    Very nice!!

    The peaceful nature of a pond
    like Thoreau knew at Walden
    like i know you know from your sharing photo
    like i know from many moments spent near ponds as well
    optomistic living and hope
    sharing is knowing
    advancing understanding
    you and i
    your village
    my village
    one village
    one world

    Thank you . . gpark
