Weekly photo challenge: Refraction

Refraction noun: 1. Physics. The change of direction of a ray of light, sound, heat, or the like, in passing obliquely from one medium into another in which its wave velocity is different.  Refraction makes me think of relationships – the change of direction that can occur when one person (a ray of light) passes through a medium (a […]

Fortunately, I can be […]
