Your pics are interesting, but your interpretations are especially lovely! If I lived near the beach, I would be there walking -- and looking down -- as well.


I totally understand and have a few missing memories of my own. It was a wonderful era. :-D


Gack--so sorry! I haven't been on Medium a lot lately, and just saw this...Barbara is added now.


Wow! I have always loved traditional Mexican art and enjoy graffiti everywhere, but these are particularly stunning!


We're so glad you're back--albeit not for the reason. :-( I sit at home pondering my own Covid-interrupted career at 59, so I hear you. But as long as we have cafes, it cannot be all bad, yes?


What a lovely place! Austria has been on my list for awhile...I'll have to seek out the lake. :-)


Hi Elvie, you have been added to Snapshots! Please review the submission guidelines, and let us know if you have any issues submitting. Thanks to Anne Bonfert for the head's up!


Such wonderful, natural beauty! My phlox are all white, although I have an assortment of other varietals budding.

Is it too warm?! Of course I worry about climate change, but as a general rule I am thrilled to feel the sun again. If Florida weren't so insane, I'd consider it! (Sorry, Dennett ;-)

And the May apple blossom is Gorgeous! Now you need to share the actual apple when it appears. I'll be waiting. :-D


I'm so glad this spoke to you! And I'm glad your parents remained healthy. My MIL was relatively healthy till close to the end; I think in some ways it's harder when one is that much healthier--especially mentally. But they had a great life overall, as it sounds like your parents did as well, and that's as much as we can ask for.


Wonderful piece that cuts to the very heart of why one should teach. Education has been under attack for far too long, where I live at least, and our children--children of color in particular, of course--continue to pay the price. Thank you for all that you do!
