A Generation of Faith and Courage Lost

facebook. faith curageOne of my high school friends recently posted on Facebook, when I read it, I could not stop but to think that my friend Bev is correct. Our previous generation had a way of keeping faith during hard times from certain life events that can get the better of us at times.

We could say, it as a different time, things were different then, Faith along with courage I do not believe is lost due to different times nor generation time frames, but rather an individuals outlook on life and inner strength.  Perhaps, this is why Danny from https://dreambigdreamoften.co/  will often post or re-blog posts that have an inspirational and motivation value. I can not leave out Jessica Edouard from https://upliftingquotesdaily.com/ who brings us sunshine from time to time.

“It is my hope that love and tolerance will always win out of over hate and bigotry. it’s up to us to hold our leaders to a higher standard and demand that they govern with dignity, integrity and compassion.” Powerful message of unity for possible troubling times that may lie ahead of us!

Everything I Never Told You

Hello lovely ones. Just a few random thoughts from a chaotic mind. Firstly, I’d like to say that, I really appreciate everyone who takes the time to read and follow this blog. It means the world to me. I’ve connected with some really wonderful and talented folks. I’m grateful for those connections and I know that some of those friendships will carry-on for many years to come. Having said that, I will be cutting back on the amount of time I spend here. Life has taken on a very busy tone of late. I will still be posting but the frequencies of my posts will be more sporadic and sparse. My goal is to at least post once a week.

Secondly, I don’t want to get political but I will say that now more than ever, I am praying for our country.. It should be noted, I’m not even a…

You Want To Move To Canada? Yay!

So you don’t like Trump, you’re going to escape him by going to America’s 51st state. I like when you call us America’s hat, that makes you our shirt, cool, maybe grow some tits. People from everywhere are dying to get into Canada, but when they get here, it’s never quite what they expected. Before you go through all that time and effort, let me explain what you’re getting into.

You’re going to have to learn how to be polite! Try saying “thank you” once, just to practice. Also we say “sorry?” or “pardon?” when we can’t hear you, not “wut?”, we also say sorry to inanimate objects we bump into. If you don’t, people look at you weird.

Oh and the lovely french language, it’s so easy to learn, you’ll love it since it’s the only language spoken after work hours.

Oh no, he has a foyer in his…

Ran across this gem and well worth the read by this young woman with great advice when dealing with Racism!

Hi,

1468244747585

Let me tell you a story about a girl. A little brown girl who lived in a fairytale. Her favorite tale was Cinderella because Cinderella wasn’t born a princess but she had the qualities that could rule the world in peace. She loved Cinderella and felt like her because just like Cinderella she wasn’t born with a silver spoon in her mouth but had high dreams. However, this girl imagined that she was locked up in this high tower and someday she would get out of it and see the light of the world. She knew the world wasn’t how she imagined it but she wanted to taste, feel and see how it really was.

She grew up and while growing up she came to know the world was much more than what she thought. She saw happy colors and light around her but she realised it wasn’t all…

Back when I knew it all

Greenwich Lane

The first concert I ever went to was with my Mum. We went to see our favourite band Savage Garden at the Sydney Entertainment Centre. It was amazing and probably my favourite concert I’ve ever been to. The lead singer of the band is Darren Hayes and he penned a beautiful letter to his 15 year old self. I’m also inspired when I read the letter and it reminds me to not take things for granted, and to not dwell on the little things.

If I could tell my childhood self 5 things about the future they would be:

  1. The HSC exam at the end of school doesn’t and won’t define you. You’ll become a successful teacher and love your job. The HSC mark didn’t get you there, you won a scholarship where YOU got the chance to shine, not your essays
  2. Don’t take things so personally – those without…

The American Robin (Turdus migratorius)

This morning I thought I would share an image in motion.

It has been a busy few weeks so far at the home front. A 50th anniversary, a nephew-in-law moving party where I felt like a third wheel since I have limited use of my left arm and hand, yet did some minor cleaning. A virus removal on Deb’s Mothers computer, breakfast  tomorrow morning with Deb’s Aunt.

Come this August, will be going to see my grand Aunt Cris on my Dad’s side whom I have not seen since the mid 80’s. I will be in Denver, Colorado during the fourth week of August. I also hope to capture some great images while there.

The American Robin (Turdus migratorius)

Birds, Robins, Robin, American RobinThe first image most of you have already seen, yet I put it up on a photography group and is getting great reviews.

Sparrow Coasting

Sparrow,Sparrows, Type of birdsNow, these birds are small and fast, very difficult to capture, but with patients and a whole lot of luck – I caught it zipping by me in an empty field. A field I can no longer shoot in due to the paranoia of the planed Parent Hood that is across the empty field,  😦  It is what it is!

A Pigeon I do believe, but don’t really have a clue!

vulture, vultures, soringWhile I was trying to capture four military jets flying by, this one large bird was flying in the opposite direction, so I focused on this bird. I still don’t really know what it is. After watching “Defying Gravity” that aired on the Nova channel a couple of days ago, I believe it maybe a Vulture of some type.

 

 

gopher,gophersNot a bird, not that sharp.

 

 

 

 

I hope everyone enjoyed viewing the images,

Leave me feedback with your honest opinions about the images.
