Lulu and I went to the SA Botanical Gardens on Monday. I didn’t take too many pictures since I was practicing living in the moment. I did get this one shot from high up on the hill looking to downtown. A bit hazy but you can see the Tower of the Americas in Hemisphere Park which was built for the 1968 World’s Fair.

Here’s the wiki for some fun facts – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tower_of_the_Americas

Jotted for #JusJoJan. Follow the link to see the other fine photos:


J-Dub’s Review of “Before and After” by Judy Christie & Lisa Wingate

I finished in one day! That’s how good is this book. My new word “un-put-downable”. These are real-life stories of children used as commodities of a corrupt system. Georgia Tann was a monster in my opinion. Yet despite what happened, we see the human connection. These stories told from the adoptees POV are riveting. I’m glad the authors took that route by giving them a voice after years of being somehow less than. The psychology of it all is fascinating. I’m convinced now more than ever that people do the best they can with what they’ve been given. Flawed humans aren’t we all. Still triumph of the human spirit endures. Tears 😭 both happy and sad. My rating 5 out of 5 stars ✨!!

As always more to come.
