A heart-shaped drop of sunshine (along with some sunlight yods, too) appeared out of the nowhere on this puddle of rainwater and street splooge just as Jake and I walked past. Made me gasp - with surprise as well as appreciation. Cool isn't it?

You can't plan for sights like this one. Thanks all you mysterious forces of nature, for putting this lovely montage together, then placing me right in front of it just as the sun peeked out from behind the clouds. Excellent! Superb! Divine!

Oh yeah!

I wish I had your eye!

That's why I love your photographs- I love to see what bits of beauty you have found to share with the rest of us!

Thank you!

Beautiful! Absolutely beautiful! Love the golden sunshine heart.

Aquarius Friday, May 16th, 2008 -- You could be in your visionary mode now because you have more ideas about the future than information about today. This is a great time to connect with other big thinkers to share thoughts about how to create a better life for everyone. This may not be very practical, but it enables you to dream of magical possibilities that can inspire you and your friends.

You inspire--with your writing, photos, thinking and musing
this heart of light was sent to you, I'd like to think, from all of us and from the universe.

You are much loved.

And thank you universe for bringing the moment to a blog near me.

Looks like a river as seen from the air instead of street splooge (did you make this word up???) Very cool image that I probably would have walked right past without seeing.

There is also a golden ring (call it what you will) shining above that heart and small hearts dashed among the incredibly beautiful photo....You could sell it...I would buy it....

Looks like some of the marbling I've done. Very nice shot.

Just looked up "splooge" at

E W W W !!!

I always thought of it as slang describing slightly gross goo, like baby barf or car oil marbeled by rainwater. NEVER KNEW THE REAL MEANING~!

I am not likely to use that word ever ever again!
