V is for VISION


Never take your vision for granted.  Without vision, we would miss the beauty of all life around us.  Take a vacation, vanish from your office, grow a vegetable garden or be a visitor at the Vatican.  Pop in at a vending machine to buy a nice cold drink and enjoy it while sitting on your veranda,  Turn up the volume and vibrate to the sounds violinsVisit a vineyard, pick wild violets, or play beach volleyball.  You could even vow to volunteer somewhere over the velvet summer.  Without your vision, it would be awfully difficult to do any of this. I loVe to find a bit of nature and simply reVel in it.  Here's a sampling of one of my favourite spots.  Be sure to turn up your volume and enjoy it with your vision. I hope you agree with me that we live in a wonderful world.

  6. Oh Leslie, how beautiful! Your vision is absolutely the most beautiful slide I have seen lately! The surroundings of your beautiful house are beyond any "vision"I had!
    My entry is about Via Dolorosa, as I will still write about Israel till October.

  8. Yes, Leslie, vision is a sense that I appreciate and think about a lot, since there were issues with my eyes as a child. What a great verification of the many pleasures are sight allows us.

  17. love all your ideas on the "v" words, I need to come here before I do my blog!! Especially for x and z ...they will be hard! I enjoyed the video...good idea! we take vision for granted until it is gone...I have glaucoma. But having a great vision of life is important also.

  18. Loved creating my V post today. Thanks for the push!

  19. Oh, so true. I've been having vision problems for years, but so far they've been correctable by surgery. One of my best friends, however, just went blind in one eye because of a blockage in the blood vessel to the eye, inoperable.
    Sigh.
    You're so right about vision.

  21. Indeed - our world is most beautiful and appreciating our vision to view it is often overlooked.

    Happy Wednesday!!

  22. Well, i am back again, Leslie, having now watched your beautiful video all the way through. So nice to see your warm smile at the start, and "What a Wonderful World" was just perfect! I am curious to know who was playing the clarinet. The style was just right to complement the tranquil images! Finally, i do want to VERIFY that I understand the difference between "are" and "our" - I can VOUCH for that :)
