I hear you speak
waves tumble half a world away

conch’s song heard in the waves
answer blowin’ in the wind

Because of an overlap

in the Gregorian and Jewish calendars,

Hanukkah and Thanksgiving

have collided for the first time

since 1888.  It won’t happen again

for thousands of years, so it has

been calculated.

.

I give THANKS for all of you that support

and encourage me through my blog and facebook.

As someone who is elderly and lives alone,

it means a lot to me to know that friends

are just a “click” away.

.

Happy Hanukkah to those celebrating during

the coming week. 

.

Bless you and keep you in Love and Peace.

Home to more than 236 types of birds…

Red Beach, Panjin, China

Red Beach is located in the Liaohe River Delta,

about 30 kilometers southwest of Panjin City in China.

The beach’s unique color is caused by a type of plant

called Suaeda vera or Shrubby Sea-blite 

which is a coastal species that flourishes in the saline-alkali soil.

The plant remains green during the summer but in the fall,

 when the plant has matured, it takes on a deep red color

creating a stunning red sea landscape.

Most of Red Beach is a nature reserve and closed to the public.

Only a small, remote section is open to tourists.

Natures Wonder
.
Red Beach, Pajin, China
a magical scene
at first sight
that could be anywhere
in the world ~
a sea of flowers
blueberry fields in winter
in Maine
.
a joyful scene
full of life
the 236 types of birds,
the stunning blue sky,
and
the immediate questions:
wanting to know
where it is
and how do I get
there NOW
.
a protected scene
guarded for the future
generations ~
for it is NOT just anywhere,
but a protected preserve
for plants and wildlife
A special unique
creation of nature
A special treat
for all the senses
to rejoice in.
.
And when I look
at fields of red
I will remember
this crowning jewel
of nature
giving thanks
it will be treasured
for all generations
to come
.

You are among toads

“Think as I think,” said a man,
“or you are abominably wicked; you are a toad.”
And after I thought of it,
I said,
“I will, then, be a toad.” ~ Stephen Crane
