Spring Creek which flows through Martin Park in OKC is a primary source of life for the wildlife and fauna within this urban sanctuary, making it a sanctuary for humans also.

And then, reminded of how fleeting our lives are, and insignificant compared to Nature, I caught my shadow looking down from a bluff over the creek. Life as fleeting as our shadows.
