Holidays and Celebrations:
Important enough in American Folklore to have 2 days: March 11th and September 26th Johnny Appleseed Day remembers one man’s dream to ensure that apple trees grew everywhere across America.
Today is also Dream Day. So follow your dreams and see where they will take you. They are limited only by your imagination.
I’ve never tried one but today is Oatmeal Nut Waffles Day. Maybe today is the day to try one. 😉
I’m a photographer, period. ~David LaChapelle (American – Photographer / Born: March 11, 1963)
I love photography,
the immediacy of it.
I like the craft,
the idea of saying ‘I’m a photographer.’
Holidays and Celebrations:
Changes. Some are good, some are bad. Every time I sign into my blog site the “Basic Block Editor” changes, the look and feel of how I’m inputting my thoughts onto the computer screen changes by some unknown god that keeps modifying my fonts and how it works. I’m not certain I like these new fonts and changes.
Lailat al Miraj is the Muslim celebration of the ascension of the Prophet Muhammad to heaven where he is allowed to see God in person and leads all the other prophets in prayer (including Joseph, Adam, Abraham, Moses, Aaron, Jesus, and John the Baptist.) He returns to Mecca he describes things to the Quraish and proves that he was there.
Today is also World Kidney Day. when we celebrate the wonderous functions of our Kidney, the water filter system of our body. My husband, a kidney cancer survivor is thankful everyday that we are born with 2 kidneys and only need one. My future daughter-in-law, a kidney transplant recipient, is thankful for our advances in technology that helped with dialysis until a donor was available. Please remember to sign your donor cards so others can use the earthly parts when you don’t need them anymore.
Dream Day started in Costa Rica by author Robert Muller. On a bench known as the bench of dreams, visitors sit with 2 stones, one in each hand, put their hands together and dream of a better world. One stone is left behind in the nearby garden, the other is taken with the dreamer so that they can remember the dream. During COVID-19 restrictions we may not be able to go to Costa Rica, but we could make our own bench of dreams in our yards or communities.
Tundra Swans are flying north and gathering throughout our local area. I went to the Thedford Bogs (with many other people) to see this wonderous gathering of the Tundra Swans. Yesterday was very windy so the birds rested for the day on the open flooded fields and feasted on the left over corn. It is amazing to see the thousands of graceful travelers and hear them chatting.
