Reflection: What Comes to Mind?

I was leisurely walking around a quaint, beach town when the proximity of these two signs so close together caused me to come to a screeching halt. Muchmore Lane leads to a Dead End. Did anyone else get goosebumps? My meditation teacher mind began whirling with connections, comparisons, and extrapolations. I began drafting a meditation talk right on the spot! For those of you who enjoy the reflection process and turning inward as much as I do, I ask you the question I asked my students when they did reflection journals - What comes to mind when you look at this picture?

When my students were reflecting they would come up with a reasonable goal as to how many sentences would be deemed acceptable for each assignment. At the start of the school year we had multiple conversations about the difference between answering a question versus reflecting. I did, however, point out that reflecting can include asking questions too.
