Fluid Reflections

"The clock is running.
Make the most of today.
Time waits for no man.
Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow is a mystery.
Today is a gift.
That's why it's called the present."
from Sun Dials and Roses of Yesterday 
by Alice Morse Earle

The Trinity Church, completed in 1877, 
stands as a centerpiece of Boston's lovely Copley Square. 
In todays puddle of melting snow, 
I see a blend of past, present and future. 
I see the history of our forefathers, 
the weather and clothing of today and the bright spot ... 
the child in those bright clothes ... 
the bright spot that is the hope for our future! 

I love this scene
as it captures both the
passing of time
and the beauty of the moment.
