i don’t see any signs

Back to Long Island and Montauk Point Lighthouse for today’s post. On the north and south side of the lighthouse you can walk down to the shore, as you can see in the image above. When I turned to take this image I noticed the large rocks in front of the lighthouse featured a shelf – like a path – in between the two sloping sections of rock. I thought to myself, “I don’t see any signs… so…”

So, I started walking around the lighthouse. It was low tide, so I was grateful to stay dry while at the same time wondering what it would be like to walk around the lighthouse at high tide!

It was a short, but beautiful walk with the mighty Atlantic Ocean filling my view. Thanks for stopping by.

that’s my mom and dad

Spent a few days visiting with my parents last week in beautiful Puerto Rico. This was taken in Rincon, a popular area for surfers. This is the first of a few images from my trip to visit with them. My mom took a terrible fall two weeks before I arrived. Thankfully, no broken bones. I am very proud of them and I will share a few reflections/memories about them with these posts. For this post:

My mom and I had a conversation one day about things you talk about when your parents are elderly… I will never forget holding my mom as I assured her that she would always be welcome in my home…we cried, and as I held her frail, thin frame, through her tears she managed to say, “Take care of your father. He is a good man.”

He is a great man….and my mom a great woman…the kind of greatness that is like a rare, precious jewel….a greatness that changes the world because they are selfless, kind, so loving and possess a depth of wisdom that gives life… that’s my mom and dad…
