It’s the 5th Monday of the month, which means it’s all about editing and processing a photo for Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge. I thought I’d get into the mood for my trip to Mexico (leaving tomorrow), and work on a photo of a Mexican terracotta sun I have in my kitchen.
Photo taken with iPhone 6Plus, edited in Glaze on the phone, then PicMonkey to add a little boost to the color. After all, sunshine needs to be bright and warm.
I won’t be back until April 1st, so you won’t see me here for the next four or five weeks. I’ve decided to post photos on Instagram only, while I’m in San Miguel de Allende. I’ll be volunteering at a day care center for kids called Casa de Los Angeles (house of the angels), a day care for little ones of single working moms who wouldn’t be able to work otherwise. You can find me on Instagram at angeline.am, or log on here on my blog where my Instagram feed is brought over onto the right side of my front page.
Hasta la vista.
In the very early morning hours, while it’s still dark, I meditate on the nightlight gracing a bedside table that sends out light and shadow throughout the room.

A Peace Lily, bloom facing out toward the sun. I didn’t realize they are something that seem to be the thing sent for memorials. I received several, and contemplate their message as they turn to the light.

Working off an iPad for the first time can be a challenge unto itself. Bear with me as I test it as I prepare to travel to Mexico next month with this iPad and my iPhone (that I’ve never been able to use for posting to WordPress successfully).

Have a visit with others in the challenge at Lens and Pens by Sally. Figuring out how to add a link here is next on the learning curve.
A resting place
under leafy boughs
a gift that awaits
for summer days

I walked the couple blocks down to the creek on Sunday afternoon. It’s been awhile since we’ve seen the sun. The clouds drifted in and out, and my mood started to lift. Since we’ve moved here, this has been my place for soothing my soul. Walking through the gate that separates our neighborhood from the trail and creek, I was greeted by the cacophony of birds up in the old leafless oak trees that line the creek banks; that wonderful sound of what seemed like hundreds of birds reveling in the sun that kept breaking through the clouds. I looked up to see a black crow, wings spread, gliding above the branches. And the creek, filled with water for probably the first time in years, gurgling along, side-stepping rocks and reeds in some places, and running smooth in others.
I walked along the trail for some thirty minutes, and as I headed back to the gate I realized that the birds were quiet. Had the rucus they were raising when I arrived been a greeting to me telling me they were happy to see me again after a lapse in visits? I like to think so.
