Weekly Photo Challenge: Evanescent

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA A Memory: I shall always remember that moment… that view, as I leaned against the railing of the vaparetto which would ferry Lynda and I to the train station. A soft ribbon of pink on the horizon reflected on the choppy water’s crests providing bits of light to early morning toilers. We were not discomforted by the gentle, rhythmic, pitter-pattering rain that peppered our faces, so entrenched we were, lost in our own silent farewell to Venice. I doubt whether I’ll see Venice again as I have many adventures in queue, but I have this memory, evanescent as it may be. 

Daily Gratitude: watching several butterfies fitting in the garden; seeing the waves crashing along dog beach (wish I had my camera); spending time working on a mosaic listening to my playlist

Quote of the Day: Friendship is evanescent in every man’s experience, and remembered like heat lightening in past summers. ~Henry David Thoreau

Weekly Photo Challenge: Heritage

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The first laces of Burano, Italy, date back to the 1500s. There is a long history of lace making and schooling of lace in Burano that is a heritage that had been revived in 1978 when the Burano Lace Museum was established. Their methods for making lace is still the same today and peering into the back of any of the lace shops in Burano, one can see these lovely ladies hunched over their pillows, hard at work. It is remarkable to see the lacemakers working their fine art with such nimble fingers–I was in awe.

Daily Gratitude: a day on the beach with a nice bay breeze; a stroll in my garden to see who is offering up their blossoms to for me to view; seeing my first black swallowtail in search of nectar

Quote of the Day: He who denies his heritage, has no heritage. ~Khalil Gibran

Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflecting

Weekly Photo Challenge: Danger

fullsizeoutput_73e

To the daily news headlines, I think, “NO, Nein, Iie, Aniyo, Bu Shi, Nao!”

Daily Gratitude: chocolate chip pancakes; heavy rains for my garden; a day of watching Downton Abbey and painting

Quote of the Day: (Apropos) I dread the events of the future, not in themselves, but in their results. I shudder at the thought of any, even the most trivial, incident, which may operate upon this intolerable agitation of soul. I have, indeed, no abhorrence of danger, except in its absolute effect—in terror. ~Edgar Allen Poe

There was a light rain most of the morning, but this view dispelled any negative thoughts we may have had about the weather. (Grand Canyon, view from the South Kaibob Trail)

Daily Gratitude: spending several hours working on a mosaic; finding a bird nest in my coral honeysuckle; a hint of sunshine

Weekly Photo Challenge: Surprise

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

While hiking in the woods looking for ferns, I was surprised to see this leaf seemingly suspended in mid-air only to find on closer inspection, that it was caught on a spider’s thread.

Daily Gratitude: sun coming out this afternoon; only twelve more hours to get the garden ready; looking forward to seeing Billy Crystal tomorrow night

Quote of the Day: It’s a great thing when you realize you still have the ability to surprise yourself. Makes you wonder what else you can do that you’ve forgotten about. ~Alan Ball, American Beauty, 1999
