Desert Light, Blazing Stars

Rhode Island has burst into warm, sunny springtime!  Daffodils blossom along the sidewalks, their heavenly fragrance filling the air; cherry trees and magnolias are growing thick with heavy pink flowers.  I couldn’t be happier about this -yet the city is starting to wear on me.  It always does, after a while, with its concrete and noise and suffocating buildings.  In my daydreams and that in-between space between consciousness and sleep, I inhabit a world of mountains and ocean, endless day or brilliant celestial night, cold, clean air, and silence.

Thinking about this, here are some more pictures from that wonderful time, a few weeks ago, living on the sea.

Highlight of the day: drinking coffee in the warm desert air and watching the sun rise.

And such brilliant fields of blazing stars over a silent world, save for the lapping of waves and distant breathing of dolphins.
