I watched this line for a good half an hour yesterday.  If someone had asked me to spend half this time doing it, I would ask for money for the “pain”… or more honestly – I would have said I’m too busy.  Now that I’ve done it, and  thoroughly enjoyed it, I would pay to have the same simple pleasure again. Different birds were landing and taking off, disappearing into the blue sky, or the tree nearby.

Life can be very simple…  We just forget to keep it that way.


  1. 🙂 can totally relate to your thought and experience! ‘what is life full of care, if we dont have time to stand and stare’!! 🙂

    LOL. You’re probably right. All that football took it out of me 🙂 Time to watch more sport to get the balance up again…

    Thank you 🙂
    I try to “control” what goes on this blog. My rule is one photograph per post (sometimes I break this rule) and I only offer a larger image if the photograph comes out nice – or if a detailed look is required. The last example is the one of Sandy our dog.

    Thank you. You’re right.

    I can’t write to save my life. You have to find your passion, in my case photography, and the words will suddenly start to come. This blog pushes me to keep looking for opportunities.

    Thanks for visiting. Please keep coming back.
