Today’s image is of some bulbs starting to poke up through the soil, giving us all optimism of warmer days ahead. Nature’s cycle is pretty cool, and as things die off in the winter months, with nights getting darker and colder we know that there are better times ahead. I believe life is pretty similarContinue reading “Jan 8th….. Signs of spring?”
We attended the funeral of a dear friends father today, which led to today’s photo and post. There’s nothing more certain in our crazy world than death, we just don’t know when it will occur, so why not make the most of every day. The poignant eulogy at today’s service was also inspiring. As oneContinue reading “Jan 7th – One thing is certain……”
We travelled back from Cornwall earlier, after a house hunting expedition, and came across Bodmin Moor. With rain lashing down, gulls swimming in puddles and wild horses grazing, it made me consider how lucky ‘most’ humans are to have shelter, especially in the winter. However, the animals didn’t seem unhappy, so how come people getContinue reading “Jan 6th – Desolate”
Being by the sea, even in January, is so peaceful. Our 4 legged children met 2 of their Cornish cousins for a great run on the beach. Some beaches are closed to dogs in the summer, which I get for the popular ends, but surely some of the quieter parts could be used?
We came across this art whilst wandering through Perranporth, Cornwall. It’s made completely of rubbish collected from the beach. When you next visit a beach take a bag and do a little beach clean. I agree, we shouldn’t need to, but if everyone does a little the problem gets manageable.

Back to work day for some (thankfully not me). Going back to work after a break can be stressful, not helped by the time of year when we generally have dark skies, which led me to today’s photo. What do you see? Do you see dark skies, bad weather, desolate landscapes Or Do you seeContinue reading “2nd Jan,2020”
Day 1 of 2020 – Let’s work together to make this is a great year / decade.
I have set myself a new challenge of taking a photo every day in 2020. Any subject, but I want it to be thought provoking……..
I arrived on planet earth in 1962, and was raised in the suburbs of Bath, but I still think I’m 28!! I worked for Hewlett Packard for 33 years in various different roles, but one theme ran through those roles – Problem Solving – It’s in my DNA. Whilst on a conference call I heardContinue reading “A bit about me …..”
