Can’t get more satisfying than this

During a visit to Belize, we were served this super tasty salad of fresh fruit and veggies. I had never thought of adding grapes and kiwi to a salad (I usually add a few slices of red apple to my lettuce) but it turned out to be surprisingly yummy and satisfying.

What satisfies you? Do you prefer salad or fries? Maybe a steak and potatoes? Share a little on what satisfies you when it comes to food aka let’s start a conversation 🙂

NYC WPC Photo-Collage

 

“I get out of the taxi and it’s probably the only city which in reality looks better than on the postcards, New York.”
~Milos Forman
“As for New York City, it is a place apart. There is not its match in any other country in the world.”
~ Pearl S. Buck

 

I recently visited New York City this past Summer and although the time spent there was way too short, the experiences were amazing. Here is a quick collage which represents a preliminary taste of a truly life-changing visit aka make sure you stay tuned for more pics 🙂

Have you ever been to NYC? Shared your photos on your blog?

“Life is one big transition.” ~ Willie Stargell

A window seat is a must whenever I’m on a plane so that I can readily see the many magic blankets of fluffy clouds stretching away into forever, a view that never gets old no matter how much I travel/transition from one country to another (and I travel a lot … like every other week … and that’s a lot of clouds) 🙂

But what’s your delta experience? How are you moving/transitioning from one place or experience to another? Let’s start a conversation!

 

My contribution to this week’s WordPress photo challenge – Delta:

“This week, share a photograph that signifies transitions and change to you. It can be the very beginning of a phase, or the very end. As you pick up your lens, explore the ways in which a single photograph can express time, while only showing us a small portion of any given moment.”

Transient Emotion, Transient Meal

“I think character is permanent, and issues are transient.” ~ James Stockdale
♠   ♠   ♠

I ordered a cup of soup from my favourite restaurant but could not commit to a pick up time. This was more the norm than the exception and I knew even as I hung up the line that no matter how hard I tried, I would probably arrive later rather than sooner.

But it’s great when your chef knows you and knows you well. They made sure my anxiety in being late would be transient by penning a note on my soup cup, which in turn elicited a big smile from me when I finally arrived.  No-one (and they meant no-one) was touching that soup!

Well as you can see, the soup was really really really good … but transient too, because one minute it was there and in a flash it was gone 🙂

Looking at You (aka Reflecting)

REFLECTING

I look at you
sometimes more than
once in a single day
eyes fully open
not wanting to miss
one single moment,
straining to really see
how much of me
is growing
with you, in you;
not wanting you to be me
(not at all!)
but acknowledging all
that I could ever wish for
is already there … within you …
my most amazing work of art.

I was brave … kind of …

This photo was taken during a trip to Malaysia and no, that smile is not an indication of how brave I was; rather it was OMG take that photo quick so I can get these things away from me!
