Finally, I'm back with DSL! Because I missed Saturday's PhotoHunt, I thought I'd post a photo that I serendipitously captured two summers ago at a Cancer Walk. This is my friend's brother-in-law (does he resemble someone?) and her neice.

"Sooner or later we begin to understand that love is more than verses on valentines and romance in the movies. We begin to know that love is here and now, real and true, the most important thing in our lives. For love is the creator of our favourite memories and the foundation of our fondest dreams. Love is a promise that is always kept, a fortune that can never be spent, a seed that can flourish in even the most unlikely of places. And this radiance that never fades, this mysterious and magical joy, is the greatest treasure of all - one known only by those who love." -~Author Unknown

I WISH I could get this link to upload so it would be automatic. Sorry, but it's worth the effort to click on the link:

Sorry for not posting this week - having problems with DSL at home and still not up and working. And, I was hoping to feature Lilly, my adopted kitten...
Promise to be back into the hunt for photos next week, tho!

Never say Die -- Comeback Kids

Did I say I went to bed early and missed this great comeback? Did I say I was shrieking at my TV this morning to learn we are still alive? Did I say - you gotta believe?!

The suspense of this Red Sox team is getting my blood pressure up there - but it's all a good thing - yes, it's so good, so good ....

Any one in education knows, you are a part of one big family -- some times that's good, and some times that's bad! And, like families - we take it all - the good, the bad and the ugly...

"Youth is an organic intoxicant and stimulant. Just from being young, you already have a few shots in you."
J. R. Moehringer

To All My Friends and Loves: "I wish you enough"

'That's a wish that has been handed down from other generations.'

I wi sh you enough sun to keep your attitude bright no matter how gray the day may appear.
I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun even more.
I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive & everlasting.
I wish you enough pain so that even the smallest of joys in life may appear bigger.
I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.
I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.
I wish you enough hellos to get you through the final good-bye.

'When we said, 'I wish you enough,' we were wanting the other person to have a life filled with just enough good things to sustain them.'

I Will Meet You Yet Again

Mein tainu pher milan gi

I will meet you yet again. How and where? I know not. Perhaps I will become a figment of your imagination and maybe, spreading myself in a mysterious line on your canvas. I will keep gazing at you.

Perhaps I will become a ray of sunshine, to be embraced by your colours.I will paint myself on your canvas. I know not how and where –but I will meet you for sure.

Maybe I will turn into a spring and rub the foaming drops of water on your body, and rest my coolness on your burning chest.I know nothing else but that this life will walk along with me.
When the body perishes, all perishes; but the threads of memory are woven with enduring specks.
I will pick these particles, weave the threads, and I will meet you yet again.

PhotoHunt: Lazy

Hi all: Posting early to start a long holiday weekend.

Lazy, Hazy days of Summer - Hawaiian Style

Took this last year on Kauai's North Shore - I think this is Haena Beach.

Et Tu, Brute?

Yup, I was one who studied Latin and loved it! Unfortunately, after 4 years I realized I could really not do too much with a seemingly irrelevant language so I dropped it. Many years later, of course, realizing the benefit in assisting in emergency situations (while traveling and not knowing Italian) to have this Latin base and pull from a dimly-lit memory!

Now, come to find out – it’s ‘hip’ again to be square!


Who knew?

Wow! Glad I’m working in an appropriate career based on my astrological sign! And my office works with students to do an in-depth analysis of what they want to do, what the need is, and how their choice will affect their world and humanity. Who knew – all you had to do was check your astrological sign!

so good, so good, so good

So good -- So good -- So good..
Envision yourself at Fenway, singing Sweet Caroline! Ya baby! Sox win! Sox win! Sox win! Jason Bay has been a welcomed addition. Oh, to have a Sox vs. Dodgers playoff ..... envision, envision.

PhotoHunt: Sad

I took this photo while on the Cape this past summer visiting the
cemetery next to one of the oldest churches in Woods Hole. It was
actually taken over the 4th of July weekend. A few of us had attended
a classical concert at the church the evening before.

Wings and Roots and all those other things …

I have finally come to terms with the fact that daughter has indeed moved out and there’s a high probability that her room is not going to be ‘her’ room anymore – she’s been gone for 3 years.

Well, I first came to that reality last June when my fiancĂ© moved in and set up this room as his private haven. And, I guess after being in NYC for three years and now living together with her boyfriend, it’s a fact that my daughter identifies herself as a New Yorker (but still a Red Sox fan in ‘enemy’ territory).

So, last weekend I packed the remnants of her prior life in boxes – photos, yearbooks, prom gowns, journals. Among the items was a family history done by one of my sisters almost ten years ago, as a written history to be passed to the younger generation in the family. In thumbing through it, I was reminded at the enormity of the task and amazed at the precise care given to writing about historical facts and ancestors.

As mentioned before, my ancestors came from Avellino. To be exact, my dad’s parents were from Parolise and Candida; my mom’s from Rocco San Felicia. Coming from Italy to New York (and eventually to Boston) in 1898 and 1900 respectively.

One of our generations will get to visit these areas. I’ve been close ….

Sorry all you Angels fans (and Mets)

Game 1 - SOX!

Quote for a lazy midweek day..Wednesday

Sometimes I think I understand everything, and then I regain consciousness.
