“Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn, a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter. If your mind isn’t clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life. —WU MEN”

My wonderful friend, David, captured this sunrise two days ago. Beautiful, isn’t it? Taken in Parkville, northeast of Baltimore city.

As someone who loves flowers, I naturally adore butterflies. I took these pictures of preserved butterflies at the Walters Art Museum in Mount Vernon. The butterflies of Maryland definitely lag in color vibrancy compared to those of Central & South America, but they are still pretty to look at. I might just be biased because it’s bitterly cold today, and South America sounds rather amazing right about now. Would be super stoked if someone in Central/South America saw this post, if you are there please leave a comment and let me know which country you are in. Thanks!



Prayers In The Wind

Prayer ribbon petitions for PEACE. These will catch your attention if you walk by the First Franklin St Presbyterian Church in Mt. Vernon. The architecture of this church is beautiful, I’ll have to take a picture of it one day and share with you all. Cheers!
