Coming in for a landing




Living on an island means that you find yourself flying a lot more to get from point 'A' to point 'B'. I went to Maui last weekend to visit my son. Took this shot as we were touching down at the Molokai airport. We've had lots of rain recently, so everything is super green-making for a nice contrast to the plane's shadow.

The Wisdom of the Ancients






An ancient opihi shell (limpet shell) sitting atop the sea cliffs of Mokio Preserve. Basking in the last light of the day-that bewitching, golden hour (which is more like a few fleeting moments). If you are ever on Molokai between the months of Feb-Apr, be sure to sign up for a tour. The work being done there to restore the land to what it was is astounding.

A Bright Star Amongst the Shadows




Amongst the shadows of the forest floor, a beauty arises.

You don't have to be big to be bright or noticed. Or flashy. This little mushroom is smaller than a dime on the forest floor amongst so many branches and leaves. However, Mother Nature did decide that being a different color from what's around it would make it stand out. How can something so small and delicate be so beautiful, I wonder? And, it only appears after the rains. I wish I knew more about these delicate little things. Mushrooms are in the fungus family, that I know. And that mushrooms contain no chlorophyll and most are considered saprophytes-in other words, they obtain their nutrition from metabolizing non living organic matter.

I just think they are a marvelous work of art!

Subtle, But Sweet





A fleeting moment at your feet-as you walk past it. Did you see it? The light hitting it just right casting a shadow with sharp edges, yet belying of a delicate image. It's so easy to be pre-occupied and thinking about the task at hand to overlook something that warrants appreciation. Such as this. I almost missed it. So glad I didn't!

Celebrating the Mundane




Simple lines, shape, color. And light that is just right.

Celebrating the mundane and perhaps elevating it a bit.
