When up is down~

Doesn’t sometimes seem absolutely mind boggling that we actually walk, talk, eat and sleep on a huge ball? And it’s spinning so fast around its axis! And it’s whirling at a stunning speed around the sun! And is part of a galaxy that’s wizzing inside space to god knows where! How can anyone be ever bored knowing this??

Day 81 of 365~

Carnival~ Karneval~ Fasching~ Mardi Gras

It all began and is rooted in the Carnevalle of Venice with its masked balls and elaborate costumes, now these festivities are observed religiously in different parts of Germany, Switzerland, France, New Orleans, and other places. A day to dress up and scare away the devil, one would hope.

Preparations began on 11/11 at 11:11 am and the are about to culminate with this weekend’s parades and Rose Monday’s big event.

I do hope the political satire floats of Duesseldorf’s Monday parade will scare off a certain orange headed imposter sitting in the White House.

Day 38 of 365~

Day Fourteen, February 5, 2011

Remember when life was so simple...?

Today we went back to that same stretch of beach at sunset, the most magical time of day besides dawn.

I watched these two local boys playing with a ball and a t-shirt for the longest time, making up games and running around the blue waters without a care in the world. I so wish sometimes that more and more people can live in this state of being in the moment fully and completely.
