We took this picture of this wonderfully shaped tree stump that resembles a horse at the Carpinteria Bluffs, a 52 acre nature reserve. We have been exploring the new trail which leads to the Tar Pit Park, where this sculptural stump is located. Here are some of our favorite quotes on the effect of those thoughts one may choose to dwell on:
Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
What we think we become!
We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves. Buddha
It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.
Henry David Thoreau
Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.
