Change at Guildford

for Ailsa’s weekly Travel theme: Noise

Travel theme: Noise

Sudden summer wind…

Grasses dance and ripple with

Waves of sight and sound.


This brief film is of the fields behind The Maltings, Ely, Cambridgeshire in England.

The sound of the wind blowing through the rushes is for this week’s travel theme from Ailsa: Noise.

Health for Humanity


With Nicole’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Humanity, I would like to showcase the wonderful volunteer work of colleagues of mine. Health for Humanity is a registered, charitable organization based in British Columbia, Canada. They undertook their first surgical mission to Guatemala in 2002, and have provided access to needed surgical care to more than 1500 men, women and children in Guatemala and the Philippines. Visit their website and learn more about their inspiring humanitarian work. The video was directed and produced by Ashli Akins and we have been invited to share it with our friends.

Waiting for the Aurora

Great Bear ii

…but found the Great Bear.

The Aurora Borealis was forecast to be seen over Metro Vancouver tonight. It’s now 2:30 in the morning and I think I’ll call it a night and be happy with the Great Bear, seen in a beautiful night sky, a sky that has linked our humanity since the beginning of time.

Lost and Found

Nicole, whose blog Thirdeyemom teaches us so much about our world through her eyes, has challenged us this week to express through photography “Humanity”.  Nicole’s images and words should be seen and read by all, for they are always inspirational. Thank you Nicole.
