Smell The Flowers

Beautiful flowers. 


G-d made them for us. 


Soft petals. 


Magnificent colors.


Fresh sweet smells. 


The sound of rustling in the wind. 


Absorbing the rays of sunshine.


Drinking the rain water. 


Planted in the soil of the earth. 


Magical flowers of life, love, and peace.

Beautiful Tutim

Love these strawberries (i.e. Tutim) from Israel. 


(Hebrew classes are paying off…)


Large, red, and sweet to eat. 


They look so appealing and delicious. 


G-d’s beautiful fruits (and vegetables).


What an amazing world He has created for us. 😉

Amazing Cuban Art

I never knew about Cuban art until we visited Cernuda Arte gallery in Coral Gables, Florida.


They treated us like royalty and gave us a personal guided tour of two buildings filled with works by Cuban artists still at home in Cuba and here in exile. 


This was better than many museums that I’ve been too. 


I just want to thank the gallery owners and our guide for a wonderful showing and tell them how impressed we were with the art there. 

Even while the Cuban people are repressed by their dictatorial leaders, there is so much of interest in Cuba: from their colorful colonial architecture to their cool “oldie cars”, renown cigar smokes, some pretty talented artists, and I’m sure much more. 


Cuba is only 485 miles from the USA!


I pray for the freedom of the Cuban people. 😉

Flowers and Bird

Just wanted to share this beautiful painting from Reuben in our synagogue.

I love the plethora of colorful flowers in the vase.  

The sweet bird with it.

The verdant green background. 

The unique etched wood frame. 

Very happy…and all the world is okay.  😉

Cats of Israel

Just wanted to share these photos of some lovely cats from Israel.


There are so many cats just roaming the streets, shops, gardens, and alleyways.


These don’t run from people, but are part of the landscape itself.


Almost like a soul in each one that is living a peaceful life anew in the Holy Land. 😉

See You Later Florida

Love coming to Florida. 


Not a far flight.


Sun shines bright.


Water is blue. 


Birds, fish, and animals like a zoo. 


Nature is peaceful.


Shopping is plentiful. 


Activities day and night.


Swimming makes me feel right. 


Go to the beach.


Eat a peach.


Florida is the place to be.
