Moment of Hope #14—Sunrise

We are living in some scary times right now. I am old and have lived through others but this one is somehow different and maybe more frightening. So until it is over each day I plan to post an image that provides calmness and a moment of zen. We all need a lot of moments like these right now.

Every day you can find a moment of hope. Right before the sun rises all the birds begin to sing. I think they are welcoming the day and their own renewa. Need some hope, get up early and watch the sun rise, listen to the birds and breathe.

I find watching birds in flight to be inspirational and uplifting to the soul. I find few birds as enjoyable to watch in flight as Pelicans. These were photographed in Florida and Mexico and processed in Pittsburgh PA

Quarantine Iris Pittsburgh 5/6/2020

Normally this time of year we would be headed to the Phipps Conservatory to see the Spring Flower Show. Sadly though it is closed due to the global pandemic. Our Pittsburgh garden doesn’t have the quantity or diversity of the Phipps but still some wonderful blooms to soothe the soul.
