As good as any
I can clearly remember relaxing being easier
I was barefoot most of the time
I was young, 8 or 9 perhaps
I don’t remember it being particularly hot, cold or even wet
I remember the tambrin trees, mango trees and a large backyard
I can remember jumping from the second story onto pillows
There was a wet bounce house at a friend’s once
Pretty sure it was yellow
There are plenty of trees in this city, more in the park and along the river
Takes longer, and ain’t easy
Great story and photo!

Until the time changes, we will be forever chasing the sunset. We left a little earlier than usual and made it just in time. We walked, talked, and laughed all while taking pictures and taking in the beauty of the sunset and the nature all around us. Wednesday is by far my most favorite day of the week. I literally look forward to it all day Monday through Wednesday. I’m in love with date night but more importantly, I’m in love with this amazing husband of mine.
Beautiful pictures, such wonderful moments!

Monday through Friday, I see them. As I drive to work – 8:30am, with coffee just seeping into my sleepy cells – I pass them in my car. I don’t think they have ever seen me, but if I miss them for even a day, I become oddly bereft. They are my non-caffeinated morning pick-me-up. They are my Rainbow Warriors.
Every weekday, they travel down the sidewalk in a gang. None of them is younger than 50, and several are much older. The men wear vests and patterned peaked caps; the women are powerful hummingbirds buzzing under layer after layer of color. They all wear brown plastic sandals covered with dust. I think they are Nepali. I know they are beautiful.
Sometimes the women carry heavily laden shopping bags, the straps digging into their foreheads as strong necks bear the weight. Certain days, the men have umbrellas, although I’ve seen them walk through a light drizzle without opening them. Perhaps when you are constantly surrounded by living rainbows, you don’t doubt a rapid end to all storms.
I have tried to imagine where they go, always between six and nine people, always in a pack. Once, my timing was such that I saw them turn into a church parking lot, but the glimpse left me with more questions than before. The thing about them is, wherever they travel with such devotion, they radiate happiness during the journey. As they walk, I watch their faces change. I have seen beaming smiles, mock anger followed by a hug, the rapid smacking of lips in intense conversation. Are they family or friends? Is there a difference?
All I know is that the Rainbow Warriors feel like a gift from the universe. I don’t want to unravel their mysteries. I don’t need to know their stories or intrude on their lives. In this one small instance of morning time, about 250 days a year, I just yearn to see them beside the road. All I need to learn and be reminded of is there, in their walking and playing, talking and carrying, bright as jewels, old but young, headed wherever they are going with such serene joy.

This photo was featured in National Geographic’s 2010 photography contest. Such a beautiful picture, but it will become even more beautiful after this description provided by the photographer:
“This picture was taken in Tenganan Village, Bali (2010). Tenganan is the most famous Bali Aga (original Balinese) village and is located close to Candi Dasa in East Bali. A man was playing bamboo music to entertain a disabled child which is not his son, but he loves this child likes he loves his own son.”
What a truly beautiful picture!
