Before the melt

Guess what? The ice has melted!

But only a few days ago, it lay thick

Under a blanket of fluffy clouds.


Ruby loves jumping on stuff and posing —

And I love taking snaps of her when she does.

On sunlit wing

I love the way the sunlight

Can turn a gull’s wings

Into luminous ballet tutus.

It’s how I imagine the wings of angels look.

I’m away filming with work this week, so will not be able to visit or comment on your blogs.

Blue sky with side orders

Thank you for your best wishes about my dad’s health. Recovery will be slow, but at least it’s going in the right direction.

It was mild when I was in England, so now I present:

Blue sky with a side order of…

Palm tree (outside my parents’ house);

Palm tree

Love birds on antennas


And street lamp with reflection.

Let’s spare a kind word and smile — or extend an invitation — to those feeling alone or depressed during this holiday season.

On top of the world

I arrived back from New York this morning.
(So please excuse me for not getting around to visit you yet…)

One of the highlights of my visit – apart from all the wonderful people I met –

Was a trip up to the Top of the Rock (Rockefeller Centre)

Where blue sky seems to bow down and kiss you.

As we reached the observation deck on the 67th floor,

The sun created the perfect canopy for the Empire State Building.

Going up two more levels

Gave breathtaking views of New York floating in a haze of sunbeams.

Sipping from the cup of sunlight

At last!

The spring sun made the buds shine like pearls

In the pure blue of the sky

And turned the tulips into bowls of sunshine.


“The sun admitted…

I wish I could show you,
When you are lonely or in darkness,

The astonishing Light

Of your own Being!” — Hafiz

Merry sky

We’ve had a spate of white skies and snowstorms recently; but now and then, the sun bursts through in a wonderful explosion of blue and white.

This picture raised my spirits and I set it as my desktop picture so that I smiled every time I sat down at my computer.

Now you can do the same, if you wish.
