Bridge Over River

We build too many walls and not enough bridges. -Isaac Newton

Bridges are happy, because they do not judge those who come to them. -Mehmet Murat ildan

Sometimes, if you stand on the bottom rail of a bridge and lean over to watch the river slipping slowly away beneath you, you will suddenly know everything there is to be known.A. A. Milne

Thank you for visiting. I hope all is well with you.

Flowers and Books, Such Joy!

I took a four photos of two types of flowers, the hibiscus, and the sunflower.

The dark pink hibiscus, above, is from my neighbor’s garden. You can see the sprinkles of pollen on the petals.

I really liked the lacy look to this hibiscus. I love how delicate it looked, even though the flowers are very hardy. I also loved the various tones within the petals, ranging from almost white to stages of pink.

Look at this aging beauty! She is wrinkled, and her skin is coarser in spots. She has been a delight for the neighborhood bees and other insects. They have stripped her dry, so to speak.

These two captures are also from a neighbor’s garden, the lovely sunflower, who has been a feast for the bees. Her flavors have been enjoyed, as you can see.

Books recently read:

Egypt’s Sister: A Novel of Cleopatra. I give this book three stars out of five.

Day Hikes in Washington State, 90 Favorite Trails, Loops, and Summit Scrambles. I give this book five stars!

The Soul of a Woman. I give this book five stars.

Dubin’s Lives. I am in the process of reading this.

The Secret Book of Kings. I am currently reading this.

Thank you for visiting. Have a lovely day/evening. -Lorri

What Do You See?

Clouds always amaze me. Their beauty is illuminating, along with the vision/s I might see within them.

I love what I saw in this cloud. I turned my head sideways, and the image had me smiling.

Cloud art intrigues and amazes me!

I wish all of you a good week.

Sunset, Shabbat

It is Friday morning, which means Shabbat begins at sunset tonight.

Here are four photos taken last night, during sunset.

The first two looked somewhat ominous with those dark clouds. Then within seconds, the clouds moved on, and the illuminations that remained were pastel-toned beauties, with soft grey tones within the pinks and lavenders.
I appreciate all of nature’s sky scenes, darkness, lightness, sunsets, and sunrises. Sunsets appear distinctly different each day, and so do sunrises.

I wish all of you peace and joy this weekend. For those who celebrate, Shabbat Shalom!

Textures, Layers

I enjoyed coming upon this scene, the deteriorating architecture with its many textures and layers.

One could compare the setting to be an analogy of our own life, which is also filled with many textures and layers. Each minute creates new illuminations of our physical being, our landscape through which we grow, mature, learn from lessons that might not have been successful.

But, then, what is successful to one person, is another person’s success, through failed attempts, but within those attempts we learn what path to continue on, and our textures become survival layers. I dislike using ‘failed attempts’, and rather see the attempts to be negative aspects from which positivity blooms.

We all, and I do mean ‘all’, have gone through issues that we have overcome. Do not let any negativity hold you back from moving forward, and building new layers, from the textures of life.

Shabbat Shalom to those who celebrate. Everyone, I hope you have a lovely weekend. -Lorri
