CONTEMPLATION

“It is necessary … for a man to go away by himself … to sit on a rock … and ask, ‘Who am I, where have I been, and where am I going?”
― Carl Sandburg

“As a man thinketh in his heart so is he,” not only embraces the whole of a man’s being, but is so comprehensive as to reach out to every condition and circumstance of his life. A man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of all his thoughts.”

James Allen

Photos were taken at Point State Park, in downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  As I photographed  them, I was wondering what these individuals must be thinking.

BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
