THE END OF OF THE PANDEMIC, A NEW BEGINING?
Love is in the air, every sight and every sound
Love is in the air, in the whisper of the tree Love is in the air, in the thunder of the sea
Love is in the air, in the rising of the sun

I love the picture of the tree blossom. I sense your jubilation and joy and great expression of relief.
I trust you are well and in good health, keep smiling.
Thank you, yes I am fine, those trees are named Amapas, and are common in some streets of LA one particular street around the block where I used to live before retirement, it’s lined with them, when they bloom they look great.
Thank you James! 😊
True, dear Mr. Brigido! Let’s celebrate this positive movement of our life…while there is time for peaceful joy yet…
I guess the key words in your commentary are: “while there is time”
Thank you for the advice, its worth to keep in mind, Maria.
Best wishes, to you.😊
Oh, you are so wise, dear Mr. Brigido! True! It was a hint. As, unfortunately, there is too much per-war activity near the Russian borders & this time it is serious indeed. (It is between us, so you’d better to hide this comment of mine). 😊
It’s serious everywhere, so do not worry, we pretty much are aware of it.
Best wishes Maria. 😊
Love that pink flowering tree!
It’s a tree that grows wild on the deciduous forest of North Mexico all the way South to Argentina, it does well in Southern California but not natural of the region, but adorn some streets, and avenues in Los Angeles, like on my old neighborhood in Virgil Street, that when it blooms look gorgeous. but no longer live there since retired, a few years ago.
Common name used vary from region to region we call them Amapas or Amapa tree.
Thank you! 😊
Beautiful. Thanks for the lesson!
Beautiful pics to go with a beautiful song and prose.
Thank you Peggy, we appreciate your comment.
I guess we are all tired of the pandemic, and hopefully will have an end.
Best wishes to you Rosaliene,😊
I agree, Love is in the air. Hopefully spring is here for all, present and future. Let us indeed celebrate.
You said it Don, let’s hope this pandemic is over soon, and be able to go wherever, and not wear a mask!
Take care Don! 😊
Reblogged this on Szwedzka Polka and commented:
Jestem wdzięczna, że żyję.
Yes, I am grateful for this glorious gift, that is life, and thank you kindly for re-blogging it, is nice from you.😊❤
I’m feeling it! Sometimes suffering seems to enhance the capacity for joy and appreciation of beauty. After all these years, perhaps that message has begun to permeate my being and saturate the senses. Love and beauty… now there’s something to be grateful for.
Blessings to you, Mr. Brigido, and thank you for the lovely post and photos.
Thank you Debra, we are all tired of tis pandemic, and want to be back at what was normal a little over a year ago.
I kind of smile we become insensitive to the day-to-day, and I am surprised that a picture with a blooming tree had such nice response, where I grew up those trees grow wild on the hills, and you can see them blooming at the first seasonal rains, and they are pink, yellow , and white, and the hills look gorgeous when you are driving in the country, and you can see them briefly if only for some weeks, before the flower begin to fall…
This may give you an idea:
Thank you Debra for your comment, we appreciate it. 😊
I will do my very best to get into your positive, hopeful mood, Mr. Brogido!:) Thanks for the lovely japanese cherry tree and the inviting dishes! Keep, however, whatever you do, to the rules!!
Do not worry I hardly got out, and use a mask when I do.
By the way that is not a Cherry tree, it’s an Amapa tree, or Guayacan tree as it’s known in South America, it grows from Northern Mexico all the way South the Americas to North of Argentina, it’s mainly a wild tree, but can be cultivated and adorns streets and boulevards on some cities, it blooms once a year, and there are trees, that produce the flower pink, yellow, or white.
As a child I remember the hills of the countryside when traveling on the roads all covered by canopies of different colors, a beautiful sight.
Take care Martina, best wishes. 😊
Thank you very much, Mr. Brogido for having given to me the details of your AMAPA tree, which is absolutely gorgeous:) I must admit that I have never seen this tree before.
I hope that you have been vaccinated in the meantime:)
Stay well, Martina
On every region they are known under a different name, but Guayacan, Amapa, Rosamorada, Lapacho, etc. The flower does not last too long it falls after three, or four weeks at most, but they look great, after they just look like any other tree, not very interesting, but in Ecuador it seems they have tourist start going over there when it blooms, the downside, it seems they only have the yellow kind:
Yes, where there is love there is life. Good day to you, my friend.
Thank you Jo, best wishes to you.
Wonderful! There is nothing like a tree in blossom framed against a rich blue sky that lifts my soul so!!
Sure it does!
Loving life feels good, to me as well.
I just had the first dose of vaccine a few days ago and surgery a week before that. It feels like I can really love everything again now. It was very tough for a week or so.
Very positive and uplifting post. All the best to you!
Hope your surgery recovery goes well, Inese, and hopefully with massive vaccination, we can move forward, away from quarantine, and it’s handicaps, has been a tiresome nuisance, and to many lethal, and a mayor problem, Worldwide.
Best wishes as well to you. 😊
Thank you for your nice comment.😊
The future seems better than in a long time – at least when it comes to being released from the prison of a pandemic. So yes, let’s celebration love and being able to love again.
We live in hope of things to turn for the better.
Thank you for your comment Otto.
It is a very re-birthy kind of feeling, isn’t it? Those of us, the lucky ones, who have survived, maybe who even haven’t gotten sick…it’s an immense feeling of gratefulness and relief and hope as the light at the end of the tunnel grows larger. Alive to love another day, love for the first time, change, become better, perhaps…? 🙂 All is possible!
Well I guess for those of you who where tested and did not come positive, and never got the virus, over here no one got tested, unless admitted to a Hospital gravely ill already, testing had to be paid of your own pocket, and lines where long, and most people figured out if you did not have the virus, waiting in line, you will get from the people on the line who may tested positive.
I probably got it from my son who experienced symptoms, on my case it was very mild, and kept to myself during a long period, but have friends, and relatives who got very sick, as one of my daughters, and my sister, some friends did not make it, and guess we all knew of people who died.
Its over two months that I do not hear of anyone getting sick, and since vaccination it’s on the rise, so I assume, things are getting better, so I hope. 😊
I’m very sorry for your losses, B.H. I’m glad you pulled through. Yeah, a few people we know got VERY sick and almost didn’t make it, and some acquaintances did not make it, but luckily for my husband and I, neither of our family members have been stricken badly.
We had a strange “cold/flu” back over the holidays with weird enough symptoms that we’re wondering now if it was the virus. For example, something that’s never happened to me in my life–I had intestinal distress all day then later at night it all moved to my right lower abdomen into such an intense pain I thought I was having an appendicitis! Temperature went up, could barely move, only sit in the chair a certain way. We were poised for hours, trying to wait until the last minute to go to the hospital, because we didn’t want to be in the COVID environment, you know? Then it all just started to disappear, and eventually I was fine.
We don’t know if it was the virus or not.
But at this point (apart from India, and someone I know in Columbia says things are bad) there seems to be less infections, less deaths the last few months….
Well, I lost a few friends, and acquaintances, fortunately not a close family member. I believe most people already had a contact with the virus, and as you, and myself had a few symptoms, myself got a clogged upper nose every morning, when woke up, that lasted until I would start to walk, but it lasted over a month.
Hopefully will not have a recurrence.
Thank you for your comment Stacey, take care. 😊
Love is in the air ….I remember that song!!!
Di nuovo primavera la natura è più forte della pandemia Io sono stata forte in questo anno e mezzo ma ora che la vita sembra tornare alla quasi normalità io mi sento stanchissima priva di forze.
Sento il sole tiepido di Roma e vedo gli alberi fiorire però ho bisogno di capire come fare a tornare a respirare.
Ci sono ancora molte restrizioni in Italia.
Ti mando un saluto è una fotografia bucolica con la mia Sally
Well, dear, restrictions are observed here as well, but has become a mechanical thing, and few really follow the rules, as in the beguiling, in fact since a couple of months I have not heard, of anybody getting sick, or died, to me that’s a good sign, and sure it’s Spring, and so far a beautiful early May, like in your picture with Sally.
Best wishes and enjoy life. 😊💖
More than 30 people died today only in Rome…
Enjoy you too🌹🐶
Well..pollen is in the air in my world….but vaccine allows me to mix it up and sample the various pollens of surrounding neighborhoods so I’ve got that going for me, which is good. 😉
I should say I have asthma…pollen is my nemesis but it’s still great to get around more.
You are like a bee, that can get around the flowers, but cannot do the job of carrying the pollen, you get the fun, of coming and going, but do not need to do the work. 😉
I am glad you are out of danger already. 😊
I am celebrating tonight with three fully inoculated lady friends!
I am glad you are, specially if you are safe. 😊
We had fun being ‘normal’ for a change.
I am glad you did. 😊
I have just realized that I havn’t heard from you for some weeks and I just hope that everything is ok with you Mr. Brogido:):)
Thank you Martina, I am fine just busy with life, as usual.
Best regards to you.😉
Muy jocoso, que malo que no esta en Ingles!🤣
