more closer looks

Here are a few more close looks at some of natures miracles.
The middle of an Orchid has so many fantastic things to look at. Above, is just one of those beautiful things---such incredible  shapes and colors!
I don't remember what the above flower is----I just know it is BEAUTIFUL!
Here below, another picture of the same petals.
Amazing......!
And above, some Cabbage Leaf flowers.....Just how amazing are these....?
This amazing!
This is about all I can focus on these days.....

The Beauty in The Creations of Nature.......
And here above.....just one more of those miracles........

More To Come........



NOTE:  Another very special person has left this life....The wonderfully talented Marcia Wallace, died on Friday, October 25th.....Marcia was an extraordinary person in so very many ways----her career was a truly spectacularly wonderful one---surviving breast cancer was another fantastic milestone;  finding the love of her life and then losing him to pancreatic cancer---(another of life's impossibly difficult challenges)----but not before they had their  wonderful Mikey.......the pride and joy of her life......So, in a show business life filled with many  memorable appearances, the "The Bob Newhart Show" and then "The Simpsons"---are her career legacy's......
But, more important, besides her beloved Mikey, she leaves family and so very many dear dear friends and co workers who truly loved her.....
I knew Marcia for many many years, and admired her greatly for so very many reasons---not the least of which was her bravery in the face of incredible adversity ....but I was not close to her in the way so many people that I am close to, were.....
I send heartfelt condolences to them and to her beloved family.....
Rest well, dear Marcia......you deserve a sleep filled with  peace; the 'peace  surpassing all understanding'.........

look close

As most of you know, I love looking at flowers close-up.....There is something so beautiful about natures creations----especially, when you look really close up........
Something magical and other-worldly, too,
sometimes.
I love color---I mean, I LOVE IT!!!
And in the world of flowers.......
Well.......it's just color, color, color, and more color.
all the time!
And lots of curves, too.......
And shapes that surprise.......
And beauty that stuns.........
I really really need this now.



More To Come.......

an anniversary


On October 7th, I will celebrate the 8th Anniversary of my blog.
It doesn't seem possible.....
(And I realize I have actually been "Confined" for almost nine years----
I didn't start my blog till almost a year into my Confinement---
Just a little side note.....)



I've written about so very many things over these eight years----so very many experiences that were "Highlights" in my life.....
But,
I think one of the most satisfying series of Blog posts for me were
all the posts about my 18 days in the South Of France, (with pictures), in the Summer of 1969. 
I LOVED that trip and it was memorable in every way.



So, to Celebrate this fantastic milestone occasion, here are a few links to some different posts of the 'French Trip'......

And here below is a second post--(Actually Part #6) of The French Trip......

If you enjoyed these----do check out the rest of them.
Those were Heady days and a perfect example of the great fun I've had blogging and sharing my life with all of you truly wonderful and special people, these last eight years....

It's also a chronicle of the full life that I have had and a true reminder of truly better days.......



This Blog has sustained me for the last eight years, 
and has been my connection to the world outside of these four walls----

And the BEST thing about Blogging has been meeting and knowing all of you......
That, my dears, has truly been the greatest gift of all!

Enjoy! Enjoy!
