This week’s theme is “TIME” … I was originally going to pop up the road and take a photo of a local building with clock face and flag flying, but the weather has been awful today, so it wasn’t worth going (and during the week I didn’t have shifts that were conducive to being home in daylight hours either). So instead I came up with the following …
Very wise words said many many years ago … “Take time to smell the roses” (Russian Proverb) – over the years I’ve come to realise how important it is to take time to enjoy the simple things in life, and everything that each day brings … These roses were from the flower markets in Hong Kong – I just adore how every single bud has it’s own protective packing!
Then just for fun, here’s my Dad dressed up as “Old Father Time” 😉
“Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you.” Carl Sandburg
Now here is one from the archives again … this time the subject is “WET”. I didn’t realise I’d brought this photo with me when I moved to Aussie, but sure enough I just found this during the week … a very VERY old ph0to of me when I was about 17 – on Christmas Day in NZ, wearing my brand new dress I’d bought for the occasion (I was working full time back then as a typist) – my cousin who was visiting from the UK very kindly threw me into the swimming pool, then to add insult to injury made Mum throw a bucket of water over me while he took photos … have to admit, it’s a great action shot! 😉
The next photo is me being stupid – sitting waiting for a bus at Nadi bus depot … in the middle of Nadi being flooded! I think I was in for a looooong wait! 😛
