But, I AM a survivor. The past four years, meeting many of you (first and foremost Renee) have taught me how to stand up for myself, to try not to be fearful...and to believe in ME.....and YOU..my true friends.
So, here are a few of the photos I have taken in the past week to prove just that....I AM moving ahead with my life....I am living it to the fullest while I wait to see what will happen to my home.
|Taken at the German Consulate last Sunday with Jay Hunter Morris, *Captain Ahab* in our current production of *Moby Dick* and *Siegfried* in the Met's HD Broadcasts.|
On my hike today - a foggy, drizzily day...
|Enroute - down the *easy part* of the Lyon Street Steps|
|Mr. Starling prepares to sings for me... (ah, I know, I should have recorded his song.....)|
|A ship appears under the Golden Gate (trust me, the bridge is there)...|
|Two of Lo's Ever-present Ravens atop Ft. Point under the Golden Gate Bridge....guess they felt the warning sign didn't apply to them! A-ha-ha!|
|The misty view from the Bridge...|
|The view from the other side....|
|A Tern, asleep.....look at that one-legged position!|
|I saw something I wanted to photograph..so I had to cross this little bridge....much to the displeasure of the Gulls! (Believe me, they let me know they were NOT pleased!)|
|Mr. Snowy Egret has an itch!|
|Pelican #3 closer....|
|Rare (at least for me, to see 2 Egrets together....perhaps Mum and Babe)?|
|Pelican #3..from the other side..he was so kind to wait for me!|
Enroute to the Lyon Street Steps and home.....I stopped to see Blanche and Blue Boy - the parents of the six Cygnets. They were hard at work - grooming! (My beloved Galahad - the grey Cygnet and his three brothers are no longer here....I found out what happened to them - and will post about it soon. They are ALL OK.)
|Blanche in all her glory...... It's *Swan Lake* and *Lohengrin* combined!|
Lastly...I came across the gorgeous lilac-coloured plant with it's carpet of fallen petals.... ah, so inspiring!
Posts will be a little scarce these days..between Opera performances....and waiting to see what happens with my home...well...I think you can understand. Please keep me in your prayers.
Love to each and every one,
