RELAX IN DECEMBER

 

Some get their relaxation by doing something adventurous,
or heart stopping like this Ferris Wheel,
a permanent feature of the Irvine Center, California.
One Word sun: Anticipation

 

 

 

 

Some feel relaxed when they know money
is in the bank. I only spend it:)
This is in the financial district, San Francisco.
It’s not so much the door that attracted my attention,
but how they choose to frame it.
Thurs. Doors

 

 

 

Others relax by by looking at flowers, or
reading books or research. This Mexican Coral Tree is found
in front of the International Library of the Huntington Library
Gardens. The flowers bloom, before the leaves appear.

At any time, painting is relaxing for me.
At Christmas or days following days
I paint a small 6 x 9 inch event
about Christmas,  to remind myself
who my gift comes from: the Creator.
(the actual painting is a little darker)
Why at Christmas? Giving my time is just a waterdrop
compared to he purpose of his coming on earth
to sacrifice his life, in our place.

Some relax by seeing and hearing the ocean.
This part  of the W. coast is in San Francisco.

 

 

 

Or, you can relax by taking some shots –
it seems like yesterday – while waiting
on lunch in a busy restaurant in San Francisco.

  17. Great shots, Jesh. I like the framing of that door, too. Your painting gives me a warm feeling. This morning I attended a winter solstice celebration that honored the Indigenous People and Celts. One of the speakers spoke about the spark within each of us. Your painting reminds me of that. Good Cheer to you! 🙂

  20. Beautiful photos showing several ways to relax.I can relax with a lot of different things and in many ways, but you won’t find me in a ferris wheel. My favourites are enjoying nature, photographing, blogging and listening to nice music.
    Wishing you and your loved ones a Merry Christmas.

    It’s interesting how we all have our own ways to relax. The ocean works for me, as does a hike in the open desert. Regardless, finding ways to relax is great advice during the holiday season. Merry Christmas and happy holidays!!

    1. Had to chuckle – imposing is the right word! The “good” side is that San Francisco’s financial district is much more attractive than the Log Angeles’ one! A wonderful Christmas to you and yours – one thing I already know about mine is that our Christmas meal is not going to be turkey! Many thanks for hosting your always interesting and inspiring way or hosting Thurs. Doors!
