I was out talking a stroll this afternoon and decided to have a slice of pizza at this little Mexican restaurant. I found my place in the sun and enjoyed it as best as I could. It was lovely. What is your favorite place to eat?
I am trying to find meaning in my life. I am trying to be happy. This web page is a product of that. There is so much to see in the world, that I am trying to push hurt and anxiety away from myself to leave room for the hopefulness of those things. What makes you happy? What unburdens you and de-stresses your life?
I believe that one should look at beautiful things, because the things we surround ourselves with become we are and we perceive ourselves to be. God has created this earth for us to enjoy and bask it’s beauty. I am a New Yorker and I for one, have never seen a beach like this up close and personal. That is not to say that I do not love my New York beaches. It is where I go to be calm and at peace. My favorite places in the world really. Yet, there is something about this photo, when I found it that just excited me from it’s sheer beauty and the mood it creates. Can’t you just see yourself there? Because I can. My Mother and I love to go to the beach, and one of my dreams is to take her to a beach like this. Have you ever seen a beach like this? Would you like to go?

I took this photo in the summer of 2010 on a Brooklyn beach (AKA The Borough By The Sea). It is one of my favorite photos ever! My Mom and I spent the entire day on the beach, it was hot and amazing. We took the photo past 7, I believe, the tide had receded considerably, which made it seem that you could just walk into and keep walking forever into the ocean; and the evening had begun to spread out against the sky. The atmosphere was very relaxed and peaceful. I cherish this photo because it puts me right back in that place, in that mood and feeling. I can hear the ocean, the children playing, smell the saltwater and seaweed. Do you enjoy the beach as much as I do? Which beaches are your favorite? Send me your beach photos and I will post them as inspirations (with your credit, of course)!
In my part of the world (New York City) we had a lovely little snowfall that started Friday night and went on through to Saturday evening. If you’ve never seen New York in the winter, you should! It can be extremely beautiful. It is also my brother’s birthday today, so the snow seems extra special. I wanted to share that happiness with everyone and hope it reaches you all.
Please be grateful for the gifts and blessings you have been given in life. It is so very cold out there and we should always remember that “There, but for the grace of God, go I”. Any little bit can help those in need. Even a dollar given to the right charity or donating your old coats and winter clothes to a local house of worship or your preferred charitable organization.
For now, enjoy these two photos, please! From my family to yours! Send me some of your favorite winter shots! Do you have a favorite thing about winter? What is it?
