Surprise! No, your eyes do not deceive you, and yes, I am publishing a post a few weeks early!
It is spring break for me and while I am still busy creating lectures and grading papers for this new class, I actually have some down time.
Plus, I couldn’t resist posting for this week’s photo challenge Favorite Place.
For those who know me, I have filled my blog pages with images of Yosemite (my all time favorite place)…
…or the Sacramento Delta.
Although I have several favorite places, my heart now lies in Hilo, Hawaii.
Since that magical trip in January, the warm, tropical climate, laid back atmosphere, and shockingly green vistas have been calling me back. The above featured image shows the serene park setting overlooking Hilo Bay, while the image below captures the lush green plant life near the black sands.

Sunday Stills Revisited…Preliminary Plans for My New Feature
Apparently, I must miss blogging because I tend to dream about it. Last night I suddenly got inspired by the now defunct feature, Sunday Stills, a photo challenge hosted by Ed for several years. Notice there are no links because he hung up his blog and deleted his site.
My addled and sleepy brain managed to churn out an idea that I am playing around with, to bring back the Sunday Stills photo challenge with the help of a couple of photobloggers! If you are intrigued by this notion, shoot me an e-mail through my contact page. More about this in early April, with the plan to launch the feature in May.
For now, think about your favorite place and I look forward to reconnecting with all of you soon! I miss you all and I appreciate you stopping in to say hello!
