PhotoHunt: Metal

OK-I'm cheating - it's not really Saturday, it's Friday (at least I think it is - problem with long holiday weekends - not complaining tho) 8 PM EST.

This is taken from the Pan Mass Challenge cycled every summer by survivors and contributors to the Jimmy Fund (a local Boston charity whose focus is 'fighting' cancer). It's actually a photo of the spoke of my friend's bike. She has been cancer-free for 3 years and has become an inspirational voice for many dealing with this disease.

So, my contribution to 'metal' .. both in spirit and in physicality.

Dance like there is no tomorrow ...

Dance, when you're broken open.
Dance, if you've torn the bandage off.
Dance in the middle of the fighting.
Dance in your blood.
Dance, when you're perfectly free.

PhotoHunt: Ruin(ed)

Thanks, Girasoli

Found this link:
On G's blog:

The Grand Wailea is probably my second love of Hawaii (!) -- If you ever have a chance to visit this property, please do so. Not sure which is best - the art, the sculpture, the scenery, the chapel, the warm aloha greetings, the drinks at the open air bar, the food .... all 'shaka'!

This is just one of the many beautiful stained glass windows in the wedding chapel which is located in an opening on the property. The windows are naturally backlit by the sun's reflection off the ocean's water. Just breathtaking.

PhotoHunt: Together

This photo was taken during a family reunion two years ago, July 4. One hand belongs to my son, who is meeting his second cousin, Aiden, for the first time since Aiden's birth eight years ago.
Family get-togethers are a blessing!

A comforting thought for a dismal Thursday

We must remember that liberation is costly.
It needs unity.
We must hold hands and refuse to be divided.
Let us be united, let us be filled with hope,
let us be those who respect one another.
~Desmond Tutu

Photo Hunt: Blue

Ok-Sorry seems to be a common word on this blog. Sorry, that I'm late once again posting my Photo Hunt photo. May be Verizon will be more on top of things :!

Anyway, my blue photo is a typical flower from a common bush at Cape Cod - the hydrangea. There are many types of hydrangea - and many colors depending on the acidity of the soil. Sometimes people say that the salt air becomes factor in coloration -but scientifically, not so sad to say.

This past summer I was treating the soil around one hydrangea to change the colors from a vibrant pink to a purplish-blue. My niece's son was assisting me by ranking the soil. He asked if adding acid to the soil would change any flower - not just a hydrangea. Of course, with my teacher's training, I insisted he use the inquiry and experiment method - to find out for himself. ... So Tim -- what do you say?
