As I alluded to in Just Call Me Trixie, I love the sun.  A sunbeam, its warmth, the light.  My husband sometimes calls me Trixie after the little girl in the Hi & Lois comic.  

I was just going through the pictures of our trip to Goa.  In doing so, I noticed two things.   

I seem to like pictures or icons of the sun.  I took a picture of this gold sun in one of the shops along Colva Beach.  I now realised it’s very similar to a ceramic one I bought years ago in Cyprus.  The one from Cyprus broke a long while back so no longer graces the walls of our kitchen.  Maybe I should have picked this one up as a replacement. 


I also noticed my affinity for yellow flowers.  Yellow has always been my color of choice for roses, in particular.   Maybe it’s a reminder of the sun, how it is nourishing, warms us, is bright and so always seems to lift my spirit.

 Just now, this quote found its way into my inbox.    

What I know for sure is that every sunrise is like a new page, a chance to right ourselves and receive each day in all its glory. Each day is a wonder.   – Oprah 

Isn’t it!
