Harmony

Harmony comes in all shapes, sizes, feelings, and even flavors.  Acai bowls have become my post workout rewards as of late.  A little something that brings healthiness to my hectic lifestyle. 

What healthy habit has brought some harmony in your life?

Art close to home

I used to think that I had to leave the island to find excellent artwork.  But a lot lately, I’ve come to enjoy local  artistic talent such as those above. 

When I was younger I didn’t spend too much time dwelling on art or even cultivating any interest in art. I knew that I was not good at drawing and no one really encouraged me to learn more about art. (Not that I wanted to.) So, I don’t know exactly when that interest finally took root or what work of art inspired me, but I know that I must have given in to some sudden curiosity. It was probably something sudden like  a moment wandering in a random gallery which later became hours spent in a museum.

My fascination in art was often in other places far from Guam such as New York City and the West coast. So, having returned home, I wondered if that fascination would continue and if it would strike a chord like those I had seen Stateside.  And it has, in the small exhibitions in local galleries and in hotels and even shopping centers. I found myself wanting to know more about local talent and to see more artwork. 

Regardless of where and when I  admired art or my slow and gradual love of art, I am glad that I do not need to go too far to admire artistry and talent. 

A view from above

The picture above was captured while I was taking a break from reading.   I liked how I had a bird’s eye view of the people enjoying themselves at the pool.  I could see conversations happening, parents teaching their kids to swim, and people revelling in the sun.  Catching moments like this make me realize how lucky I am to be living on an island paradise.

#fmsphotoaday Day 1: Sky

The sky over the Philippine Sea.

I couldn’t help but want to try out the #fmsphotoaday challenge this year.   It’s by no means a resolution of mine.  (I didn’t make any resolutions this year.)

So, I’m kicking off the first day of 2015 with a breathtaking view of the sky and the ocean.  Both of them having gorgeous hues of blues and being filled with movement. 

Anyone trying out the #fmsphotoaday challenge?  Please let me know.  It’d be great to share and see pictures coming from this challenge
 

Weekly Photo Challenge: Warmth

I don’t think I will ever get over how beautiful sunsets are here on Guam.  For me, scenes like this have a way of reminding me more about the good things that happened during the day.  And if my day wasn’t so well, sunsets also console me with the prospect of another day.  So even if the sun wanes and the temperatures drop,  sunsets carry it’s own warmth and renewal.
