Cool Blue Calm

I love these blue photos from Paris photographer Nicolas Vandeven's "Dark Blue" flickr set. They're so calming to look at. It's a perfect visual respite after a frenzied week. It's sprinkling here and I'm so glad. I hope it really rains. I'm looking forward to a weekend of rest.

Thank you everyone for your kind messages of concern about my dad. I read him your comments in the hospital today. It made him smile. And me too. He's doing better.

Ah sigh....


(PS: One more blue photo here.)



I'm so glad your dear dad is doing better... I know the feeling since my mom was admitted recently too... Hope you have a restful weekend Tina! ~my thoughts & prayers darling!

So glad your father is feeling better, Tina, and that you are in for a weekend of rest. These photos are truly so calming, wonderfuly mysterious and refreshing. I can almost feel the mist on my face. It's been raining all day in SF, and it's been lovely to just stay in. We have a skylight in the bathroom, and you can really hear the rain in there. I had a long, relaxing bath, a glas of wine and listened to the raindrops. I wish you a relaxing weekend, my lovely!

I was just thinking about him...when I was reading your Muse post. I'm so glad he's doing better. How nice that you read our comments to a bunch of get well cards or one huge one!

It's already raining in Northern Ca...I hope that a nice rain heads your way.

You are Botox for the soul. Incredibly soothing and calming photos -- and site, as well. Including your father in Sunday's mass prayers for the ill.

It's drizzling here too, and dark. Baby is sitting in my lap eating fortune cookies.

How could your Dad be anything but better with a daughter whose sense of care for the inner person leads her to share wonderfully contemplative photos. I feel as if you're caring for me, too. Thanks.
