Blogging 'Round the Globe (Linking to SkyWatch)

An amazing, almost miraculous thing happened around here today. The sun came out for the first time in six days of rain.

  1. Wow! That's one truly inspiring shot! Be aware that Amsterdam does not have such views...I'll be more than happy to show you around when you come over this summer. Providing I'm in town of course..

    Have a good weekend!

    Kind regards,
    Terrence (http://terrebelius.blogspot.com)

    PS Thank you for your kind comment on my blogpost.

  2. We had that miracle in Connecticut, too. Some turtles hatched themselves to honor the moment.

  4. hello, darling...finally am online on husbands...my dumb laptop quit tonight just as i was trying to comment on my own blog to my comments, like from you...sigh... i have no idea what's wrong with my computer but sure hope they can figure out how to fix it as i cannot afford to buy another just now... lovely photo here, 6 days of rain is definitely grounds for suicide in my book, i suffer from SAD so no way does that float my boat... no errant pun intended. :)

    i hoped you might be feeling a bit better...i know you have not been doing so well...as for movies, i am not one for them-very low tolerance for sitting too long in front of a movie/tv screen but did know of the girl with the pearl earring, i loved that and HIM and the piano...how could i forget that one? i also adored the king's speech but really i don't think there's much that man makes i don't love as well as helena... well, excepting alice perhaps.

    must go to bed...but did want to say thank you for your kind words... it was not my intent to leave anyone with the feeling they were somehow inadequate because meditation was not their cuppa so hope that was not how you felt....perhaps i just "heard" your words through my own insecurities, i have not shared my private practices in Buddhism before because they are esoteric and poorly understood due to a lack of good teachers. sadly enough.... you are not far from Pema Chodren up there tho, right? ...you and susan should make a weekend of it... i admit i have no idea of geography and might be talking about hours and days of driving!!

    be well, my friend...or well as can be expected-summer is coming, i'm told. it's freezing here tonight too, the weather is just weird this season. already we are worrying over our grape crop...again!

    Jams - that's not laundry! :-D Tibetan prayer flags.

  8. Linda! Oh, you didn't make me feel inadequate in regard to the meditation! I AM inadequate and it's not because of anything other than that I don't make time for it enough and never get good at it. That is what I should have said but I too was tired last night as I am always on Friday evenings. Ani Pema is based in Pleasant Bay Nova Scotia and that is days of driving for us and many hours for Susan. There is a place very near to me, though, where I am planning a retreat (they have a sliding scale fee) in 2012. Meanwhile, I am trying to read and do what Susan wrote she does, in her comment on VPM. So, so good to hear from you. I hope your computer problems don't keep you offline too long. Sending love and hugs and a kiss on each cheek!

  10. The flags are flying high.

  11. Oh that indeed is a lovely view and one I'd love to share someday. Around here there have been no more than two sunny days in the past twenty. I don't really mind the fog and mist as it allows me better light for painting and also seems to make the spring flowers last longer. So many neat things grow here I can't figure out why there are no cherry trees.

    Enjoy your weekend
    xoxo

  12. Susan - today, the sun tried off and on to participate but it was beaten down by clouds, followed by more rain. Tomorrow is my youngest's college graduation, thankfully indoors!

    I have tried to be patient but I need sun. My garden is looking good for June, though. Rose and peony bushes with glossy leaves and lilies looking very hearty.

    I dearly hope one day you will join us here and we'll sit in front of the river with food and drink and conversation; perhaps even a boat ride on the Connecticut to see the wildlife! Enjoy your days of painting and creating. Sending a hug and a kiss on each cheek,
    Gina
