The World Through Rose Colored Lenses

Thin clouds filtered the sunset over a canal in Kyoto, Japan. Water gurgled under the foot bridge. The cool air drifted across the water and carried the fragrance of cherry blossoms.

My mother always told me I looked at the world through rose-colored lenses. I purchased a pair of rose colored sunglasses and used them for this photo so she could see the world as I did.

A stroll along the Walk of the Philosophers, in April, blooms with inspiration.

Kyoto’s Walk of the Philosophers inspired this.

And the Japanese equivalent to the Miracle on 34th Street . . .an empty train car in the late afternoon. A miracle indeed.

An empty train car in Kobe, Japan during the late afternoon, priceless.

    It’s good to stop and smell the roses–or the horses–once in a while. Halfway through my morning commute, there is a pasture next to the road where two or three horses usually gather for their breakfast. One day, I pulled over and watched them through the fence and took a picture, just to get a different perspective on my commute, as the traffic on that road is usually backed up to the bottom of a long hill.

    This morning, after nasty traffic the whole way, I stepped out of my car at work and heard the beautiful, urgent call of geese overhead. I looked up, and there they were, silhouetted through a thick layer of fog in perfect V formation. I was thankful to witness that. Their natural beauty gave me a sense of calm before stepping into the warehouse. And they didn’t poop on me.
