Watching the 2016 Olympics on television
as I have all the Olympics since I have had a television
I think this is the most amazing cauldron and flame
in my memory,
I watch for it to come on the screen and pause what I am
doing to watch it swirl in all its beauty and grace.
spirals in motion
pulsing energy and light
peace, unity and friendship.

Small water lily pond Deer Isle, Maine, USA
This lily pond I found turning the car around pulling into the
large space next to the road…it is at the bottom of two steep
hills and when driving, attention is paid to the road, not the
surprises beside it. It now is a “must stop” .. always something
of beauty there in and out of lily season.

the rock never wavers

summer time
sea creatures lure
tourists play
lobsters scatter ~ others pose
fishy questions galore
The Penobscot East Resource Center
in Stonington, Maine, has a wonderful
interactive room including a touch tank
filled with sea creatures including a
rare albino (actually sort of light blue)
lobster. Catching a white lobster
is a rare occurrence – only 1 in 100,000,000 !!
I did get “selfie” of the lobster in my hand
to mark the day.
