|Blue skies in La Conner February 4, 2014|
|green in early February|
|This was only March 7. There were already ducklings.|
|Besides blue skies, I love blue historic markers.|
|I love window-gazing in Paris. April Fool's chocolates!|
|Whalsay is the birthplace of my grandfather.|
|The bluebells were blooming in May.|
|I have travelled from the north to the south of Britain.|
I always spend the summer at home because Monsieur and I enjoy the blue skies and warm temperatures.
We enjoy the gardens in our apartment complex. Volunteers create special places to enjoy.
Come November, I am ready to look for more blue. This year, it was the Southern Caribbean and Tucson.

Most of my journeys are solo. Friends and family join me for a bit of time and I shared my stateroom on the cruise with a friend. Summer time and desert time are spent with Monsieur who loves the desert.
We walk, tour the countryside and read a lot.
Although the day has been grey and wet, I walked today with a freshly retired (December 31) friend. In my warm coat with my Shetland hat and gloves, I felt cozy despite the drizzle. As I went to buy some vegetables, I saw a man sitting on the pavement outside the market. Perspective….How does an articulate man of my age end up here? There are so many cracks in our mental health system. I dropped off a sandwich on my way home.

It is important for me to remember and to express gratitude for the comfortable and privileged life that I lead.
