A Matter of Perspective (048/365)

"We live in illusion and the appearance of things. There is a reality. We are that reality. When you understand this, you see that you are nothing, and being nothing, you are everything. That is all.”

Kyabje Kalu Rinpoche (Buddhist meditation master, scholar and teacher, 1905-1989)

TIME: 6:15 PM
PLACE: County Courthouse
SUBJECT: Looking down from the 5th floor

I set up a field trip for our Cub Scout Pack at the County Courthouse tonight. Our State Representative came and spoke to the boys about state government and local history. He gave each boy a book of Illinois government, a map of Illinois and a pin. The trip counted as a "Go See It" for our Tigers, and fulfilled an achievement requirement for our Wolves, Webelos Ones and Twos. Our State Rep. made it very interesting and informative. Afterward, HH, the kids, a good friend and I went to a local Mexican restaurant. A couple of margaritas, some tacos, tamales, chili, sopaipilla and Ice creams were ordered and consumed. All in all a very nice evening.

VERY cool shot, I love the everything about it - the angle, the textures and the b&w.
