the view from above


















































if the plane
had turned around
and flew back
to where we
started from,
it would have
been enough
just to see
this spectacular
landscape.

lunch at luna































































































































































it was one of those places
that i often walked by and admired,
thinking, i should go there someday.
the other day we did go in for lunch.
located in what was once a corner store
that sold vegetables, coca cola and pepsi
this cafe wins top rating for character and
ambiance. it was pleasantly busy,
with bustling neighbourhood activity outside.
we enjoyed our vegetarian wraps that
were delicious and satisfying. i look
forward to my next visit.
a bit enthusiastic with the photos,
what can i say, i liked the place.

a few signs spotted
around town,

repair televisions
these days?
i plan to
visit
the malta bake
shop.
farturas are
a portuguese
doughnut,
something
else to try.
i do not fear
friday the 13th.
happy weekend!

shopping centre blues



































































the occasions
that require a
visit
to the shopping
centre
are often
dispiriting.
usually i return
home without
the needed purchase.
this time
success,
but it was a
compromise.

cherry tree buds
almost ready to

into blossoms,
willow leaves
promising
to unfurl
any day
and the
water
still a chilly
blue.

may day


































happy may!
the first of may
greeted us
with showers,
where are
those flowers?
the blue
tabletop was
the biggest
dose of
colour today.
