“Rows and Flows of Angel Hair”

Clouds-privateI was sitting outside trying to get some sun recently, deep in though about my very dear friend, silently praying for my friend. I looked up and saw this amazing cloud with a silver lining.¬†The photo hardly shows the magnificence of the moment. ¬†Unfortunately I didn’t have my camera in my hands at that time. ¬†Nature is unstoppable in all its majestic beauty.

Our clouds do block the sun at times, and at times they also have silver linings.  I hope your cloud has a silver lining today.

I couldn’t stop this old Joni Mitchell song from playing in my mind. ¬†Here are some of the words.

“Rows and flows of angel hair
And ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons everywhere
I’ve looked at clouds that way

But now they only block the sun
They rain and snow on everyone
So many things I would have done
But clouds got in my way”

Both Sides Now, Joni Mitchell


little Buddha-privateFor the WPC I chose this photo. ¬†There’s a lot wrong with it but also a lot right with it. ¬†It was the way the sun was reflecting on my little Buddha that prompted me to take the photo. It works with the theme of “opposites” in a few ways. ¬†The tree is my little Bonsai tree. ¬†It is a new addition to the things I love. ‚̧ԳŹ



The daily prompt today is “Generation.” Interesting word. I was wondering exactly how long a generation is. Of course, I had to Google. Some say it’s 20 years, some say 25 years, and I saw somewhere that the Bible says it’s 70 years.

For myself, I look at it as decades. The children born in the eighties, for instance, are entirely different to those born in the nineties and so on.

By different I mean in the taste of music, the changes in education, different style of clothing and often a different attitude. Even the parents differ from their parents due to the “generation gap” or to my mind the decade gap. We are continually changing and evolving as the years go by.

One thing, though, we are still human beings no matter what the going trend is. We all need love, understanding and kindness, and most of all, open minds.
