For the last day of Becky’s April Bright Squares, this is a (double) rainbow, a perfect and complete arc that we were treated to yesterday evening at 7:00 after a brief storm blew through our area. Afterward, just about all my friends that live around here posted their rainbow photos on Facebook! I mean, WOW! This was a spectacular sight! A fitting end to a very BRIGHT month! Thank you, Becky!
I had never heard of the following music before, but I went to YouTube and typed in “Vancouver Twilight” and this is what I got. Apparently Twilight in Vancouver is new – released on January 3, 2020! The composer & instrumentalist is Sarah Debnam, known as Sarah the Illstrumentalist.
Cee has a new challenge, which she will post every Wednesday! It is called On the Hunt For Joy. The first topic is Get Outside.
And in fact, this is exactly what I did today, on my way home from a lecture. It was very cold today (colder than it has been this month but not unusually cold for January) and not a day I really wanted to go outside, but I was hot at that point from being overdressed and when I stepped outside, it felt really good!
What made me go outside was a beautiful late afternoon sky and I knew I wanted to take photos of it reflecting on the big pond behind our community’s main building. Taking off my gloves, I took several shots with my cellphone and decided to take the long way home. It didn’t take me long to feel cold (especially my hands) but I enjoyed the walk anyway because of the beauty of the afternoon. Here are a few of the photos I took.
The half-frozen pond created this undulating ridge across it and behind it were gentle ripples on the water.
Did you know? The Dead Sea is actually not a sea – it is a lake, but has been called a “sea” since ancient times. It is more than 30% salt and the percentage of salination is gradually increasing as the sea/lake diminishes. It is called “dead” because it harbors no life due to the hostile environment of high salination.
