Map

A couple years ago I spent some time in Sedona Arizona. Along with Santorini and Maui it was one of the coolest places I had ever been. It’s hard to put a name on this feeling. I found myself emersed in the energy and craving quiet. The light, and the sunsets in this place felt curative. Every now and then I still wonder…”what was that!?”

mesmerizing lure

a deep feeling of well being –

in red rock country

this glow infused my spirit

defying definition

Nearly Spring

effects
This winter felt like a misnomer for most of the time. It has been marked with extraordinarily picturesque skies. Everytime I turned my camera skyward there was that little voice. Nature reminding me that at the very heart of such beauty, may be global warming.

As spring creeps in, I keep waiting for the charm of a proper snowfall. This unseasonably warm winter  seem to have fooled no one but me. The young leaves of the butterfly bush takes a stand. They look sturdy and healthy. They’re not going anywhere, despite their encounter with a transient snowfall. They’ve suffered no harm.

spring comes alive
plant pots at the garden’s edge
wore winter like clutter

Off The Pier

Yeap! Honest to goodness alternate way of fishing witnessed off the pier in my neighborhood this Sunday evening.

The only other place I have ever seen this type of fishing was in the Mediterranean!!

Hope your Sunday was as delightful as mine:)
