Your photographs are so artistic and lovely.

I know this kind of silence. My assumption is that it arises out of a deep need to maintain control, but does it?

Thought provoking.

Randy, thank you very much!

Mary Ann, hm, I never thought of "giving the silent treatment" regarding this quote, but on second thought you might be right. Hm. Have to think about that. Have a nice weekend!

I remember the verses of the great poet Antonio Machado, the speech of an old tree...

Excuse that he writes in Spanish:
¡El olmo centenario en la colina
que lame el Duero! Un musgo amarillento
le mancha la corteza blanquecina
al tronco carcomido y polvoriento.
