Entry for Dick Greenberg - Real Life Miscellaneous (Story & Reflection)


Blue Spring


©Story & Reflections, by Patricia


As a Tourist with my camera by my side, I spent time walking around the Blue Spring Heritage Center. Slowly I sauntered on the Trail of Tears in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, My heart was pounding; my feet felt the strain and traces of a great Nation of People who traversed to different locations before me. Without a doubt, I navigated through sacred grounds. There, I connected with the natural beauty surrounded by opaque, translucent, and tranquil reflections of Autumn, 2017.

From Flower Mound, Texas it is about a 6 ½ hour drive. In between, I covered beautiful Oklahoma. People who are thinking about relocating to North Texas should know, you can see and do a lot and it is a short day-trip to many other attractions in Oklahoma and/or Arkansas.


Blue Spring is a nice quiet getaway. I am dedicated to taking photographs and writing about my experiences. Possibilities are endless. Believe it! I am happy to share my stories about my lifelong passion for the natural wonders in nature, such as “38 million gallons of cold, clear water,” into the Blue Springs in Eureka. Each day the lagoon is stocked with trout. Fish keep moving. Impressions have always fascinated me. Understandably, I know how important it is for people contemplating a move to explore land, water, schools, scenery, and opportunities. Yes! Location is a high priority.


To me, Autumn is a symbol of courage because of its many changes. I’ve discovered that peering into still waters with clear mind is beneficial to any type of decision-making. Native American Indians knew first-hand the definition of trials, hardship, but most of all hope for a better future. As a woman, I understand the cycles of life. Yes. Me too! Being around water in nature it is easy to be cognizant of our basic needs and the spirit energy of body and earth. Reflective waters have special meaning in relationship to our natural resources and the colors of fall and earth. Each shade has its own passionate reverence to creation. The quest for peace is a lifetime dream. Moving, letting go, and starting over is something I understand.

What was perpetrated on Native Americans on the Trail of Tears was shameful, Patricia Feager ... so ironic that there is beauty to be found there as well.  Thank you for sharing your experiences and wonderful pics ...

Hi Patricia Feager, amazing photo, I thought it was an oil painting. When I want to unplug, recharged, get inspired, I go by the water. Nothing like being close to nature.

Patricia, this felt like a Monet to me. And I fell in love. Then  you added your "reflections" in words that absolutely supported the beauty and reverence of our Native peoples. And life. Always such a pleasure when we delve into your graceful thoughts.

Patricia Feager à la Monet! Impressive photo, Patricia - this should definitely be an entry in Dick's October contest. 

Love the words as well and I completely agree with you; there's something about reflective water that is true zen - peace, harmony and all things tranquil.

Hope you have a fabulous Friday!
