RDP” Inspired Carpet

Sultan Ahmed Mosque in Istanbul Turkey. It was a rainy day but inside you could not but be inspired by this lush carpet. Take off your shoes, breath deep your gathering thoughts and wander to a world far away.

Today men still kneel in prayer on the mosque’s lush red carpet after the call to prayer.

Octopus

Ragtag Daily Post

Well they told us that we would be experiencing something unexpected for dinner. After all we were in Japan so almost anything local would be something we would not find on an American menu.

But Octopus????

2021 Civil Rights Tour

Staring what I call my Civil Rights Tour which will include stops in Montgomery, Selma, Birmingham, and Tuscaloosa Alabama, Sumner Mississippi, Memphis and Nashville Tennessee.
But we stop first in Plains Georgia to visit the birthplace of our 39th President, Jimmy Carter.






We stayed at the Plains Historic Inn in the 1970 Presidential Suite  

 

The Essence of Her

The counter space reflects her busy life even as we emerge from this devastating pandemic. The two purses are used for specific purposes which I have never understood. I cringe when she ask me to bring her purse. I invariably choose the wrong one.


The two medical cards with our medications are placed where emergency personnel can find them. I have asked myself a few times if the paramedics will even take the time to look, much less read, them.


There’s the business card from the landscape company she is trying to reach because there are brown patches in the yard. I hate to tell her that the brown spots were probably the result of her using way too much Roundup. But I stay quiet.


The colorful luggage tags are for our upcoming trip to Alaska. No international travel for us this year. She has purchased two new sets of luggage to go along with the six suitcases in the garage. I only need one.


There is a picture of me with my beret sitting in the airport in Dublin. It’s her favorite photo of me. I don’t argue with her.

Some day I will have to clean off that counter.

Reclining Buddha A reclining Buddha is an image that represents Buddha lying down and is a major iconographic theme in Buddhist art. It represents the historical Buddha during his last illness, about to enter the parinirvana. He is lying on his right side, his head resting on a cushion or relying on his right elbow, supporting his head with his hand.
