  1. Indeed, but so much that is imagined is also taken to be real. We are not very good at separating the two.

    I believe that Jules Vern nailed it Cherie… your landscape is beautiful… and that… is reality….peter:)

    I actually have to agree with that assessment, Cherry! :)

  5. But reality can be quite cruel sometimes. ;)

    Interesting that Verne would say this, eh? Obviously, he never dreamt of smelling the most wonderful scents of the most beautiful flowers on a meadow where smarties are growing everywhere . . . : )

    I don’t agree entirely with Jules Verne. Great photo!

    I think I have already recommended this book to you-
    It expands on what Verne was saying but not by seeing ‘facts’ but by being in awe of the sheer wonder of everything in the world :)
