Laughter is the Best Medicine – 20200322


Dear JBRish readers:

During this time of increased anxiety, worry and isolation, I think it is a bit of a relief to sit back and try to find something to laugh about. This is not an attempt to provide humor in bad taste.

As you can see, there are others around the world who are trying to lighten the global burden by offering a smile or two albeit a small smile; perhaps just a grin.

Year of Yosemite (YOY) – Day 180 (Half Dome Plays Where’s Waldo)

Half Dome hides among other features

Half Dome is Lost among the myriad of structures seen from Olmsted Point

In the picture above it is difficult to pick out Half Dome from among all of the other features sticking up against the skyline at Olmsted Point. It is nature’s version of “Where’s Waldo.”

A casual onlooker who had no prior knowledge and no guides, but just pulled off of the road because of the scenic overlook, they would probably be hard pressed to tell what it was they were seeing. Half Dome is just another distant mountain.

Our iconization of certain natural wonders is all about context. We need to see the overwhelming beauty of a feature set in an appropriate environment. I suppose that is why we have picture frames for even the most beautiful paintings.
