I woke up to another beautiful Spring day, two in row. “The sun poured in like butterscotch and stuck to all my senses.” This is the song stuck in my brain:

1) The World In Pictures

2) Earth Landscapes from Space

This unusual landscape called Wadi Rum is in south-west Jordan, where mountains of granite and sandstone rise next to valleys filled with red sand. Some mountains reach 1,700 metres (5,600ft) above sea level, and many have near-vertical slopes. So alien is this landscape, it is nicknamed Valley of the Moon, yet nomadic people have lived here for thousands of years. It was declared a protected area in 1998. In the top-right of this image you can see circles where irrigation fields lie. Lawrence of Arabia, who fought in the Arab Revolt of 1917-1918, made frequent references to Wadi Rum in his book The Seven Pillars of Wisdom. A prominent feature of the protected area is named after the book and several of its sites bear his name (NASA)

3) You knows its a great day when the memories that visit you are thoughts of love. These words wandered into my brain, I played with them a bit. Poetry kicked started my day:

As the waves roll in
they the caress the shore

As the clouds roll by
then embrace the land

As my eyes kiss your skin
love swells my heart

As my spirit soars
its song fills my soul
