  1. You may be in Manhattan
    and I on the isle of Oahu
    but we both can look at the lotus
    and feel our friendship blossoming.



    Aloha, Daryl!

    BTW, I liked the shadows on that statue today as well. I also thought the chairs in silhouette added something, not sure what! :) Merci!!!

  18. The lotus is said to induce forgetfulness, but Ms. Burnett's books are anything but forgotten, in part thanks to movie versions. :-)

    Beautiful shot, Daryl.
