There is a beautiful complexity of growth within the human soul. In order to glimpse this, it is helpful to visualize the mind as a tower of windows. Sadly, many people remain trapped at the one window, looking out every day at the same scene in the same way. Real growth is experienced when you draw back from that one window, turn, and walk around the inner tower of the soul and see all the different windows that await your gaze. Through these different windows, you can see new vistas of possibility, presence, and creativity. Complacency, habit, and blindness often prevent you from feeling your life.
So much depends on the frame of vision — the window through which you look.

I really love this image — you’re so very good at these. I think I mentioned over at Flickr that I’ve only recently (I know I know) have ‘discovered’ John O’Donohue.
Terrific image, Sherry. Love the angle and feel.
Artistry, Sherry – the composition, the colours, the painterly feel…. and a quote that rings so true. Thank you!
Lovely image, Sherry! Let’s remember to look through all the windows! Have a wonderful weekend!
Awesomeness my friend. Amazing photo and such true words.
