Final Full Moon of the Decade

I got home late last night after an amazing trip. My flight was delayed and I managed to get the very last seat standby seat on a different flight (thanks United!)

I didn’t see the moon on the ride home from the airport, but the night was illuminated so I hoped it would come into view along the way. Only when I was out of the car and on my front steps, did I catch it.

For me, this has been The Year of the Moon from the release of my debut ALIANA REACHES FOR THE MOON to the wonderful celebrations around the world of the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11.

Don’t forget to look up in awe.

Denver Art Museum Part 3 – Lucas Samaras Corridor

The Light Show, an exhibition which examines light and reflection in a variety of ways will be on display through November 2020. I’m only sharing one part of this, the Lucas Samaras Corridor which is basically like being inside a kaleidoscope.

Denver Art Museum Part 2 – Monet Exhibit

I’ve always loved Impressionism and Monet is a sentimental favorite for me because I have fond memories of a special exhibit that I went to with my mom at the Art Institute of Chicago.

Monet traveled extensively so his work includes paintings in London, Amsterdam, Norway, the French and Italian Riviera on the Mediterranean, Normandy, Paris, and of course Giverny where he lived and created his famous Water Lilies work.

Beautiful use of light and shadow
Monet does an excellent job using reflection on the water

Lakeside Hike above 10,000ft

Afternoon sunlight filters through trees

and dances atop the lake like twinkling diamonds.

In the distance,

peaks above the tree line with their pockets of snow that stayed all summer

add to the beauty and feeling of remoteness

the trill and rat-a-tat-tat of birds create the soundtrack.

Sunset Views from the Sky Part One

When I fly, I always try to have a window seat. I usually sleep for part of the flight and it’s definitely the best place not to be disturbed. Looking out the window is the other reason, and the photos in this post validate my preference.
