Time Flies

monterey 7 25 14

Time flies when you are having fun. And, fun I had, up visiting my brother and sister-in-law, who live on the Monterey Peninsula, in Pacific Grove, CA.

beach side

I intentionally chose not to blog. I wanted to enjoy the time spent with family members, enjoying hiking, lighthouse touring, aquarium exhibits, eating, walking along the beach, laughing, and creating fun memories.

Sunday Scenes: February 2, 2014

Today, in the U.S., it is Groundhog Day! The groundhog saw its shadow, therefore we will have six additional weeks of winter.

For those who want to learn more about this tradition, visit here.

boulders and the sea

The sea is a feast for the eyes
as one beholds the garden of glory before us.
From boulders of black, tan, grey and brown
to mold and fungus vegetation, to bright wildflowers
the illumination of colors, textures and tones
brings immeasurable delight to the senses.

One can daydream the minutes and hours away
wrapped in a cocoon of nature’s brilliance,
in awe of the wondrous visuals before us.

Sea Floor


I have read over 1,500 book pages the past week. Those pages were within the covers of two books:

I read The Rise of David Levinsky.

I also read Norman Mailer: A Double Life.

I chose to read The Rise of David Levinsky for its depiction of late 19th century, and early 20th century New York’s garment industry. I thought it would be a fascinating subject, and it most definitely was. I will be reviewing it at some point.

There were some similarities between Levinsky and Mailer, as far as ambition, which I thought was interesting. Levinsky was an immigrant from Russia, and Mailer was an American, yet their ambitions were similar…the search for respect, recognition and power seems to have ruled both of them. I will be writing more on comparisons in the future.
You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.
-Mahatma Gandhi

We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch – we are going back from whence we came.
-John F. Kennedy

Sea and Sayings


We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch – we are going back from whence we came.
-John F. Kennedy

Love one another, but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.
