Golden moments

I’m feeling a bit exhausted and overwhelmed (apart from worrying about my daughter during the terror attack, I also got a phone call that Sir Pe had broken his leg in a parachuting accident this weekend) —

Golden1.jpg

So, I’m taking the week to relax and renew,

And to follow the words of Longfellow:

Do not delay,
Do not delay: the golden moments fly!

I will not be visiting blogs this week – but I thank you in advance for your comments.

    Those golden moments, with those soft landscapes, are a fortune, it is gold for the eyes. Sure, with your good photographs.

    If it’s any consolation, a grandson is in a back brace from a broken backbone, and his sister sprained her knee and is hobbling on crutches. Oh, vey!

    I can so identify with your feelings at this time, Fiona. With all that’s been going on in so many parts of the world, I too feel overwhelmed and exhausted. I have a very close friend in the UK, and was extremely concerned about her after the attacks in London. Several weeks ago, I was seriously thinking about not blogging for awhile because I am at a loss for words to say anything right now because I’m feeling so weary about all the violence going on in the world and my feelings are all over the place.

    Take all the time you need, my friend. We will be here whenever you return. As always, BEAUTIFUL photographs!

  31. Yes you better de-stress. The world has been experiencing both natural and man-made destructions, and that include some country’s president and our own! By the way, my town has been the epicenter of the last Apr 8 earthquake, and previous to that on Apr 4 the epicenter was in an island next to our town. People are scared including my family. I will be going home this holy week to also see some literal cracks in the wall and the floor of our newly renovated house. OMG. Thanks, and take care.
