This is the essence of serenity and happiness.

The Falls replace the business card place holder with something a little more to their liking.

The following is taken directly from Tara's Blog ( http://findingstrengthtostandagain.wordpress.com/ ) that touched me very deeply and puts into words the connection that her and her family have created with Silhouette Bay

I have this picture in my house.  This piece was created by the Australian born artist Pete Tillack.  Please take time to see his other incredible work at http://www.petetillack.com/index.html It is an amazing piece of art.  I think it is one of the best I have ever seen.  How do I know this?  How can I define it as "the best"?  Because I cannot tell you what it looks like.  In order to describe anything besides the fact that it uses a very nice shade of blue and has a water scene, I need this picture directly in front of me.  Otherwise, I cannot tell you anything about the picture.  Yet, every time I see it, I am awed by the beauty it captures.

And no, this picture is not new to my home.  I was in love with it from the moment I first saw it at an art walk in Little Italy in 2009.  After we purchased it, I spent evenings dancing to "Sitting on the Dock of the Bay" with my daughters beneath this picture.  When we moved to our new house, I picked the shade of blue paint on my walls just to match this painting and devoted an entire wall to paint an area especially designed to frame "Silhouette Bay".  I have spent hours and hours looking at this painting.  Yet, when I step away from it, I cannot begin to tell you what is in this picture besides water and calming blue paint.

Still, every time I see it I feel a slight sense of recognition and an amazing awe over its beauty.  For me, that explains why I feel it is the most beautiful picture ever created.  To see something for the first time every time and still have it strike me as magically beautiful is a true definition of beauty.  I no longer have a visual memory.  I cannot hold details of images within my mind.  Maybe it is linked to prosopagnosia.  Maybe it is something deeper within my brain.  Regardless, I am fortunate to have my daughters' beautiful smiles to see each day.  I consider myself lucky to continually discover the splendor view of the mountains we live near.  I am forever grateful for the unexpected sights of beauty that capture my attention on a daily basis.

I see all of these images as if for the first time every time I see them.  For this reason, I am blessed to be surrounded by such amazing pictures that no longer can hold 1,000 words for me.  Rather, with each time I see this picture, a child's smile or the snow-capped mountains, I am filled with a thrill that amazing beauty can exist so close to me.  No, pictures no longer can tell a story I will later recall, but I am fortunate that each time I see the beautiful things surrounding me I can observe, with new-found delight, the beauty which they possess.
