The Word "Reflection."

    "Reflection" has a sound and an image all of its own, something like contemplation, but more relaxed and open -- an opinion that results from careful consideration. Hands back, head up, eyes gazing straight at the thought, listening quietly in a comfortable chair or perched on a rock. Noticing the edges and the ripples of the ideas and the concepts.

    In the lists below, you will find links to poems, essays, and multimedia that are products of what we consider to be thoughtful reflection about mental and spiritual growth, relationships, healing, growing older, growing up, and dealing with the tides of life.
