Rain Rain Rain

After two days of practically non-stop dreary, dank, wet weather, I’m reminded of how beautiful the rain forest is in Costa Rica. At least it didn’t thunder. And look at the results! Lush magnificence!

Now this could very well be the result of my sneezing and watery eyes, but who cares! Beauty is all I care about, especially on a dreary, damp Monday morning.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Yellow

Stained Glass

A piece of a stained glass window that belonged to my mom shows what yellow means to me: a vibrant color representing strength and light, which negate all the drab grey colors of life, death, and grief. My mom was such a vibrant and strong woman, yellow is her soul. Shine on, mama.

The Path

There’s always something magical about walking a path in the woods, you never know what’s up ahead. Beauty certainly!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Twinkle

(Two images) Our last night in Costa Rica, we stayed way up in the mountains, and we feasted at this restaurant overlooking the twinkling lights of San Jose. The top image, although technically out of focus, was my attempt to create an “artsy fartsy” shot of the lights, which looks like twinkling bokeh to me. The bottom image shows the twinkle of the city. Pura Vida!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Gone, But Not Forgotten

Takeoff

When the space shuttle system was retired, some thought that NASA’s mission would die. But die it did not. Although none of the shuttles fly anymore, and Atlantis is now home at Kennedy Space Center, NASA’s mission does indeed continue. Today’s epic launch of the #Orion-EFT1 starts a new chapter into our exploration of space. Who knows, maybe my child or his, will be one of the first to explore Mars in person. So Atlantis might be gone, but she certainly is not forgotten. Here she is launching into our sky, mission STS-132, on May 14, 2010. (I still get goosebumps!)
