A Life Quest

image

In life, a quest might take us on unexpected paths, with possibilities that are open, wide or endless, or  narrow and constricted, limiting our options.

The difficulty is to breathe in, and squeeze through the narrow tunnels of life.
It is then we can fully appreciate the exhilaration of achievement and persistence on the open road.

The longest journey begins with the smallest step

We are hell bent on building walls……

In an increasingly unpredictable and uncertain world, Andrea has so succinctly written how many feel in their hearts.

Something to Ponder About

 

I am not a silent poet

A foreigner said to me
Fish or cat?
Mouse?

Who am I to tell him
we are watching Picasso and
man is no fish
neither are we cats
mice perhaps.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Forces of Nature

Coolangatta Australia
Snapper Rocks, Coolangatta, Australia

 

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Forces of Nature.”

In Australia, a country aged by the wind, sun and sea, we see many examples of nature’s work and Forces of Nature.

I am drawn to the sea, as most of us are, who cling to the more hospitable coastal regions of Australia for hearth and home.

The limestone structures that survive, here on Australia’s southern coastline, defy wind, rain, tempest and frothing sea and are an example of natural endurance against the continual pounding of the ocean and are geologically, if not also aesthetically, interesting.

Photo 101 – Bliss, captions and Solitude -Rule of thirds

skarrild

 

 

There’s a new photographic challenge on the WordPress Blogging University, explore the tag photo101 to find out more. This photo addresses four days beautifully. This photo was taken way before the photo challenge existed and it seems I followed the rule of thirds.

For me, most of Denmark and lots of Scandinavia is embodied in the word “Bliss”  and scenes like this encapsulate the atmosphere I feel in the Danish countryside.

This is the place where my great grandfather was born. There is a salmon ladder here and the red building is a water mill that dates back to a time in the nineteenth century when a ‘fabrik’ or cloth factory was located here. The factory was run by the Larsens and made uniforms for Danish soldiers battling their southern neighbours!

Those days are long gone and the factory building is now a teacher’s convention centre, and the grounds are used for picnics and recreation. I think great grandfather and his family would find some bliss here!
