  24. I used to watch 'Northern Exposer' http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northern_Exposure
    While I didn't watch every episode I did enjoy learning about some of the traditions celebrated in that town and the beliefs of the natives who lived there.

    There is a wonderful mystery to different beliefs and how the are connected. Thanks for stopping by. And for your lovely photos.

    I liked all of your 'segments' - the quote from Ovid and healing for all. Hugs, Jules

  29. A lovely weekend with your family and loved ones in your beautiful beautiful surroundings. As always great pictures (I would never have thought orchids could be so beautiful in B&W)...it's funny you almost forgot about Art Muse Dog for "Z" -- she would have been cross with you!

    Your posts are always full of joy (well almost always, except when you tell us you are sick!). Thank you for sharing it with us!
