Another Canal Reflection
When you look into the canal, you see its surface, its bottom, the sky, the upside down trees from the other side, and the plants on the near side. Sometimes you see turtles with tiny heads sticking out of the water and their carapaced bodies below the water slightly out of alignment, or geese floating like British men o' war, with their legs churning below the surface. Whether the sun shines or not, there's always flickering light and shadow. This morning I saw two people sitting in chairs fishing. They weren't working very hard at it, maybe mesmerized by staring into the canal.
