Sticking with the theme of moving through and forward, this image was one of many windows — and windows always mean openings — and much light that we basked in last February. I love the yellow in this one. It was my Mother’s favorite color.

Quote of the day: “She wished she had a little yellow house of her own, with a flower box full of real flowers and herbs – pansies and rosemary – and a sweet lover who would swing dance with her in the evenings and cook pasta and read poetry aloud.” — Francesca Lia Block   (I have the sweet lover, we just need the house.)

My sister (you know who you are) before she took to the road, had a house with an amazing western view. When sunsets were particularly spectacular, she would put out the call, “Emergency sunset”! She would call throughout the house, holler to the kids, call her husband on the car phone, and just revel in the splendor. It always made me smile. Tonight’s was indeed an emergency sunset, coming on the heels of a lovely day. The sky was full of just that shade of blue, and the clouds had a life of their own. I stood in the grocery store parking lot, taking pictures with my phone, and watching the colors shift and swirl.

Quote of the day: “We are not going to change the whole world, but we can change ourselves and feel free as birds. We can be serene even in the midst of calamities and, by our serenity, make others more tranquil. Serenity is contagious. If we smile at someone, he or she will smile back. And a smile costs nothing. We should plague everyone with joy.” — Swami Satchidananda

Kelsea and I have returned to the real world of school and work. We had a fantastic time on our sojourn in Utah, and I drove 1000 miles in the last four days. Every mile was full of sights, talk, laughter, and love. Utah is beautiful and we would definitely go back, but perhaps in the spring or fall. I got a mild case of heatstroke on our one major hike attempt  — and I realized how much I need to pump up my cardiovascular system. One of the things I liked the most about Utah, aside from its beauty, was the honesty of its signage. When a sign says “Heat Kills”, it means it. And when a sign says 30 miles per hour (on a curve), it’s not kidding. I’m looking forward to sharing the beauty of this wonderful place with you through pictures.

People come out on the beach just to watch the sunset, and applaud afterwards. We continue to look for the Green Flash…

Quote of the day: “Faith is not a storm cellar to which men and women can flee for refuge from the storms of life. It is, instead, an inner force that gives them the strength to face those storms and their consequences with serenity of spirit.”  —  Sam J. Ervin
