Sometimes a different angle is all we need to see the beauty in a different perspective. But Kvernufosa was stunning at every possible angle..⠀

Here's a fun thing for you to try the next time you're out and about: Walk right up to something - a building, a streetlamp, or pretty much whatever you wish - and stare at it for a while.
I can guarantee you'll get stared at, as well, by strangers who will doubtless think you're a weirdo. But ignore them.
Instead, stand your ground, keep doing what you do, and enjoy the process of appreciating something you've probably never really appreciated previously. Enjoy hitting pause on everything and everyone else, even if it's just for a few fleeting moments.
This is the pedestrian bridge a few steps away from my office. I had some extra time to kill on a sunny Saturday morning, so I slung my Nikon over my shoulder and took a walk.
I spent a while walking the wooden-slat walkway under the century-old trusswork, ducking between the shadows and feeling the magic of this often overlooked structure. It took a while for the visuals to firm themselves up in my head, but eventually I got the photos I was destined to get.
I was indeed stared at. So I smiled back. Maybe next time they'll bring their cameras, too. We could always use more eyes looking at things whose stories aren't told as much as they deserve.
4 years separate the two photos. I guess i kept my taste for nature and photography. I am proud of what I have achieved and anxious for what is yet to come. 🙏 Meanwhile, I have learned that putting white socks on shorts is never a good idea. 🤷♂️🏞
I was walking through Osaka, Japan a few years ago when I spotted this gem. It reminded me of the resting bitch face that a lot of us women get labeled with if we aren't smiling. If my expression resembles this grate, it's because I'm probably following some long train of thought and that is far more entertaining than whoever is front of me. Aka you aren't as funny as you think you are. #rbf#evolvingconversations ⠀
#QuoteoftheDay ‘You need genuine love — then you will see genuine peace.’ - HH Younus AlGohar (https://medium.com/@YounusAlGohar/brown-people-and-jews-are-the-scum-of-the-planet-according-to-a-white-supremacist-8515ccb7fc2e)
This is a "Pink Blue Double Full Moon" falling on the Buddhist New year!
April’s Full Moon in Libra follows March Full Supermoon in Libra, which is an extremely rare phenomenon, known as a “Blue Double Full Moon” and as April’s Full Moon is a “Pink Full Moon” this makes it an exceptionally uncommon Pink Blue Full Moon!
Although it is widely believed that a Blue Moon only occurs when there are two Full Moons in the same month, or four Full Moons within the same season, two Full Moons in the same zodiac sign in a row is a far rarer and much more magical and mystical celestial phenomenon, as in ancient astrology there were no records of dates, months or seasons - energetic forecasting and experiences were recorded purely based on the alignment of stars, planets, the sun and moon. This is why this Blue Moon is a special, mystical and energetically life-changing event.
This type of Blue Moon has occurred this way as the Moon had only just entered the constellation of Libra when the moon was full in March, and April’s moon is in it’s final degree of Libra and is ready to transition out of it on this April Full Moon.
Full moons are always energetically potent, powerful, creative, and intensely magical and intuitive times. The cosmic vibes emanating from a blue moon are believed to be multiple times more powerful than a regular full moon; so this lunar energy will be super charged and radiating at its most intense.
This marks a turning point in our lives and will bring in major shifts that catapult us to new levels in all aspects of our lives.
Blue moons are sometimes referred to as a “wild card moon” in astrology, as they bring in unpredictable but immensely positive energies.
This impressive, supercharged moon has maximum energetic influence and has the capacity to heighten the powerful outcome of anything we ask of it. It will bring in numerous plot twists, so that anything not meant for us will gently dissipate. Closed doors and roadblocks are clear signs we aren’t heading in the right direction, so we may need to take a detour to find our destined paths.
Regardless of whether we were born in the sign of Lib
Good Friday. While this started off as a relaxing beach holiday, I knew the rest of this trip would be an awakening experience. Going back to where the place my mom grew up I’ve seen things that living in Canada, I’ve been fortunate enough not to live through. 😔
Travel in general can be eye opening. But, coming back to my roots and witnessing and experiencing first hand what it’s like to live in a third world country has been humbling ❤️
Feeling fortunate for the things I take for granted daily, and proud to be part of a family who does this every year to give back to the people of this village who have nearly nothing. 😢
After the Easter procession was over, hundreds of families and children came to our family home, knowing that plenty of food was prepared to feed the people in need in the village. What started off as a small thing, has now become a family tradition that every year my Mom comes home to do, and what the family is known for. Feeling completely blessed for what I have and this incredible experience 🙏🏼🇵🇭
