exhilarating snippets of...

views / stuff seen in the course of a day!!!

These are moments that some sort of magic happens and I am lucky to have my camera near by...
These "views" are seen (and oh! so greatly appreciated), when I am in the "taking time to smell the roses" state of mind...  
What I call magic is really not magic at all! It's a whole bunch of things I am surrounded with, views belonging to my everyday landscape that at certain times just touch me in a very extraordinary way.
The sight of a tree's brunches hanging with moss and swaying in the autumn breeze (a rather  ordinary encounter for us living in the south), the huge creature standing still on my front door's frame, the sky ablaze with a show of light happening while I am stuck in traffic, the Beatles greeting me first thing yesterday morning when I opened my browser, looking as fresh and as exciting as I remember them aeons ago...
I am so happy I looked up and saw the Spanish moss glowing in the autumn sun, so glad I am not scared of unknown critters anymore, so thrilled I didn't let the aggravation from rush hour traffic stop me from smiling at the play of light and clouds, and finally I am so ecstatic I still remember how the Beatles made me feel...

Flowers from a friend

A few days ago a friend returned from a lengthy absence, came over for dinner and brought me the most beautiful tulips; this morning it looked like their pick was over and their decline was progressing at a rather accelerating speed. I had to somehow record their incredible beauty, as a reminder of my dearest Weihong's visit and symbol of her amazing precious presence in my life.

at home

on Halloween night!
Candles everywhere (nothing unusual about that...) and my no knead home baked bread on the table; just before dinner on Halloween night spent at home with good friends.
