John Archibald Wheeler said, ”We live on an island surrounded by a sea of ignorance. As our island of knowledge grows, so does the shore of our ignorance.”

Makes me wonder if he spent much time standing by the sea. As I view this image it occurs to me that waves are still lapping their way to shore at this very moment. Do you ever think about things like that?

A beautiful image of sea and shore. I agree with you. Ignorance keeps making inroads in our culture just as the sea forever sends waves at the shore.

nice off-center composition and interesting wood shapes created by the exposed roots and fallen branches.
yes, knowing what you don’t know is as important as knowledge

Kinda like when there’s a sound in the forest when a tree falls? YES, I do, Sherri. I love soulful scenes like this that stay in my mind’s eye.

Yes, I do. I really like this picture, and can imagine it changing with the weather and the size of the seas

The beach is a canvas that is wiped clean twice a day and a great place to clear the mind. Nicely composed

NO matter how much we know, there is so much more to learn. Beautifully illustrated here.

What I really like is how the shapes of the clouds repeat those of the trees. A very poignant quote by John Archibald Wheeler.

A beautiful image of the sea. I do think that things just keep going on even though we are not there.
