Reality Is Scary

I have been living in a world draped with illusion that allows me to believe in a non-reality. And I had a slap in the face awakening this week about how wrong I have been.

Pink in the Fall? FOTD

Cee’s Flower of the Day Photo Challenge prompt is leaf, but I found this fall flower that grows wild here in the central mountains of Mexico and decided to share it today.

Books and Paper–CFFC–Ireland’s Trinity College

I am not a library tourist, meaning visiting libraries around the world are not one of my ‘must do’s’ while traveling, but I couldn’t resist seeing the Trinity College Library in Dublin, Ireland several years ago.
