R is for .....

R is for religion – the bane of Christianity. Bowing, weeping, singing, sitting, standing, kneeling, chanting, raising hands! Meaning is lost and the lost find no meaning. Add a personal touch and everything blossoms with spirituality and God rejoices. (This is written in response to ABC Wednesday's prompt.)

Mystery, intrigue, adventure abounding in unfamiliar territory. Spending last winter in Costa Rica epitomized this experience. Armed with a limited Spanish vocabulary and no GPS, my husband and I learned the ins and outs of the country, the food, and the people on a trial and error basis. Waking to the sound of birds! Grooving to the Costa Rican music as the locals sang and danced to the rhythm while performing their chores. Monkeys, iguanas, and crocodiles that grace the beautiful green environ of this wonderful land filled with waterfalls and volcanoes. Mysterious sounds that fill the air.
This is in response to a "Mystery" prompt from the Theme Thursday blog.

A First

Our “firsts” always leave a lasting impression and form the basis by while all similar experiences are judged. Last week I experienced my first hockey game – Saint John Sea Dogs vs. Moncton Wild Cats. What a game – excitement, jubilation, kickbutt action, and thrilling expectation. It couldn’t have been better! The Sea Dogs won the night and I left the arena feeling exhilarated. Notice the woman in the background on the far left of the photo. That’s me, whooping it up with the rest of the fans. Sorry to hear they lost the Quebec League title this year, but their newest fan expects nothing but thrilling hockey come next season.

The letter "P". How much simpler can it be? P is for passion, people, pleasure, purpose, peanut butter, pebbles, paper.....! Things that shift the soul from the mundane to the exhilarating: tastes that speak of individuality and independence. Ode to the poppy and the petunia! Hail to Pachelbel and parables! Praise for the letter "P".
