Good Morning All,
This weekday feature is for Juicers who are are on the road, traveling, or just want to share a little bit of their world via stories and pictures. So many of us rise each morning, eager for something beautiful, inspiring, amazing, subtle, of note, and our community delivers – a view into their world, whether they’re far away or close to home – pictures with a story, with context, with meaning, sometimes just beauty. By concentrating travel updates and tips here, it’s easier for all of us to keep up or find them later.
So please, speak up and share some of your adventures and travel news here, and submit your pictures using our speedy, secure form. You can submit up to 7 pictures at a time, with an overall description and one for each picture.
You can, of course, send an email with pictures if the form gives you trouble, or if you are trying to submit something special, like a zipped archive or a movie. If your pictures are already hosted online, then please email the links with your descriptions.
For each picture, it’s best to provide your commenter screenname, description, where it was taken, and date. It’s tough to keep everyone’s email address and screenname straight, so don’t assume that I remember it “from last time”. More and more, the first photo before the fold will be from a commenter, so making it easy to locate the screenname when I’ve found a compelling photo is crucial.
Have a wonderful day, and enjoy the pictures!
In keeping with tradition, I did try to load Bill’s old submission from a while back (seems like years, tbh) for today’s post, but it crapped out…which was something I recall, now. And so I tried another old submission from and it also failed. I think I remember this too.
So I went back through submissions and found this. Now I know some of you have made some great submissions in the past few days, and I’ll run them – next week! I’ve still got some housecleaning to complete; regardless of these errors, I’ve got a few to work through and so I hope to start with Bill’s old post next Monday (if the issue can be solved), and then begin working with some of these great new submissions after that. This week is working through some old submissions and some personal pics as well.
In light of losing my mom, I’m also planning a post sharing the detailed obit we passed out at the funeral and associated events. This will entail losing my semi-anonymity, and will be later this week. Given the academic bent of so much of the site’s readership, I expect a few readers will know of her, which would be amazing. I’ve always gotten such energy and love from folks she’s affected, around the country and especially around the world.
But first – as so many of us are dealing with cold and remnants of snow – let’s turn our gaze to the Big Island of Hawaii. Having spent almost 10 years living in rural, sunny, dry Southern Colorado, this looks very, extremely inviting, especially knowing there’s tons of fresh seafood available since you’re not land-locked but smack-dab in the middle of the Pacific. If that’s not heaven on Earth, I’m not sure what is.
