|2nd grader's Earth Day painting|
While we were talking, Paul came along with his dog, Red, with big hugs and kind words and Happy Earth Day greetings. Paul is so enthusiastic just being alive; his joy rolls off of him in a warm wave, gently engulfing anyone around him and I got to have a little bathing in the glow. Oh, going to town in Culebra, you just never know what will wrap you up to send you on your way.
|This is the only litter that is good litter|
Being 250 higher than I normally am, literally, mind you, I've looked around at many things not present where I live, practically in the mangroves. Sometimes I feel like I could be in California, walking my son's driveway (if I don't look up and out to the sea, which you cannot see from his driveway), looking at the roots and grasses on roadside cuts into the earth.

Then, looking more, I started seeing some pretty unusual flowers. I'm transported to a jungle I've never been in. Instead of howler monkeys, I only hear birds and once, that crazy scream deer make when they are warning others to run run run from potential danger. I heard them running but didn't see them, fleet footed and flying away in fright. Me. I ask you, why would they be afraid of me? It's not even deer season.
|Yes yes, I had this in the blog yesterday, but it is so bizarre, it deserves another round.|
|I have no idea what this is. It is growing on a tree in the valley.|
|Another mystery plant...like an exotic bird of paradise.|

|The wind has been busy redesigning the beach|
|These are rarely so clear to see...I guess the wind has blown the air very clean|
|Footprints of the heart and sole.|
Love Her, we've only got One.
