Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror
~ Kahlil Gibran ~
Although not yet sealed, my mirror is now ready to show itself to the world!
I found it quite difficult to photograph, but decided the best approach would be to carry it around my garden and position it in different spots and at different angles. The idea I had in doing this was to try and discover the best way to present it, so that not only the mosaic edging would be visible, but that the mirror itself would pick up various reflections to enchant and entertain.

My daughter and I did the mosaic workshop together. She made a sign with the number of her townhouse on it.

Serve others for they are reflections of the same Entity of which you are yourself another reflection. No one of you has any authenticity, except in reference to the Original. Feel always kinship with all creation.
