Window Washers, Shanghai, China.

Back and forth, we go on planes, trains, and automobiles. Sometimes, the hours commuting come close to the time on the job. It is time spent listening to media, contemplation, agonizing reappraisals, and dreaming. Staring at the colorful world through tinted glass, wondering when and if we will arrive at where we are going.

In the shadow of the mighty Colon Cathedral, a three-piece brass band floods the air with its rich, deep music. Colorful and loud, it stands in contrast to the silent gray cathedral. This stalwart musician and his instrument unabashedly bring enjoyment to a passing crowd.

Dwarfed by surrounding skyscrapers, a steady stream of people hurriedly move through the peacefully quiet cathedral sanctuary at noon. A few set aside the busy, complicated world to pause in prayer. Spirits refreshed, they leave, disappearing into the busy adjacent streets.

Visiting a temple during a pouring rain, a young lady shielded by her umbrella stops to look at three ducks. The muted early morning encounter was accompanied only by water drops hitting the ground. A special private moment shared by man and fowl as refreshing as the rain.

Pleased with herself for breaking away from her mother, seated with family engrossed in a grownup talk at an outdoor wedding reception, this little girl bursts into a rapture of dancing! Living in her private moment surrounded by music, she twirls, jumps, and dances to an impromptu ballet. Remember the time when you danced as if no one was looking?

House Of Red And Bluegreen Rectangles, Kanazawa, Japan.

Taking a break in a small cafe from happily wandering the streets of Amsterdam, I turned my gaze upward toward the building across the street. Partway up the side hung this massive pair of mesmerizing bright red lips. My attention was broken by movement in the adjoining window. Until then, the person in the window had remained unseen. Even wonder how much stays hidden by things not moving?

Turning a corner, I stopped in the middle of the sidewalk, seeing this elderly woman crossing the street. First came feelings of sadness, pity, and wanting to lend assistance, which gave way to admiration as she slowly carried her morning grocery shopping. Stamina courage, resilience, adapting to change, determination, and pride are woven into the fabric of her old clothes, body, and soul. She is a survivor. And in these, there is much beauty.

A light rain quickly turned into a downpour visiting a gate of the wall surrounding the ancient part of Xian. Taking shelter under a wide stone arch, a daughter and her grandmother also sought refuge there. Both giggled as little girls for had been rained upon. Our differing languages never spoiled the moment, as the smile on grandmother's face was sufficient to bring sunshine to a gloomy day. Have you ever experienced wonderful moments when speech is not required?

Little Angel Daydreamer, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

For me, walks along a beach with the sound of the surf are wonderful respites. Cultural differences can be observed on beaches in different parts of the world. The West tends to be sun worshipers enjoying, among other pursuits, obtaining a tan. The thousands scattered about the miles of beaches in Vietnam huddle in shaded areas. When not in the shade, they cover their bodies to prevent their naturally light brown skin from becoming darker. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, seen through cultural lenses.
