May the nights always be aglow
with the bliss of the day
with unharmed hands and feet
and kissed cheeks.

This late summer squash blossom is attracting lots of attention from the honey bees. They seem to be queuing up. And, if you could see further in, you’d find three more bees in the throats of the flower. Amazing!!

The sun rising up over Rose Bay on a Monday morning in September.
Above the the trees, over the bay, past the headland and through the clouds …

Have I mentioned that I have a passion for libraries? I do, you know. I am a card carrying member of my our local branch and seek them out whenever I’m travelling.
I think that the regard in which a community holds its public libraries speaks volumes about the place. 😉
ine my joy when lo and behold!, I wandered past this beauty….
ld not resist stepping inside … into this covered courtyard space or "promenade".
Designed to resemble the Roman Colosseum this main branch, on West Georgia Street, opened in 1995. The library itself is a nine-story rectangular structure which houses the usual library business – stacks and services.
surrounded by a freestanding elliptical, colonnaded wall. Here are reading and study areas which are accessed by bridges spanning skylit light wells. The library's internal glass facade overlook the glass-roofed courtyard.
space is formed by a second elliptical wall on the east side of the building and provides the entrance and, I suspect, lively and bright protection from Vancouver rainy winters.
utiful balance of form and function.
Very impressive, Vancouver!! I'd come back to visit any time of year just to further explore this library.
