“That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”
Neil Armstrong, July 20th, 1969
Couldn’t resist posting this lovely garden moment to the Lens Artist challenge: Detail
A moment for reflection this week in Vanier Park, Vancouver.
Oh what a joyous day, with the birth of our first grandson this morning.
Congratulations to his mummy, daddy and little sister,
and welcome to the family beautiful boy.
Fondly remembering Anthony Bourdain who would have been 63 today. I’m reading his collection of essays “The Nasty Bits” at the moment, which was published by Bloomsbury Publishing in 2006. One prescient passage seemed to leap from the page as I read it. I think you’ll see why.
from the essay, VIVA MEXICO! VIVA ECUADOR!
How much is that dogwood in the window?
British Columbia’s floral emblem in full and glorious bloom outside our window.
With apologies to the late Bob Merrill, lyricist, composer and screenwriter, who wrote the song from my childhood, “How much is that doggie in the window?” in 1952.
A little bouquet to welcome the first day of summer.
Remembering my late father on Father’s Day with this lovely painting of his. I remember the day he proudly brought it home from his evening art class. Thanks Dad, and Happy Father’s Day to all the lucky dads and grandads out there of which I’m perhaps the luckiest ❤️
“At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.”
