    1. Merci, Carol!
      The sun finally was out, and I took a lunch hour walk through the gardens.
      The light was magical.

  5. Merisi, that is sad that you have never done a Theme Day, yet you do Skywatch Friday. I have checked through your blog and the first post was December 2005. when did you join CDP?

    1. Julie,
      Gerald England was kind enough to put my blog onto the CDP roster. 2006 or 2007?
      I felt very honoured then, and still do today. I shall keep an eye on Theme Day!

      I started joining Skywatch Friday long ago, old blog friendships. However, I only participate when my posts coincide with the theme.

      Putting out a daily blog is a pleasure, and as hard as I try to reach out to fellow bloggers, time constraints won't always allow me to do as much as I would like to.

      Thank you for your visit and comment, I truly appreciate it,
      Merisi

  7. Merisi, as I gazed upon these golden photographs, I was thinking of that Beatles tune Here Comes the Sun!

    1. You are so right, Frances! When I started typing the title, the Beatles melody instantly came to mind. ;-) Amazing, how many lines of songs and poetry become part of our daily idioms, often without memory of where we picked them up.

      I love the statement of The Academy of American Poets:

      LIFE / LINES
      We each carry lines of poetry with us. Words that others have written float back to us and stay with us, indelibly. We clutch these "Life Lines" like totems, repeat them as mantras, and summon them for comfort and laughter.

      Here, the link to their homepage: The Academy of American Poets @ Poets.org

    2. Thank you so much for this link, Merisi. I love the concept of remembered poetry as life lines, and know I practice such mantras daily.
