Spring, when the bough with unsightly painful scars,
that autumn caused and winter could never heal
gathers courage to dream again,
of new beginnings and happy endings
with the warmth of April and a renewed zeal.
Spring – a chance to start over
One of those quiet evenings where I got to enjoy a beautiful sunset, and relive some childhood memories – stone skipping at the Herring Cove Beach, Cape Cod.
The splashing of water as the stones kissed the surface of water was ephemeral, so was the distant sunset and so were the zillion ripples that dance to the tune of the breeze and so is everything else. Everything probably is ephemeral, it all depends on what “a short time” means to you, could be a second, an hour, a day, a week, a month, a year, a century….or beyond.

Sharing some crunchy fresh strawberries and magnolia bud getting ready for spring
( only if I could share the taste of those juicy strawberries and the scent of magnolia which fills up the air, with the same ease – because freshness is not just about what you see, it’s an experience :) )
The seasons and Orange Photo Challenge
The Spring Orange : Tulips
The Summer Orange : A cool cocktail
The Autumn Orange : Pumpkins (Well actually a lot more than just pumpkins, autumn is orange isn’t it ;))
The Winter Orange : Winter does not really have orange so to say, but for the remnants of autumn on this solitary branch.
Three amazing birds and the Rule of Thirds
A sparrow, a gull and a Canada goose….birds bold and adaptable, that keep us company all through the year, through the cold winter and the hot summer.
My favorite are the sparrows though, small and cute, hopping around lawns and balconies. They live in peace adding a little chirpy song to the early mornings, idle afternoons and serene evenings.
(as opposed to the Canada geese, that can get aggressive when threatened, and sea gulls that can literally snatch your food from your hands when hungry)

Probably Niagara Falls (NY) is more a symbol of height than depth, but I realized that height and depth are the same thing, just from different observation points. :)
