It's amazing that waterdrops on a leaf can look all gritty and industrial.

Since there were no water drops last week, this week I thought there should be a large number.

Poppies this week for water drops. Yes, January is spring in California, although only the most cosseted poppies are this far along.

More frozen water this week -- an interesting combination of frozen drops, and frost crystals.

The frozen ones are all from Gamble Gardens, which seems to be in a local cold spot as it pretty reliably has frost even when the surrounding area doesn't.

Water drops on a flower, gone all abstract and mysterious.

This week's water droplets are en masse again, this time as clouds. This was taken from one of Palo Alto's lovely public cloud viewing platforms, which are used as parking structures during weekdays. (Webster/Cowper is my favorite; High/Alma has better views of the nearer mountains but is more often crowded.)

It didn't seem that cold, but apparently it was; frozen water drops again this week.

I have played Jingle Bells of many languages for folks at work. I have only Mandarin, but one of the Mandarin versions did evoke pleasant memories for my Chinese colleagues. The track labelled "Jingle Bells (Persian)" is in Farsi, but it is the words to "Happy Birthday". The Tamil version is in Tamil, but the available Tamil speaker said dubiously that perhaps it was a very literal translation, because it was just wrong somehow. The Urdu version he identified unhesitatingly and when we looked at him funny he said "My girlfriend is Urdu" and we had to explain that we were puzzled because the words were still in English at that point. The Japanese version caused one of the Chinese speakers to exclaim "So kawaii!" while the Japanese speaker said "Well, now, that's modern."

The Klezmer version was the farthest out of the ones for languages actually represented in the room, and much to Opal's dismay I did not play the farting version.
