A different kind of #tbt to the time I first saw Botticelli's Birth of Venus and how it's helping me survive another snow storm:) (link to latest blog post in profile)

missmmccarthy Listening to the freezing rain fall outside my Brooklyn window, it's hard for me to believe just a few days ago I was on a boat, watching the Hawaiin Airlines Sydney Harbour Challenge, Sauvignon Blanc in hand. Le sigh.

missmmccarthy Rise above.

Loved my encore voyage to Hawaii & Australia. Now back to work in Brooklyn and fighting the good fight against Jetlag. What goes up must come down, but the view is usually worth the ride.

missmmccarthy Another #selfie says you? Aye, says I. Because.
Also, I'm totally smitten with @outriggerresorts. Seriously. (This was taken on my balcony while I marveled at the ocean and felt gratitude for a brief foray into warmth.)
That's a wrap on my #hawaii ventures! Next up: #Australia

missmmccarthy Fortunately, voyages have gotten less dangerous! Had an easy-breezy #hawaiianairlines flights to Oz. So happy to be back after 6 weeks away:) (Painting: The British Man-of-War St. George (Flaggship of Nelson) in a Gale 1808, by

missmmccarthy Last night. Walking through The Royal Hawaiian it's hard not to feel like royalty. So much history in this place. Today it's onwards to Oz...

missmmccarthy "And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about." -Haruki Murakami 1w
