Estelea's Blog

French Mum, humanitarian, restless explorer and doer on sabbatical in Cebu (Philippines): one Attila in each arm, I am exploring the “toddlers safe” corners of the region, while trying to keep some room for Me.

Muses, the goddesses of my inspiration

This week photo challenge is to illustrate “Muse”, the subject(s) that keep me coming back… muse My muses are the colors of life, its warm smiles, the love signs I read along the way, like this smile from heaven

I feel inspired to feel we are (too slowly but hopefully surely) setting our society free of persecution and oppression of others. Like this week end, when we eventually celebrated the marriage equality in the States. Love is Love.

Wishing you all a week full of hugs and kisses 🙂

      THe first time ever I had seen a rainbow smiling. I have tried to find out any possible explanation, but nothing. One has to believe in Pixie dusts 😉

        It’s amazing. The scientist in me had to look it up: The circumzenithal arc or circumzenith arc (CZA), also called the Bravais’ arc, is an optical phenomenon similar in appearance to a rainbow, but it belongs to the family of halos arising from refraction of sunlight through ice crystals, generally in cirrus or cirrostratus clouds, rather than from raindrops.
        But I prefer to think of it as pixie dust.

    It was a wonderful coincidence to have the photo challenge theme match the U.S. Supreme Court decision, wasn’t it?!
