  4. well the tumblr fairies flash mob showed up and sprinkled joy all around me today.  feeling really happy and grateful.  thanks to stephi for alerting me about this, i was able to take a screen shot of radar.  it’s real!  woohoo!

    i am truly, sincerely, deeply feeling blessed and grateful.  the last couple of months has been very uplifting and encouraging.  first i was accepted as a lensblr member, then i was telescopical's august blog of the month (thank you kara!), then i joined the pws team.  it’s all been an amazing and humbling experience.

    i have learned and continue to learn so much from this incredibly generous and supportive tumblr community.  all of you inspire and educate me in so many ways - learning to see, learning to be, and learning to feel.  

    thank you all so much for being with me on this journey and allowing me to partake in your journeys.  

    be well and keep creating!

  7. after being away for almost three weeks, we harvested/rescued these lebanese summer squashes from growing into the bed, literally.  they are huge.

  8. one of our favorite activities is trying out new fruits, especially tropical fruits. hawaii is a tropical fruit lover’s paradise.  

    we encountered the matisia cordata - “dulce” variety at the kcc farmers market. it’s also known as chupa chupa, or south american sapote.

    this fruit had exceptional flavors - like a mashup of mango, papaya with the scent of cantaloupe. the flavors are all in the juice.  the fruit was quite fibrous so there wasn’t much to eat.  but man the sweet juice!
