Cruise ships understand being homesick while at sea. So they bring you a little piece of home with Johnny Rockets. A place for a good old fashion hamburger.

Can you guess what it is? I had to look it up but in Italian “coniglio” means rabbit.

Signs are everywhere in life. Some signs are physical and tangible like when you want to head to a business or take a road trip reading the passing signs to count off the minutes before you arrive to your destination.

Some signs are more personal like signs for answered prayers, the plant you finally grew without killing it, or the sign of the rising or setting of the sun letting you know you’re alive.

There are signs that your relationship is over, or you need to move on to the next step. There are signs that you’re being admired or that you’re being bullied.

So while we want to look for that clear sign remember some signs are not always so clear, but some signs are worth clearing up.

Weekly Photo Challenge- A History of Endurance

The Battleship Texas served sailors in WWI and WWII.

La Porte, Texas is a small town near Galveston Bay plays an important part in American History. The San Jacinto Battles Grounds is a historic attraction that kept up by the Texas Parks & Wildlife agency.

The photo of the Battleship Texas was taken during our housing hunting expeditions to Houston (believe me we had more than a few expeditions).  I added in the Mexican soldier (played so well by hubby) to portray “endurance”. Endurance is a hardcore ingredient when it comes to the making of American history.

The battleship tour will aid you in imagining the life sailors endure during the wars, especially in comparison with today’s sailors. Imagine your only source of news from home depended solely on snail mail? I am sure my iPhone toting teen would find that barbaric.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Humanity Living Off The Land


I enjoy traveling because learning becomes interactive. My visit to Jamaica revealed that poverty is real. In the United States people can go most of their life without seeing or meeting homeless. However, that is getting more difficult as economies remain unstable.

I was impressed with the Jamaican people, that no matter the difficulties of their struggles, the Jamaicans are a positive and resilient people. In Montego, Jamaica stands a statue of  Samuel Sharpe,a revered freedom fighter against slavery.  Sharpe, a leader in abolishing slavery in Jamaica, and aided towards eventual independence from Britain.

The train ride to Venice…two perspectives.


The train ride to Venice...two perspectives.

The train ride was too long, about 6 hours…but the girls couldn’t wait for it to be over. My hubby took the time to enjoy the passing scenery. Now the adventures once we got to Venice that’s another story!

Full Moon Metamorphosis


Full Moon. It is witness to all metamorphosis that happen during its full light. Moon rays stretch into the darkness to bring change where some feel none exist. Me? I don’t know if I change, but I do feel the changes in the air. The moonlight shines like a beacon, spotlighting the happenings of living things. The moon’s power is definitely underestimated when compared to its other half, the sun. The moon’s pull can change the tides, and its magic can transform a man into a ferocious beast. It is by moonlight that dark and sensual deeds are sought out, including the awesome tales of blood lust by  legendary vampires.

The full moon entices the weak to become strong and the adventurous to indulge in ghost stories before braving to sleep under the night sky. In the light of the moon your favorite swimming hole becomes a place where water nymphs and fairies live among the floral and fauna. By moonlight shadows are no longer ordinary while sounds once recognized become extraordinary. Ahhh, but my imagination runs wild, or does it?

Weekly Photo Challenge: One Shot-Two ways about it


Amsterdam, brouhaha-access, transportation
In Amsterdam the tram is one of the easiest and inexpensive ways to travel. However, if you want the true Dutch experience-ride a bike! then hold on tight and pedal, pedal, pedal.

Taking sunday walks in Europe is the thing to do when you want some quality time in your relationship. Although stores are closed, food establishments and clubs are not. Nothing is more romantic than window shopping through cobbled stone streets.

The human brain is fascinating in that it can process so many things at once. However, the best way to take things in is to slow down and see the world from all angles.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Masterpiece

Masterpieces are not hard to find. It’s just that we need to slow down enough to appreciate them. My favorite part about Europe is how much they love to display their art around the city. You could stroll down a small residential alley way just to find a masterpiece when rounding the corner.

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Golden Hour Is the Moment We Exhale


the rainbow the universal sign of "hope".
The rainbow. The universal sign of “hope”.

There is always a time in the day, week, or month when we stop what we’re doing and exhale. In this moment we become more observant and see what we might have missed in our daily lives. I saw this rainbow after waking from a mid-afternoon nap. I woke  opening my window to see the rainbow streaked sky. It was a nice view to wake up to, and as I stood there for a few moments more I thought of all the other people who might be seeing the same sight. I wondered what this sight of a rainbow meant to them? What feelings it might evoke. Hope? Beauty? Mythical beings that may or may not exist?

Exhale, but remember to enjoy the next intake of breath then exhale. Each new breath clarifies the mind to enjoy the world around us.
