Cloud Lightning

    I've always loved lightning storms. Many children are afraid of them, but I thought they were kind of amazing (and in fact, I remember making fun of my childhood best friend for her fear... I was such a nice kid... )

    When I was younger, my mom would take me out on the front porch to watch thunderstorms. I loved it. It made me feel brave and alive to be in the presence of nature while it was demonstrating its power.

The Symphony

 When I first began this blog, I had an idea for the name. I attempted to get it out of my head, but it stuck with me no matter how hard I tried to push it away.

 I gave in and kept it. When asked why, I had an answer ready for my decision. (Post Here) The explanation made sense, and it was 100% true --at least at the time. It was how the idea came to me, as well as the full meaning behind it.

But I couldn't shake the feeling that there was something more to the story that I somehow simply wasn't seeing.

Tidelands Park

I’ve written about Coronado before (post here), and I know I will end up writing about it again in the future.

Recently I decided to check out a section of the island previously unexplored by me: Tidelands Park (Official Information Here). Tidelands, which is located on the southeastern corner of Coronado, provides spectacular views of the San Diego Bay, city skyline, and even the bay bridge!

   Okay everyone, thank you for the patience as I rearrange the layout of my page! Everything has finished being shifted around for the most part. I still need to finish working on the pages at the tabs along the top, but in the meantime the contact page is finished if you need to get ahold of me.

   Also, I have added a new feature: polls! There are currently two located in the right column. They will periodically be changed, so check back frequently and feel free to add your feedback!

  Now that the major overhaul is completed, I will be back to writing more thorough/interesting posts in the next day or so!

Papal Ponderings

The appointment of a new Pope has been a matter of great interest for me. Considering that typically when one is selected he remainds in his position for many years, I did not anticipate another conclave any time soon. Historically speaking, the selection of a new pope has almost always been heralded by the death of his predecessor. While Benedict XVI is certainly well along in years, he does not seem overly unhealthy.

And yet he resigned, taking the entire world by surprise in the process.

By looking at my stats, it appears that I'm getting a noticeable increase in traffic! I suspect that most of it is a result of the link over on the Namibia Tourism site. I was recently contacted by them about writing an article. It posted today! The article (and some of my photos to accompany it) are located here.

More importantly though, if you're not here because you were already on their site, make sure to check it out. The Namibia Tourism Board (main site located here) is their national government agency responsible for providing information to potential visitors.

If you're considering a trip over to see why I was so captivated by the beautiful country, make sure to gather information first through that website!
