Wise warning - but I still like walking through puddles, given the chance!

Oh yes, indeed. Things are nearly always never as they seem.

I love your illusions of dangerous puddle stepping, Kathe. Thank you for the oh so kind safety alert. =D

I have to tell all of you that I studied that image for some time because something was off - well duh- It's Escher! The footprints appear to me to be all made by the right foot- both coming and going....so is that person hopping or what? Hence my little poem.
