after more than five years... it's time for me to bid farewell...
snapped this before the rain clouds came... really windy outside. can feel it!

thanks to all you guys for the kind words and thoughts on the entry about my friend adrienne. i think she'd be happy to hear all of it! so... just to lighten up things a little bit. a couple pix from a boat trip when we managed to catch a good weekend about 3 weeks back...
went to big wave beach on sunday, bunch of things on my mind lately... and witnessed the change from blue skies to thunderclouds. i fell asleep under a blazing sun, and when i woke up, this is what i saw:
