French village, a small settlement on St. Thomas Island, Virgin Islands, Dec 1941

Picture perfect...can you smell the sea? Feel the soft breeze against your skin? Hear both the silence only the open water can bring and the busyness of life all around you?
Intrestingly enough, when this picture was taken, Pearl Harbor was either about to be bombed or already had been. Two island ports, one a haven the other in hell.
A Day in the Life of Serena
Song of the Day: Days Are Short by Arlo Guthrie. I've been drawn all this week to the Hobo's Lullaby cd. This album was a staple in my youth and has made me a lifelong fan of the amazing Arlo. He's coming to town in Nov for a show and I'm determined to get Darling Diva to the concert. Three generations of my family will be appriciating his music, mom, me and DD! Plus hubby, of course, who became a fan when he met me. :D
Sound of the Day: Frog songs. With all the rain we received yesterday, the pond next door has filled in making all the froggies very, very happy. They've been singing like crazy. :) Though I suspect part of their song is thanks for not being fried by the lightening! LOL The show was incredible and thankfully I got my computer turned off before anything could happen...that would be just my luck.

Quote of the Day: There are worse crimes than burning books. One of them is not reading them.
