This week’s photo challenge: share a symbol with us, and tell us what it means to you.
The courtyard in the Nasrid Palace of the Alhambra in Granada, Spain is a symbol of paradise. For me it is the paradise of the physical world interwoven with and expressive of the paradise of a soul incarnate. The enclosed garden provides coolness and refuge from the summer heat and bustle. This is a place where life bursts the confines of man-made geometric designs. The music of falling water, to me, is a celebration of life in the physical world, while the silence of the space represents the potency of a Presence which seeks expression.
