A new day, a new country, illumination

Yesterday morning I woke up in my English home.
This morning I woke up in my Vancouver home.

I threw the curtains open and the first oblique rays of the winter sun hit the mantelpiece and this little gift from a visiting Japanese student.

Hello Mr and Mrs Oshiawase Ni, welcome to Vancouver.

Thought about and photographed for the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Illumination.

Hello Sunday Whirl...it's been a while
Short term, Long term and good luck

    I love your beautiful pictures. I wish you could teach me about photography. *sigh*

      Thank you Jeannine, you’re such a sweetie. I’d love to teach you everything I know about photography, (which isn’t all that much really). Just ask me anything you like.

      I know Esther…but what’s going to happen when I buy that houseboat on the Seine that I keep threatening to buy? How will I ever keep track of myself?

      Thank you so much Sara! Funny, last time…I think July, WordPress had Luminous as a challenge and I wrote about getting it thru my thick brain that I actually can unfriend nasty people. I was just thinking how nice it is to be able to concentrate on peace and light instead.

    Hey, welcome back to Canada! Things are cold and snowy in Calgary today. Try the 2 minute meditating thing…after two weeks I am still doing it…total miracle as I typically cannot sit for that long and suffer from busy brain.

    • Reply Veronica January 12, 2013 at 4:26 pm

      Nice Raina! I usually forget to meditate daily and then, when I need to, it’s all stressy, stressy and I have to calm my brain down first. I’ll go with the daily 2 minutes for the next few days. 🙂
