Saturday Serenity v 2.3

Tags:

Version 2.3 has no bearing on anything.  I just wanted to put that in there.  Sometimes I have to do whatever my mind tells me to, I imagine that many of you are the same way.  I also occasionally have arguments with myself, which seems ridiculous because I already know where I stand.  Oh well.  That being said we’re not hear to talk about the many things that can cause stress throughout our day, we’re here to look at beautiful landscapes.  Or in this case, space-scapes.

I love space.  Not enough to become an astronomer.  I don’t want it to lose it’s magic.  I love the thought of it, the look of it, and the questions it presents.  Space is probably the number one mystery that we as a collective species wonder about.  Even if subconsciously.  I think Douglas Adams put it best-

Space is big. You just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mind- bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it’s a long way down the road to the chemist’s, but that’s just peanuts to space.

In fact, there is so much space in space, that we could fit EVERY OTHER PLANET IN OUR SOLAR SYSTEM between the Earth and Earth’s Moon.  Crazy Right?

So let’s see some space-

Halloween Earth Porn! – Saturday Serenity

Tags: ,

So it’s Serenity Saturday, but it’s also Halloween. It’s a great time to celebrate the end of a week and relax, but it’s also a great time to celebrate a tremendously fun holiday. I wasn’t sure which direction to go since I’ve already posted a couple of Halloween things. So today, we’ll be going back and forth from the best Halloween creatures to some of the most serene pictures of Earth. Why not?

Leprechaun

I personally think that Leprechauns should be cute tricksters, but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity for Gorgeous Ireland.

Ireland

These are some of the more mainstream monsters and typically from an Anglo-Saxon origin.  There are so many monsters throughout the world though, and so many beautiful locales that I could spend all day on Halloween Earth Porn.

Tell me in the Comments below what some of your favorite creatures are and where they come from!

Happy Saturday Serenity and Happy Halloween!

It’s time for a little peace and quiet. So I welcome you to Saturday Serenity. No I’m not referencing this excellent series-

firefly
Though I must admit, that series is ALWAYS worth talking about.
Instead we are trying to escape from the business of the week. The Monday thru Friday battle that every one of us go through. I’ve worked several jobs in my lifetime that varied greatly in scheduling, and even if I worked Thursday thru Monday there was something to look forward to on my ‘weekend’.

monday
Whether or not you’re gainfully employed, unemployed, self-employed or somewhere in between the day to day stressors add up and it’s important (not to mention healthy) to give yourself some time to relax.

relaxed
Being a parent, a husband, having a business from home, and writing takes up a lot of my time and I consider myself pretty lucky. Some people out there have so much planned in their days at any given moment that they literally have no down time for themselves. Usually those people aren’t enjoying the things that they’re doing, and they’re usually not the happiest person at the party. Always worrying about what comes next.

Stress-2

Don’t be that person.  The better you take care of yourself the better you can take care of others.  Believe it or not YOUR HAPPINESS MATTERS TOO.

It’s not time to lecture though, it’s time to lay back and take a deep breath.  Tell me in the Comments below what some of your favorite relaxers are.

Here’s a serene poem –

Serene by: Shantaya

On Saturday
The stress fades
I’m one with myself
Well at ease, home free
Propped up on the couch watching TV
Yogi, Bugs, Daffy, my well-known comrades
We meet again, put on a show friends
