Listening For Thunder

Lights dim in the hall as the band packs its instruments away and the remaining dancers, stalling for time, shuffle towards the closing door of summer, talking in low tones about next year. All, except for two Gerbera daisies in a pot by the entrance, late bloomers who have suddenly found their own silent music.

We’re fools whether we dance or not, so we might as well dance. —Japanese Proverb

your reflection approaches and then recedes again

hallie easley

i was born on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay
but Maryland and Virginia have faded away

and I keep thinking tomorrow is coming today
so I am endlessly waiting

and the comet is coming between
me and the girl who could make it all clean.

halley’s comet (commonly pronounced /ˈhæli/, rhyming with valley) is the best-known of the short-period comets, and is visible from earth every 75–76 years.
halley is the only short-period comet that is clearly visible to the naked eye from earth,
and thus the only naked-eye comet that might appear twice
in a human lifetime.

House of the Moody Blues

Abandoned Echoes Photography

I found this abandoned house years ago but never had the right chance to explore it; instead I watched it sit, empty for the longest time, waiting for the opportunity to arrive. When it did, I discovered a treasure trove of retro junk, piled high in almost every room. Obviously someone is/has been using it as a storage locker for their stuff, though it doesn’t appear that anyone had been there in a while. My favourite part was the retro blue paint in several rooms – I call it “Moody Blue”.

Images of Georgia: Three Cities

A Traveler's Tale

Tbilisi, Mtskheta and Kutaisi are three of the most important cities of the country of Georgia.  Tbilisi is the present capital of Georgia, its name is derived from the presence of   hot springs which its famous ruler,  King Vakhtang I Gorgasali came to love.  Mtskheta, on the other hand,  is Georgia’s old capital and one of its oldest cities containing some of its most important historical monuments.  Finally, Kutaisi is Georgia’s second largest city and has recently become the parliamentary capital of the country.  Kutaisi also boasts of several UNESCO Heritage Sites.

I had the privilege of visiting and taking photos of these three cities, the results of which were featured in several posts in February this year.  Below are some of the images I captured of these 3 important cities of Georgia.
