A walk in the park, healing water

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.
I was drawn to the gurgling gentleness of its flow, or the reflections in the quiet water. Life slowing down. 
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.
