Today has been a day when the word Understand has been playing over and over in my mind. It all started when I playfully said to puppy Stan “You’re the Stan in ‘Understand” on a walk a while after I found him chewing his way through a hardback book of poetry from Ireland called A Fine Statement. (I’d have been raging with any other animal or person who had torn the book to shreds, but I blamed myself for leaving it within his reach and also admired his taste in poetry!)
But what about Understand? What does it mean; what can it mean?
Here’s my latest effort at defining it:Undress Nakedness Deep Empathy Respect; Soulmates Talk Animatedly Nurturing Discoveries
And in case you’re wondering about the photograph of the leaf which I took in Mount Congreve yesterday, it made me think of the much loved hands of my late Mother, who adored trees, as she grew more and more fragile, yet ever more insightful and understanding.

Beautiful and meaningful post my friend!
Thanks so much, BMT.
You are always most welcome. Hugs
Sounds like the chose that book on purpose, responding to “You’re the Stand in Understand.” So he replied, “A Fine Statement.”
Very clever, Sandy!
I’ve always had my doubts about ‘coffee table’ books, like this one as I’m not a coffee table type but I love it when people turn the tables on me.
What a beautiful photograph, and its matching comparison. I love how you can take the simplest of subjects and make them complex, the simplest of photographic subjects and make them leap out at you.
Thanks Suz! Such a lovely comment.
Well done SB.
Thanks very much, Paul.
Understanding ……….. you have it in spades. ❤
Thanks Willow 😍.
I agree with Suz… you do have a knack for choosing a simple word and creating a discussion! Love this!
