The rain in Maine is driving us insane! We feel as if we're swimming with the fishes here in Portland after the continuous downpours. A photo of a fish seems appropriate, and this little fellow looks as if he's posing. Our friend, Jacob Williams, who is skilled in the art of Aquascaping, took this shot at his home in Mumbai, India.

A most sumptuous birthday feast in the meadow for our friend Lesley Austin - photo by her son, Caleb Austin. So that nobody feels jealous and we can all celebrate, we'd like to remind everyone of the Mad Hatter's tea party in the Disney film version of Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland:
Ah, but there are
Three hundred and sixty four
Precisely why we're gathered here to cheer
Why then today's my unbirthday too!
P.S. Check out Lesley's inspiring website, wisteriasunshine.com
The gnarly cherry trees in sight of the Jefferson Memorial in Washington, DC, as captured by photovoyant, Maureen Spagnolo. We couple this scene with a spring Haiku written by Basho during the 17th century.
Baby mice in their nest
squeak in response
to the young sparrows
The greens and blues of spring excite us with expectation! We thank our dear friend, photojournalist Maureen Spagnolo, for another lovely photo for our cover. We also welcome her to the Significato Journal as she begins her own column called, PhotoVoyance. More about that in our next newsletter!
Our dear friend Maureen Spagnolo, a photojournalist from Washington DC, has caught Deep Creek Lake in its many moods. We've paired it with a stanza from a Sara Teasdale poem.
"The leaves fall patiently
Nothing remembers or grieves
The river takes to the sea
The yellow drift of leaves."
- Sara Teasdale
“The Epiphany of Zebediah Clump”
