Angry Sea

It seems that there is that connection between the sea and I. It doesn’t matter that I haven’t mastered the water and can not swim in it no matter how calm.

I feel free and feel so much joy it seems to bubble out from the bottom of my heart and seep through the deepest, darkest thoughts in my mind whenever I watch the waves and feel the ocean breeze caress my skin.

There is pleasure in the pathless woods, there is rapture in the lonely shore, there is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not Man the less, but Nature more. ~Lord Byron

When was the last time you spent a quiet moment just doing nothing – just sitting and looking at the sea, or watching the wind blowing the tree limbs, or waves rippling on a pond, a flickering candle or children playing in the park? ~Ralph Marston

On Friendship and Friends

On friendship and friends. In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed. ~Khalil Gibran

Pinto Art Museum

We love going to places that are not the usual places where people flock to. In other words, we’d rather go somewhere a bit far without the crowds and we avoid the malls at all costs unless we really need to buy something important.

This same philosophy applies to the education trips that my children go to. They’ve rappelled, zip-lined, waded and bathed in waterfalls and rivers, did spelunking and even had obstacle courses.

Anyway, the husband and I went to Pinto Art Museum last May and we had a wonderful time looking at the artworks displayed there. The place, which looks like a Mission Bell place is just great and you seem to be lost in time absorbing all the visual feast that touches the heart and soul.

Here are just some of the photos I have shared online. When I say few, I mean few because I took more than 600 photos while we were there for three hours. Hah.

My 800th Instagram photo: Pinto Art Museum.


Here is another one, an outdoor photo.

A photo of my husband in a contemplative mood, sitting on one of the boulders that is a part of the museum itself.
