Fave Five: Living to  Tell the Story  /  Shine the Divine

October has been very eventful. Stress and joys, adventures and challenges, you name it. It's wonderful to have the chance to express gratefulness for making it through this final week of a beautiful month.

i. Surviving a task at work on finance/statistics: not my expertise but I did it.
ii. Another world landmark off the bucket list. Taj Mahal is quite a love monument.
iii. Angel friends: geographically distant (Canada) but willing to stick it out in their iphones the whole night to give emotional support.
iv.  Kiddo in church with minimal adult supervision. The singing ministry does him good.  
v. Mom's back at home after fighting off inflammation of the lungs and heart successfully. Now I can breathe.


  1. Superb shots. Good to know you were in India.

  2. The Taj Mahal is a beautiful building !

  3. To be able to walk on ANY side of the Taj Mahal would be a dream come true for me....wow...beautiful.

  4. Let's hope November is less stressful for you.

  5. What an eventful month! The Taj Mahal must be marvelous to visit. I'm glad your mom is doing better and your son did well in church. Glad, too, your task at work went well and you have friends available by phone for support.

  7. pretty sky in sepia and the water lily reflection is great.

  8. I have been there and a very beautiful building. Great reflection

  9. Beautiful photos! I'm glad your Mother is doing better, and I hope she continues to heal.

  10. I came for your weekend reflection participation, I stayed for the other ones... This view of the Taj Mahal is terrific ! I'm very fond of the macro you did for shine the divine : I a book reader, and I'm always so happy to encounter people who share this passion. I didn't read all the title you propose on the pic, beside 1984, but it make me curious... Have a nice week-end !

  11. It is a beautiful building and sky! Great captures.. Happy weekend!

  12. Hi Hazel,

    Oh, I've missed you! Glad to learn that kiddo likes the music in church as my son is in charge of music at his church! Best wishes to your mom.

    Isn’t it fun finding blues to share? Thanks for playing today.

    Happy Blue Monday!

  13. I'm so glad to hear your mom is ok! And good news about your son loving the music ministry.
    Taj Mahal! Congrats on getting there!

  14. The Blue Lotus is sooo pretty!
