My son never likes his pictures taken. We were at the pool and as usual didn't want his pictures taken. So he covered himself up in a beach towel. I stood by, quietly and patiently. As a typical child, he couldn't resist lifting his towel to see if I was still there. This is one of… Continue reading Moment & Motion

Moment & Motion – Step Afrika!
We went this past weekend to Virginia Museum of Fine Arts for Step Afrika! According to VMFA website, Step Afrika! is an internationally acclaimed step group that will make you literally feel the patterns in the rhythm. In stepping, the body becomes an instrument, creating intricate rhythms and sounds through a combination of footsteps, claps, and… Continue reading Moment & Motion – Step Afrika!
Natural World and Leading Lines
I love Eastern Redbud! I have 4 in my yards. The pink blossoms signal the beginning of the Spring after a long, cold winter. The leaves are a lovely heart shape. And I just found out that the blossoms and the pods are edible! You can read the article here. I will give the muffin recipe… Continue reading Natural World and Leading Lines
Be a Good Neighbour
Did they read my mind? I just left a few, more than 4 comments on several blogs today! And I realized that I truly enjoy leaving comments, more than writing my own posts. And I came across a few amazing blogs with content and pictures I enjoy and admire. Thanks, Blogging101!
Rule of Thirds
I really like this tip. Rule of Thirds makes objects pop and at the same time does create that unearthly loneliness that draws your eyes to the subject in the photo. I happened to be putting what I have learned on paper into practice at the pool yesterday. And I liked this one a lot because… Continue reading Rule of Thirds

Blogging is writing, putting words together and engaging conversations with other bloggers. Photography attracts human eyes and break up the boredom of the black and white of the words, and give eyes… Continue reading Hello Neighbours!
Yin and Yang of the Water

Ocean always intimidates me and every time I step into the water, I can't shake off the anxiety that I may be drowned at any moment. I… Continue reading Yin and Yang of the Water
The Plain White House and the tree-lined street
As the title says: plain white house. I am not happy with this one. However, I made a mental note to take another one when I am out and about next time. This one as you probably guessed, was taken inside my car! Off to the next assignment: water!
Take Control of Your Title and Tagline
OK. Day two assignment. I am getting a little bit of overwhelmed already :-(. The title of my blog is actually my company's name: Puressential Aromatherapy. The tagline is: therapeutic plant essences in synergy with body & soul. The tag line reads a little bit encrypted. Maybe I need to add something explaining what the… Continue reading Take Control of Your Title and Tagline
Hmmm. I have never given it any thought, honestly. I have been taking it for granted. So what is home? Home is where you can see the blue sky among the soaring trees. The fluffy white clouds. Home is where the pretty blossoms delight your eyes and lighten up your soul. And you said to… Continue reading What’s Home?
