A Cardinal Flower growing along the Susquehanna River in Vestal NY. This is one of my favorite wildflowers in my area, just love it!.   “Through my love for you, I want to express my love for the whole cosmos, the whole of humanity, and all beings. By living with you, I want to learn to love everyone and all species. If I succeed in loving you, I will be able to love everyone and all species on Earth... This is the real message of love.” ― Thich Nhat Hanh, wisdom quotes from Teachings on Love

This was a picture taken on the first morning of our  father-son canoe trip that me and my oldest son went on a couple weeks back. The adventure lasted for three day as we camped, kayaked and fished on the far side of Stillwater Lake in the Adirondack Mountains. The first night we camped in a farmer's field some 30 miles from our final destination.   “Waking up this morning, I smile. Twenty-four brand new hours are before me. I vow to live fully in each moment and to look at all beings with eyes of compassion.” ― Thich Nhat Hanh quote

A Sunset shot taken last weekend on Stillwater Lake in the Adirondacks of New York.   "No one can escape from illusions unless he looks at them, 
for not looking is the way they are protected…
And how else can one dispel illusions 
except by looking at them directly, 
without protecting them? 
Do not be afraid, then, to look upon fear, for it cannot be seen". ACIM
