Midwest as I had imagined it :)


Long before I stepped here, I had imagined Midwest as in this image. It took some time for weather to offer this glimpse and confirm it for moi :) I know there's more to the "middle" America and I am only beginning to explore it. And loving it too.

Sometimes when I think of Seattle and how different our lives and the surroundings would/may have been, I take a li'l help from Douglas Adams and I know "I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be." No regrets, whatsoever!!! :)

Hint of gold

Winter beauty

What is it about the light in winter that makes it so precious? I guess, it's the fleeting, ephemeral beauty of it.

Soon, it will be spring and these frozen trickles will thaw into gushing streams. Till then, I will continue to enjoy the stark beauty of winter :)

A small corner of charm :)

Playful light

Back from work, last evening, I walked into our home to find this magical light filling up the bedroom. And now that the long weekend is upon us I get to enjoy our newly done up pad a little more than on "normal" days :)

All that glows

A dose of evening sunlight

As I leave early in the morning for work, more often than not, it's still dull and grey and the sluggish Sun still too drowsy I guess, to make an appearance for our benefit. But a dose of evening sunlight on my way back home restores the soul. These were captured while relishing the fading last rays of sun from my porch and waiting for my husband to return from work. Hope you all had a beautiful day too :)

Relishing the last rays of light....

Sandy Hook Light

Sandy Hook Light

I haven't been out with my camera in some time now. I just haven't had time to. Hopefully "with time", as I get more used to this disciplined (tied-up???) life I'll learn to juggle things better. I swear, I am trying.

Meanwhile, here's yet another lighthouse that we added to our "collection" recently. Sandy Hook Light (built in 1764) located almost on the tip of New Jersey is the oldest continuously working lighthouse in US. It was shot on a beautiful afternoon that we spent outdoors with my husband's cousin.

The park surrounding it was completely deserted and we had this beacon all to ourselves...almost like our own quiet, private getaway. On the flip side, since the light stays closed in winters, we could not get to climb up into the tower to get the view of New York Bay and Atlantic. Next time, perhaps!

Warm winters


Winter's far from over in these parts.....but I don't mind it. Not yet. A warming log in the fireplace and cuddly blanket on the bed...a husband who cracks a joke a minute...and books and movies to keep company. Winters are not so bad after all :)
