Welcome to the Island Rambles Blog

Welcome to my blog world. This is a photo blog, poetry and short story blog about my life on Vancouver Island, B.C. Canada. I take photos of the birds and scenery I find. I hope you enjoy your time here and please come back again. PHOTOS WILL ENLARGE IF CLICKED. The photos are slide show enabled if you click on them. If you click on the top lighthouse photo it always takes you to the most recent summary list of my postings. I am also at my Facebook Page Island Rambles or Islandrambles at YouTube.

Beaver Lake Reflections

Today I am linking to Weekend Reflections with pictures from Beaver Lake.

Good Fix for Blogger LightBox

There is a good easy fix for Blogger LightBox now at Blogger help Rollup.  It was made by some Italian bloggers, given to a French girl blogger and then a Russian added some language to it, now someone in the USA has it  and seems to work! It still is in French I think, uses "sur" for "of". I don't want to put code in here but will help if you want me to.  Leave a comment.

Kindness for You

We are keeping a keen eye out here for our migratory birds to come in.  This is the time of year that we see some of our birds return to this area.

It is "k" week at ABC  meme so I will toss in some kind of "k" words and photos for my kind-hearted and kindred friends at the ABC Meme and some birds for the nature and bird memes.  And a few more quotes!

Today's quotes are on Kindness.

 Above are pictures of Koksilah River, Vancouver Island.

This is Kennedy Lake above. And below are several
pictures from Kelsey Bay, B.C.

All about Joy

Being is as important as Doing in this Journey 
Start a Journey with Me:
It is "J" week at ABC Meme so here we go with some "j" words for this journey today. 

 "Let your mind start a journey thru a strange new world. Leave all thoughts of the world you knew before. Let your soul take you where you long to be...Close your eyes let your spirit start to soar, and you'll live as you've never lived before."
Erich Fromm (Photo is of a beach on the Strait of Juan de Fuca) 

The Cosmic Journey:
"We are travelers on a cosmic journey, stardust, swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share.This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity."
Paulo Coelho

Impossible Life

"Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead."  Louisa May Alcott.  (These are our sunflowers in the garden last year, they were supposed to be small.)

Human Life Explained

How is Human Life Explained and Accelerated and Improved?

How do I alter my mind to be faster and greater and then preserve it. How can I create a hard drive in my mind that never fails? ..and also is portable to move around.

(Great Horned Owl baby)

How can I continue to exist?  How do  I download my mind and my self into my Google blog and will I then continue to exist?
