Into the blue

Blue 1

The weather lately has matched my mood :) Though the chillness in the air persists, and we haven't really "Marched" into spring yet, days are beginning to get longer and the light has been cheerful. Anyone who has been following this blog for some time ..and oh, by the way, the blog is three years old now....what started as an attempt to find beauty in my immediate surroundings from behind the lens is now my way of connecting with like-minded virtual strangers who soon end up becoming friends :) and through good times and bad, in sickness and in health, this blog has been a source of joy.........but I drift. What I was going to say before I got carried away, that anyone who has known me for a little while will know my penchant for all things blue.........so while going about my life, when I chance upon a blue as special as the one in the top shot, it is nothing short of serendipity for moi :)

Regarding the move, I quit my job last week. My first-ever affair with corporate America lasted precisely a year.....For now, I have decided to find my niche in the non-profit world and will be moving to Central Pennsylvania at the end of this week to start work in a hospital there. A part of me is stoked about the move, while the other is anxious about some changes that are tied to this decision of ours........We intend to tackle these challenges one at a time and I am going by the faith that our challenges won't outlive our determination.......:)

I think you have made a good and very difficult decision. It sounds like this was a good heart decision that will make your days less "blue". I wish you and your hubby much sucess and peace in the new chapter of your lives.
Central Penn. should be a lovely homey place to live.

I love that first shot....I am so ready for winter to be over! To think, I asked to move somewhere with seasons.

Good luck on your transition!

From a fellow lover of everything blue....glorious! Magnifique! I love both photos. Makes me want to go out and paint a wall blue and grow hydrangeas against it! :)
I'm awed by the rich color of that water!
So you're coming east! I hope and pray the new job will offer interesting and fulfilling work for you Moi. You have what it takes to meet the challenges :) Wishing you well dear Moi.
