makes me wonder


“the beginning of love

is to let those we love be perfectly themselves,

and not to twist them to fit our own image.

otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves

we find in them.”

I really like the picture, like the rain is disturbing that reflection of ourselves we tend to look for in others...
I'll write that down to reflect on, on rainy sunday afternoon.
have a lovely weekend.xxx

That is a really cool picture, lets your imagination wander to see the many things it could represent.

i've always love that quote and very cool and appropriate image to "reflect" it.

Oh, I've never captured raindrops! Love this photograph, Georgia. I opened it up to see the drops of water splattering across the surface. Just perfect for this quote. Narcissism at it's most brutal: tailoring those we love to our own needs and desires.
