Happiness

A reflection in the window of the main library at the University of Arizona, for participation in  Weekend Reflections, a fun photography meme hosted by James:


The sculpture that is being reflected is Girl with Doves by David Wynne 1970.

"Happiness is itself a kind of gratitude."

Wow ! At first glance on the reflection picture I thought it was some girl stretching for exercise, before I realized her arms would have been too long... And then I saw the second picture, from the original subject... Nice sharing !

I didn't know that you had two blogs.
I really like this statue and it makes a wonderful reflection.

I like Krutch's writing - the funny thing about this quote is that I think it's better the other way 'round, "Gratitude is itself a kind of happiness."

I LOVE the sculpture! And what a bonus that it's also a reflection in the window!
