No, this isn't the water feature we were planning on adding to our deck area this summer. Haha! That was a good one. It's a small pond nestled in the inner courtyard at the Portland Harbor Hotel. It's one of our favorite places to relax and unwind on a warm sunny day. On Wednesday, Elenka's last day, it was the perfect place to meet up with Marchin, Donna, Yelena and Justin and celebrate the conclusion of a fabulous career. This simple figure off to the center of the pool always recalls one of my favorite Greek myths: the young Narcissus. The young boy who knelt by a pool of water and was so enthralled by what he saw mirrored back at him that he fell in love with his own reflection. I've read a few of translations of the story, but my favorite, by far, is the wonderful tale that Edith Hamilton unwinds.
This myth must be a Kadashian family favorite.
