot Ryan :) ....I had to look at the original size to admire the details (and to be sure it was a river and not a street).

Thanks, Pam. It's actually a pond. You can see it on the map. It's zoomed all the way to see the far shore.

Silvery stream! Very nice the drops falling into the water, Ryan! Greetings, May

Thanks May! But it's a pond, not a stream. It's often full of geese. :-) Greetings, Ryan

Ryan, I know, it's a pond, you had written it before. It's not silver either:)

What I meant, it looks like a stream of silver.

Ciao, May

Oh, sorry May! It does look like a stream of silver, I agree. Sometimes English isn't the best language for symbolism, since the words are already too overloaded with possible meaning. It would be nice to have a stream of silver, though, wouldn't it? Now that I've found one, I'll go looking for the Fountain of Youth next. ;-)

Silver, which remains silver only as long as one doesn't want to touch it. The same with the fountain of youth! Those who are looking for it, will never find it. :-))

Cheers, May

Confucius or Plato? :-)
