'The ultimate value of life depends upon awareness
and the power of contemplation than upon mere
survival.' 
~ Aristotle



Our World Tuesday ~ 
Calm waters on Cape Ann MA but an overcast sky ~ 





Ruby Tuesday Too
Love the clusters of poppies here on Cape Ann MA



ABC Wednesday ~ letter is U
U~ A Unusal May on Cape Ann MA ~ 
It feels like winter yet there are a few boaters out on the
water ~ notice the 'no wake sign' ~
Good boaters obey this sign especially around sailboats
small boats and kayakers.









Watery Wednesday ~ 
Hearty Boaters on Cape Ann MA  ~ Here you can see 
the 'wake' from another boat speeding by.






Thankful Thursday ~ 
Thankful that the flowers on Cape Ann MA are blooming
despite the ever changing weather.




Sky Watch Friday ~ 
Skies on Cape Ann MA lately always seem to be
ominous at the end of the day.








Haiku My Heart with Rebecca ~
There is 'hope' on Cape Ann MA ~ weather has got to
improve ~ right? Anyway ~ a haiku (haiga) for you.








Paint Party Friday ~ 
Exploring 'etegami' again and it must be Cape Ann MA influence that I keep going back to 'fish'.





Saturday Critters and Camera Critters ~ 
This seagull loves to visit the deck on Cape Ann MA.






Shadow Shot Sunday ~ 
When there is sun on Cape Ann MA, makes for good shadow shots ~ not much sun lately, though ~ Memorial Day feels like winter still ~ cold and rainy. 


Sunday Sketches ~ 
Trying my hand at 'fish' again ~ photo is a bit gray ~ doubt we 
have 'angel fish' on Cape Ann MA ~ do have 'angels'. 





The Best for Last ~ 
'This weather is for 'the birds' 


We are wishing you a happy week. ^_^

  7. A busy post. Love those yacht photos. I have always wanted to sail on one. I have been on a tiny sailing vessel. More like a racing vessel. I have had visions of sailing and drifting about in luxury. ;) I rather enjoy the cooler temps but I have read it has been bad for migrating shorebirds. Sad about that. Have a sunny week full of fishes, family and friends.

  12. I love the break in the clouds of the first shot. That's what life often feels like, underneath it all is bright. The shadow shot is very intriguing.

  13. Nice contrast of a restless sky and calm water. It's that cold up there is it? I've heard some complaints from people here but I love this weather which is cloudy and rainy, but also in the 60s. That will change very soon so I'm enjoying it while I can. I like your fish drawing, is that watercolor?

  18. "Which school are you going to?" Hahahahahaha.

    I planted those kinds of poppies in the backyard. Well, actually, I tossed the seeds in the air. So, they've sprouted all around, but because I haven't given them much water, they don't bloom heartily. Maybe next year I'll be better.

  29. Great post, lovely quote of Aristotle and such wonderful blossoms of poppies. It's a time to healing indeed...with all the beauty of nature around us. Some rains, cloudy skies in here, as well, but still lovely for last days of Spring, i think. *-* summer is just around the corner...;) Sweet little Zoe...
    best regards and a lovely weekend to you! Alexa
