Hopping From Paradise to Paradise:)

Roni Delmonico

Waldorf Astoria, Orlando Bonnet Creek, view from Room 507

We’re just back from vacation and had a long talk with our son about how beautiful it was. He said, “Mom… my friend Sarah said, It’s so cool that your parents just hop from Paradise to Paradise.”

What a lovely way of putting it.

Breathing deep again. Spring is nearly here. Blue skies, sparkly water, warm sunshine, big white puffy clouds. Paradise.

To All The Ships At Sea

Roni Delmonico

To all the ships at sea and to all the ports of call. To my family and to all friends and strangers.. This is a message and a prayer.

The message is that my travels taught me a great truth. I already had what everyone is searching for and few ever find: the one person in the world who I was born to love forever. A person like me, of the outer banks and the blue Atlantic mystery. A person rich in simple treasures… Self made. Self taught. A harbor where I am forever home. And no wind, or trouble or even a little death can knock down this house.

The prayer is that everyone in the world can know this kind of love and be healed by it. If my prayer is heard, there will be an erasing of all guilt and all regret and an end to all anger.

Please God. Amen

The flat, dull canvas waiting to come alive!

The flat, dull canvas waiting to come alive!

I look at every single one of the images in my library as a canvas where something magic might be hiding.  It isn't often though... that I decide to edit a single image in three different ways... especially when the photograph isn't spectacular to begin with.  But I have learned over time, to train my artistic eye to see these diamonds in the rough.  As a result, what was once dull, flat, and uninteresting, becomes eye catching, vibrant and alive, with just a little bit of imagination.  I think it's that same spark in me that allows me to take an old run down house, and turn it into a home. Somewhere in the depths of me, I know it's because I believe that everything is beautiful when viewed through the lens of gratefulness. I'd like to go back to this place, on a beautiful sunny day and take better photographs.  But the stormy days can be beautiful in their own way too, can't they?  I find them full of the kind of passion and drama that makes one linger.

Best Job In The Universe

Roni Delmonico

I remember laying on a chaise lounge in the sand on Disney's private island, Castaway Cay and thinking, man... that dude's got the best job in the universe.  We've had an especially difficult winter in Central and Upstate New York and I've been dreaming about warmer climates and the lazy days of summer quite a bit.  Instead, I took advantage of the warmth indoors this past week, to get things updated and refreshed around here.  If you're interested in reading further, you'll find an archive of all my past blog posts in the sidebar.

I think it's such a privilege to be able to work at something I love.  I ran across a terrific blog post today with a wonderful message.  You can read it here: The Size of Your Canvas. Sometimes weird strategies and constraints are what make for better productivity and creativity. And then, it's time for a mental vacation.:)

I want somebody to be the feelings all over my face...
