what is real


"Reality is like a face
reflected in the blade of a knife;
its properties depend on the
angle from which we view it."


Master Hsing Yun, Describing the Indescribable

I could not find a face reflected in a knife that was not macabre but i do like this photo of a cathedral reflected in an office building so much better! The photo is from a young couple's South American vacation blog from several years back, which has amazing pics of their fabulous adventure - ah, to be young! And this quote is so true - each of us decides what is real from our own point of view, though we often don't realize it.
