This week Cheri Lucas Rowlands wants us to share our interpretation of “on the move.”
Whether we realize it or not we are always on the move since the earth is always turning. Yet, it is in the still and quiet moments when we find our true selves. These are also the moments when we may notice and appreciate movement around us.
There is always something on the move at the aquarium.

Obviously there are cars on the move on freeways, but not every city has a double-decker duck boat.

This week Sara Rosso is challenging us to share photos that represent patterns to us. The world is full of patterns so I can’t wait to see what others are posting. My favorite patterns are from mother nature, but I also love architectural patterns. What about you?

Vacation is a wonderful thing and returning to life post-vacation is always hard. Throw in a six-hour time difference, eighteen days away from home, and the beginning of the school year, and you’ll have an idea of where my head has been the last few days.
The trip however was well worth the jet lag! I got a chance to visit with my oldest brother and his family, to spend time with old friends, and to explore D.C., Boston, and Maine, along with a little of New Hampshire with the kids. They rode their first subway. We explored four of the Smithsonian Museums and toured the national monuments via of moonlight tour. We walked the Freedom Trail and we drove down to Plymouth, then up to Maine, where we met friends and hiked in the White Mountain National Forest. All in all a wonderful vacation! I took a thousand pictures, but don’t worry, I am not going to bore you with that many.

Old Mother Goose was real! Who knew?
Did you know Old Mother Goose was based on the real person? Apparently, she was! I walked the Freedom Trail decades ago, but somehow I missed this tidbit until I went with the kids.
