Quiet Contemplation...

Laying in the hammock yesterday under the shade of this beautiful flowering Pohutakawa tree, which is to many, New Zealand's Christmas tree, I was contemplating on these words from Henry David Thoreau.
"I went to the woods because I wanted to live deliberately. To front only the essentials of life and see if I could learn what it had to teach me. And not, when it came time to die, discover that I had not lived".
And I was happy...

  1. Beautiful post, keep up the good work.

  2. Keith, be happy in your hammock!
    I love those beautiful New Zealand pohutukawa trees.
    Your picture brings colour in our grey German winter. The first snow is melting away and maybe we’ll have some more snow for Christmas.
