corner view: from where i sit



i love when i sit and suddenly realize that right now is a special moment. and then if the camera is next to me, by chance, not because i was intentionally looking for a motive, giving me an opportunity to catch a moment of still and quiet beauty. in the garden, or at the beach in the tent.

for more corner views, visit the lovely jane of spain daily

------------------------

and just because it is important for me to let you know that the latest events here in the middle east did not go unnoticed and saddens me beyond believe:

"Between a high, solid wall and an egg that breaks against it, I will always stand on the side of the egg."
