    Hey Phyllis,

    What a sumptuous and vibrant photograph 🙂 And how fortunate you were to have spent time gazing out upon its emerald magnificence!

    The symbolism innate to mountains is rich with metaphor and meaning, as too the emerald colouring…both of which form a comfortable partnership and union as they rise together towards the heavens.

    Curiously, or curious and more curious, is that I was reminded of the Green Hill far, far away, which appeared to Alice in her perambulating journey to never get any closer until after she had met the Queen of Hearts. Up until then her pathway was occluded by her own Wonder-land.

    I am also very taken with the Einstein quote: these words from a human being of exceptional intellect, gifted with near absolute deductive reasoning and intuition…to have a flexible mind sufficiently equipped to compress the workings of the Universe into symbolic form goes beyond inspiring. Such ability is rare of course, but it whispers of the potential nature of humankind’s intellectual prowess when reaching for the unfathomable and being rewarded with illumination. It also adds weight and buoyancy to the belief that God created humankind so as to be able to gaze out upon the wonder of his/her creation through his/her own eyes.

    Ummm- I could float for an afternoon on a pillow of your beautiful verbosity!! I agree with your take on God’s perspective – We are God’s ‘experiencers’. That’s pretty simple.

      Hey Phyllis,

      Why thank you…I do so enjoy a witty, charming and generously considerate retort 😉

      I must say, I’m very taken with the word ‘experiencer’ and have tucked it away for future use. But tell me…why do we invent so many words if they can’t all be used at least once in this life-time? Nay…if they can’t all be used at least once in the comments section of your Blog in one sitting lol 🙂

      You may be interested to know that you share the same first name with that of my late grandmother. It seems to be a name most relevant to this specific post primarily because of its etymological meaning, and I wonder if you have ever had chance to consider its interpretation…

      ~ Word Origin and History for Phyl-lis: Fem. proper name, generic proper name for a comely rustic maiden in pastoral poetry (1630s), from Latin Phyllis, a girl’s name in Virgil, Horace, etc., from Greek Phyllis, female name, literally “foliage of a tree,” from phyllon leaf,” from PIE *bholyo- “leaf,” from root *bhel- (3) “to thrive, bloom,” possibly identical with *bhel- (2) “to blow, inflate, swell” (see bole ). In English, often spelled Phillis, probably from influence of phil- “loving.” Her sweetheart usually was Philander. In addition: people with this name have a deep inner desire to serve humanity and to give to others by sharing money, knowledge and experience, or creative and artistic ability. This name tends to be idealistic, highly imaginative, intuitive, and spiritual. They seek after spiritual truth and often find it. They tend to be visionary and may inspire others.

      Would you agree with any aspects of the above? I find it uncannily descriptive of the general characteristics and outlook of my grandmother: she was a fine, strong woman and tenderly compassionate. I imagine it is from her that I find a sense of personal release in spending time dreaming.

      I’d be absolutely fascinated to hear of your Ecuadorian adventure, and already feel teased by the snippets included in your second comment! It sounds like quite an experience! 🙂

      I trust you will enjoy your reflective Sun-day Phyllis and venture forth into a new week with inspired purpose and deliberate intent. I’ll look forward to your next post.

      Until then, take care.

    I’m inspired now to write a story of bus travels through Ecuador (nothing like midnight in a crowded bus, with a burning tire, on a muddy rainforest mountaintop).
