Contemplations ...

... are different viewings that make my day. It can be sights that make me wonder… or moments I experience which make me very happy or satisfied. 

I am delighted by everyday small wonders - for example raindrops on a leaf or the magic light in a morning fog.

I love the sunrise .... and I like the moon - among others ;o)  I also like winter with it's white and quiet mornings ..... and I like the great variety of colours around us - it's all for free !

 

 The art of being happy lies simplifying ones pleasures ...

 

 

I love gardening - it gives me pleasure, rekreation and room for contemplation ....here is a "simple" Hosta after a rainshower. Art made by nature it self ..................

(read more below ...)

 

The Atomium, Brussels, originally built for Expo '58, the 1958 Brussels World's Fair. Designed by André Waterkeyn, it stands 102 metres (335 ft) tall. It has nine steel spheres connected so that the whole forms the shape of a unit cell of an iron crystal magnified 165 billion times.

Tubes connect the spheres along the 12 edges of the cube and all eight vertices to the centre. They enclose escalators connecting the spheres containing exhibit halls and other public spaces. The top sphere provides a panoramic view of Brussels. Each sphere is 18 metres in diameter. (Wikipedia)
