“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.”

- F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

Seeing Double

"It's on the strength of observation and reflection that one finds a way. The light constantly changes and that alters the atmosphere and beauty of things every minute." - Claude Monet

Keeping Things in Perspective

September 23, 2017 (266/365)

"Conversation about the weather is the last refuge of the unimaginative." - Oscar Wilde

Yet, maybe it's not a matter of imagination, but instead the need for a little perspective. Over 90º in late September is not ideal, but at least, we're safe from hurricanes, forest fires, and earthquakes. 

Drinking in the Sunshine

May 3, 2017 (123/365)

“In the morning I drink a glass of sunshine to brighten my heart.” -  Debasish Mridha

After almost a week of cold, dreary days, I'll have an extra large glass -- Cheers!

"One cannot endure to waste anything as precious as autumn sunshine" - Nathaniel Hawthorne. This week, the days are regrettably shorter, but filled with blue skies, abundant sunshine, calm winds, and mild temperatures - what a gift to welcome November!
