With St. Patrick’s Day approaching on Monday, and stores everywhere filled to the brink with green tacky leprechaun-y things, my mind naturally turns to……..Ireland! I bet you never would have guessed that from me, huh?! :) Which of course leads me to the time-consuming YouTube, which of course led me to this driving in Ireland video. It’s supposed to be humorous tutorial, but it just succeeds in making me long to be driving over there. We spend so much of our trips in cars, squeezing down the narrow roads, always amazed at some of the roads we travel upon, and even more amazed at the places they lead us to. Enjoy indulging in a little wishful thinking with me. Slainte, Lisa
Here are two pathway pictures taken in the Elizabethan Gardens, Manteo, NC. Do you prefer the winding path where you can’t see the end, or the straight path, where the end is clearly visible? I have to say that I prefer the winding one, although in life, I always feel that I want to know what’s going to happen. But maybe I really don’t…life is so much the better for the surprises, the “wow, I didn’t expect that”, the bends and turns and beauty discovered after time. And so this is what my brain is thinking about on a Monday morning….I think another cup of coffee is in order. ;) Slainte, Lisa
“Show me your ways, O Lord, teach me your paths; guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.” ~Psalm 25:4
Unless you start doing something different,
you are in for more of the same.

And in the end,
it’s not the years in your life that count,
it’s the life in your years.
~ Abraham Lincoln ~
Cut not the wings of your dreams,
for they are the heartbeat and the freedom of your soul.
~ Flavia ~
Life can only be understood backwards,
but can only be lived forwards.

Blessings for your Thursday; live forward, different, fully, flying. Lisa
Since I was a little girl, I have been drawn to the light. To the sunshine, to smiling people, to laughter, to music, to water dancing diamonds in the day. My soul cries out for those things and needs them like food. God calling out to me….that’s how He does it. With light and beauty and music; all saying “I’m here…I’m here.” Today I’m going to try to be one of those sparkly, smiley people; with His help, I’m going to look for my place to shine. :) Blessings, Lisa

What started out to be a picture of some cool rocks turned out to be a picture of people taking pictures. :) Cameras, touring, snapping pictures that later will be memories….all a very big part of traveling for most people. It’s always interesting to see if the cameras reflect the people’s personalities: the little pink one for the young girl, the ultra compact for the European traveler, the larger one for the more “serious” photographer. Sometimes the camera choice just means that that’s the camera you have, or the one you can afford. All I know is that as much as I like my bigger camera, sometimes when I’m traveling it gets to be a pain. And I long for a little small pocket 35mm that I used to have back in college that long ago went to camera heaven. What’s your camera preference when traveling? Slainte, Lisa
