Trees and Terrace

Washington Dulles International Airport
Wall of trees overlooking the terrace

This was the view that greeted me as I arrived on the ticketing level of Dulles last week. The window itself is beautiful; it’s further enhanced by the terrace beyond. It wouldn’t be nearly as pretty if it overlooked a parking lot. Also noteworthy is the reflection of the window, greenery and sky on the floor, all serving to double this picturesque setting.

One Minute Holiday

Photo of the Day
November 23, 2011

Tomorrow is the Thanksgiving holiday here in the United States. Many people will be traveling. Others will be staying put and gathering with family and/or friends for the day. Regardless of where you’ll be, I offer this photograph as an opportunity to have a peaceful minute of beauty and reflection.

Thanksgiving is a day when people often think or discuss what they’re grateful for in life. An article in the The New York Times yesterday offered this on the topic:

Cultivating an “attitude of gratitude” has been linked to better health, sounder sleep, less anxiety and depression, higher long-term satisfaction with life and kinder behavior toward others, including romantic partners.

That’s plenty of reasons to be grateful. I’m grateful you’re reading this post and taking a one minute holiday. Let’s spread the heath benefits of gratitude! Share what you’re grateful for by using the Comment link below.
