Monday’s Snow Clouds
Henry David Thoreau once said, “It is better to have your head in the clouds, and know where you are... than to breathe the clearer atmosphere below them, and think that you are in paradise.” Oh, yes, and by the way, we're still in the midst of January about as far away from paradise as one can get. Headed right for some nasty weather this afternoon, so why not take a slice of paradise from afar?
Looking for an exquisite gift for someone? Or were you always a National Geographic lover? Its photographs, the stories, or the faraway places discovered within its glossy pages? You must check out this new book by Tim Laman and Edwin Scholes, ‘Birds of Paradise, Revealing the World’s Most Extraordinary Birds.” I shall say no more. The front cover is only a smidgen of what you will see and learn about inside these stunning pages of photography and text. This is a keeper of a book to cozy up with by the fireplace and discover ‘the clearer atmosphere, and think that you are in paradise.’
For more information on purchasing the book, http://shop.nationalgeographic.com/ngs/product/books/new-books/birds-of-paradise you can also visit the authors’ websites at http://www.birdsofparadiseproject.org/ or http://timlaman.com/ to follow this intriguing story on ‘Birds of Paradise’.
