Pushed to an extreme, the lack of ornamentation becomes picturesque, the sheer desolation of plain form. Sometimes windows reflect the sky, or light accentuates the colour of a wall. Little moments of beauty happen in the attentive eye of the beholder.
After a long winter, which most agree was psychologically difficult due to the endless snow storms and unusual weather events, Easter Sunday was the idea occasion to celebrate the beginning of spring. In many gatherings, wine and various beverages added beauty and relaxation. Metaxa is a distilled liquor from the Mediterranean region.
Tragedy struck Esmerelda over ten years ago. Angels took her younger daughter Ann. Ann got run over by a car when out bicycling, at the age of fifteen. There was something special about Ann, right from the start. She had trouble concentrating. Her head was in the clouds. She rode through a red light. An SUV flattened her. Blood bubbled out her ears. Blood mixed with saliva and flowed from her mouth. Esmerelda saw it. Esmerelda was seventeen when Ann was born and sixteen when she gave birth to Julie.
Lohbado went to the marital aids store to try and save his relationship with Esmerelda. This was just before he met Dr. Jane Wormsly. Esmerelda had an esoteric streak. She founded the Rainbow Translation Company for a while, then booked off after a nasty infection infiltrated her wall of protection. Something from the outside got into her body. It was time to quit the business anyway. She had enough to buy rental property and live off the assets. She could do psychic appointments to cover luxury expense. She had a fabulous art collection. The local artists loved her.
It felt good to go out after the past few days of intense air pressure changes. One day it felt like summer, the next like winter. Today Lohbado went to Bibliotheque Nationale at metro Berri Uquam. It has a decent collection of books, movies and music. It's a very popular place for people of all ages and interests.
While walking here and there, Lohbado takes photos with his pocket camera, interesting visual arrangements.
