I found these palms gently swaying in the evening breeze on the Coronado Golf Course the other night.  In this pleasant setting I was lulled into a moment of peaceful contemplation, when I heard a man bellow "Fore!" followed by "Lady, you're gonna get hit!"

This quote by Confucius seems appropriate, since I really do strive to learn through reflection, but still discover wisdom the hard way sometimes.

"By three methods we may learn wisdom:

First, by reflection, which is noblest;

Second, by imitation, which is easiest;

And third, by experience, which is bitterest."

~ Confucius

Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. It's such a delight to see these images. I lived in Coronado for over 20 years, and now live on another island, Puerto Rico. You made me smile with your comments...and Confucius couldn't be wiser! :-)
