Searching for Paradise, Menorca

I am so glad to have a camera. I’m not a professional photographer but, thanks to the critical eye of a constantly disapproving parent who was, I can snap a decent photo.

Being able to record the world around me, as I see and experience it, allows me to revisit unforgettable moments of pure ecstasy and transcendent joy. The kind of ecstasy and joy that accompanies the overwhelming realization that the universe of our planet is truly vast, beyond our wildest imaginations, and full of surprises.

The blue-green of the ocean that hugs the coast of Menorca is the color of my heart.

Men make their own history, but they do not make it as they please; they do not make it under self-selected circumstances, but under circumstances existing already, given and transmitted from the past.

All that is solid melts into air.

~ Karl Marx
