“Let’s Get Goofy” got such a big response, including notes along the line of “I really needed this” that I am posting a few more crazy-ish pictures from pre-pandemic photo trips around the house and around the world.
My favorite place from everywhere we’ve been is East Africa (though Costa Rica is a close runner-up). The people are lovely and the animal life “in the Bush” is awe-inspiring (and often dangerous). The knowledgeable local guides make it very clear that safari-goers must stay on the vehicle unless and until she/he says it’s okay.
And sometimes don’t you feel like the universe is turning its butt towards us, too?
HAVE A GOOD WEEK!
*The furious Capuchin Monkey is in Costa Rica, not Africa.
Last week’s blog about QingMing and other cemetery customs celebrating and honoring ancestors garnered many responses, among them:
From Stacy Y.: Thank you for telling us about QingMing! What a lovely tradition!
and Connie B.: “Lovely, and that’s a great “look” for Bella–the photo that captures a flower between her eyes, almost!”
Chris B. added: “I’ve been observing this ritual for the past few weeks at my nearby cemetery. Besides the usual fruits and flowers, I saw a Chinese food b ag with at least three containers of someone’s favorite foods.”
And from Joan: “Was Monday moping till I read your blog….QingMing–how lovely!! Keep ’em coming!!”
