Serenity is the theme for Postcards for the Weekend #26. From our collection we're sharing a card featuring Winter in Switzerland, art by Fritz Reiss. Not certain, but believe the postmark is January 6, 1913. Check out other Postcards for the Weekend and thanks to Maria for hosting.
We will be the first to say the picture of the little hummer is not photographically great. However, it does capture a moment of serenity for the little bird. We saw this hummer perched on a tree branch just yesterday (Feb 25th). It seems too early for hummers to return from their winter homes so this little one must have wintered-over here. We rushed to get the camera because it's unusual for hummers to stay in one spot long. Zoomed to the max, this is the best we could do. If only we had a camera on a scope standing by.
Matson SS Maui departing Port of Seattle early morning Feb 25, 6:57 AM. There must be some serenity for the crew knowing they've completed the loading process and setting out on their voyage to Hawaii.
Lastly, a serene sunset on Feb 24, 5:34 PM. Be sure not to miss the sailboat near the lower right corner, which helps give a little scale to the scene.
Closing thought ...
Boredom is the feeling that everything is a waste of time; serenity, that nothing is.
