Moments of Beauty



















Today we pause for simple moments of beauty.

In the blasted and bleeding world we see through our TV and computer screens, we sometimes forget.....

It can be so beautiful.....


Barnita posted at her blog a moment in time that has stayed with me and warmed me for days.....

And the picture, ML took in his yard.

Thank you both for reminding us.

Fortunately, I have a job that gives me those kinds of moments. I guess that's why surveyors get paid so little.

Robert: Speaking of "a thing of beauty", I've been meaning to mention that the new blog graphic is absolutely superb -- remarkably eye-catching and quite aesthetically appealing. (Kudos!) ==== Brian: Lucky you! "Green collar" work is exceptionally hard to find here, though it also typically features a "fulfillment discount" in its pay scale. (Of course, we have our "presidential" environmental wrecking crew to thank for much of that -- "Let 'em breathe smog!").

Wow ML, you've got wild life in your yard. Very neat.

In my area, which is technically an urban area- the twin city of Mumbai - Thane, well my area's behind the Sanjay Gandhi National Park / Borivali National Park. Till a couple of tears back, it was common to spot leopards, panthers and other wildcats, who'd often come out of the park looking for food. In between in one year, during one of my final years in college there was a lot of press attention on the cats cos over 18 people died from cat-attacks. Then the pros came in to keep the cats and humans apart, and its been a few months or maybe years since we've heard of a wild cat in our locality. So either they now have enough food in the park, or they've been deported or exiled or executed - your guess.

"the new blog graphic is absolutely superb"

Thanks Nemo, My friend Kira designed it.

I have not the know-how or creativity to do something of that magnitude.

It's a variation on various Buddhist and sci-fi themes....

It just looked, to me, like a freaking thorn tree,

So I adopted it....
