The World in a Place

No matter where I’ve been, there is something about this place that tugs at me.

Somehow watching the sunshine and the children playing on the beach with not a care… brings happy memories.

It’s nothing much to look at, just a simple fishing village on an island.


But it’s one that says “this place is yours” every time I visit.


I carry within me anywhere I go. Nice to know there’s a corner in the world waiting for you anytime.

Place in the World


Are You Sure You Want to Save the Changes?

Before we close a file, the program asks “Are you sure you want to save the changes?”

Someone said we should ask the same question at the end of each day, before we close it. Are we sure we want to save the changes… to ourselves, to our lives. Are they worth keeping? Or is it a day we can discard, like changes to a file we don’t want to save?


Someone else said, “In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.”

Am I sure I want to save the changes? It’s not always an easy question. For today, I am happy to add this post.


If the World Was Mine


If the world was mine
I’d paint it gold and green
I’d make the oceans orange for a brilliant color scheme
I would color all the mountains, make the sky forever blue

If the world was mine
I’d tell you what I’d do
I’d wrap the world in ribbons and then give it all to you
– Melody Gardot

There are times when we wish the fleeting can last forever.

Romanticizing a Fisherman’s World

With the help of photography…


we can find colors…
create a sense of endless summer…



and be reminded that one’s ordinary life can be another person’s paradise…
and that there is so much to be thankful for everyday…
