Digital time capsules (2)

The sun burst forth this morning, after a gray start to the day. The mantel was brushed with soft light, and my eye was caught by a vase bought in Costa Rica six years ago.

I attended an education conference for a week. I then escaped the bureaucrats and drove along wild roads through the rain forest, onto the plains with dusty cattle ranches and beyond it all to the beaches where giant turtles come to lay their eggs. We missed seeing the midnight turtle parade, sadly, but after days of watching waves run wildly up empty, off-season beaches I saw this peaceful vase with its deep, rich colors overlaid with simple etchings that call to mind the country's lushness.
