LACUNA MATATA! - Scavenger Shot

On our honeymoon, my husband and I went to Alaska and visited some of the most beautiful country we had ever seen. This flower, nestled in the crag of a stone wall, caught my eye as we climbed an overlook in Sitka, Alaska. (More pictures of the scene at the bottom of this post.)

Lacuna means a missing part, a gap, or air space. Not only is lacuna the tricky word of the week (thanks to yours truly), it is also the name of the company that erased Jim Carrey's painful memories in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. You can still visit the company's website, where you are invited to take a quiz to see if memory removal is right for you!
