Ponds have a way of making me ponder about many things in life. Maybe because they capture reflections of the surroundings, yet also hold water that in turn hold many things within. Monet’s perspective and tedious efforts in capturing these qualities have left an indelible impression on me, and always lift me off into another world of contemplation in front of any pond.

Maybe that is why temples always have ponds for people to ponder the ephemerality of life and moments in life; to enjoy the beauty while also recognising the murkiness within that have settled in the moment.
