Good thoughts expressed--but my answers would only detract from the goodness.

Aloha Cloudia, beautiful plants and a cute reflection capture. I always enjoy your wise quotes. Thanks for sharing, great fence shot. Happy Thursday!

I love the first photo and the quote is great as well.

It is an interesting Wilde quote - what we choose to hide behind is obviously important to us, and what we want to project tells us who we want to be, maybe hides our insecurities - I wonder at the motive of the mask (but then again, I wear one.)

Aloha from the Unknown

The fear of the unknown has a familiar ring to me. I'll work on it.

The grass is greener on the other side of that fence, Cloudia! ;-))

You have got me thinking. Again. Thank you.
I do fear uncertainty - but step forward anyway. And do often discover that the fence conceals beauty.
