SECRETS (Aug-14, 2017)

What is the secret of decline?  Life until something or someone dies? Is there life after death? That depends.  It’s not my intent  to answer these questions,  but

human beings are in my opinion made up of body, spirit, and soul. The physical body dies at one point, and the spirit and soul lives on. No reincarnation to something else – you live with yourself – forever!

Kind of a scary thought eh? Better start working on myself a bit – I wouldn’t want to go into eternity, like I am now. and polish the rough edges in myself!

Man made things decline, meaning a downward spiral until it ceases to exist. With created things, life and death may take place simultaneously – difficult to comprehend sometimes. Thought this image shows it well.

Restaurant and below a closeup of the door. The blue car is kind of in the way, but wanted to show you the angle of the roof:)
This town is only accessible by boat and has 180 bridges. The lakes in Giethoorn were formed by mining peat (which was in the old days used like wood for a a wood stove). This town became famous after 1958 when the Dutch film maker Bert Haanstra produced “Fanfare.” This town is especially popular by Chinese visitors (between 150 -and 200 thousand Chinese people a year!)

Door of this restaurant in Giethoorn, Holland – also called Venice of the North. The window about the restaurant seems mysterious, and in contrast with the tidy restaurant. Like to know what’s going on there behind this window? Or is it just a dusty attic? Secrets, secrets:)

Peaceful Clouds in Amado County. Wouldn’t you like to FLY like they do? El Dorado Hills is and expanding and many houses here are built at the moment.

    Wonderful collection of photos — love the fig tree trunk — and the striped blossom reminds me of a popular south Louisiana flower — a camellia. Thank you for sharing!

  2. Tamar says:

    So many pretty sites! Thanks for linking up!

  3. Debbie Smyth says:

    Oh a very philosophical start and interpretation of my decline theme – many thanks Jesh

  4. ladyfi says:

    Love the stripes on the flower! Lovely shots.

  5. jesh stg says:

    There was a time I was thinking about making philosophy a major in college – but … what would I “do” with it? so I chose psychology instead – more pragmatic, lol!

    Great entries for all your memes. The ‘door’ picture…a lovely door, but my imagination was quite taken with the window above it… it looks like a cover of a mystery story (a recluse or a spy hiding behind that lace curtain and watching to see who comes to the door?)

  7. Gorgeous photo’s again… and ofcourse I recognized Giethoorn immediately 😉

    My believe… one is good enough as one is…one should be content with himself… not ame for unreachable goals

    Have a wonderful ABC=day / -week

    Terrific variety of images! There’s so much that is beautiful in this world.

  11. Got to reflect on the words you used to open the post. Really a lot to think about. Yes, it is true life and death coexists in a weird and sometimes absurd way. Great photos! #OurWorldTuesday

  12. riitta k says:

    Stunning photos, thank you for linking. Enjoy your day!

  13. Very nice shots! And your text in this post is also beautiful, makes people think SHARP! 🙂

  14. Lovely photographs, Jesh. I like how you captured the new bud and leaf along with the old dead one.

  15. Norm 2.0 says:

    Nice collection. Compliments to Hubby for his night time Long Beach shot – well done 🙂

  16. joey says:

    Love the soft furry bud with crisp dry leaves. The night boat is also nice.

  17. jesh stg says:

    Thank you Norm – I’ll pass it on to him. Actually all these images are his!
    My computer crashed. They could save the data, but they are very unorganized in saving it on to a disk, so after a week I still don’t have my photos back!

  18. jesh stg says:

    These are all hubby’s captures, Jean. He’s an excellent photographer who refuses to blog, lol!

  19. They’re fabulous shots, he certainly has an eye for photography.

  20. Peter B says:

    Deep thoughts at the start of your post, and lots to think about! Love the LB Harbor photo… congrats to Hubby!!

  21. A lot of food for thought with this post. Thanks for linking up today and have a great weekend!

  22. jesh stg says:

    Thank you! the harbor of Long Beach is such a cool place to take night shots. During Christmas time they have a parade of lighted boats.

  23. Thought to reflect on but I reflect on my own decline too often now…..Lovely photos….Michelle

  24. I’ve always thought I’d be me when I die. The thought that I wouldn’t doesn’t sit well with me.

    I wonder why the Chinese like the house so much. I’ve always liked gabled windows ever since I read Anne of Green Gables.

  25. jesh stg says:

    sorry, I have to be more clear. The Chinese like the whole town which has the same idea as Venice- the roads are the canals!

  26. james says:

    Nice shots! I love the dark and mysterious reflection one. 🙂

  27. cool night reflection 🙂
