When you are a photographer,
you work all the time,
because your eye is the first camera.

As a free Afghan meets it’s end today ironically is the International Day of Remembrance and Tribute to the Victims of Terrorism. Please remember to pray for the Afghanistans that remain while the Taliban takes over their country.

I’m uncertain why Senior Citizen’s Day is only in the United States. As Canadians, we are missing our trips South, but it isn’t looking good for Canadian Snow Birds as the US border is closed for yet another month.

The most peaceful celebration today is World Honey Bee Day. A gardening group I belong to have been bemoaning the lack of fruit on their plants this year, but at the same time they ask how to get rid of bees and wasps and how to stop those darn squirrels from eating their sunflowers. So instead, celebrate the Honey Bee and welcome the pests into your yard. One day those caterpillars eating your dill will soar as swallowtails in the air.
