Eternal lover

Who fills my senses with life,

Like rain on dry earth.

How I desire your moisture,

That I may drink of your love.

Snippet

Snippet, snippet good (with apologies to Devo). For Lyn and Hayden a long day pruning an overgrown section of garden, while attended to brick paving the courtyard. None of us got off lightly that day. A snippet of our good life 🙂

Gremlins

Gremlins

It has, as always been a mixed year for us, but it seems that unseen gremlins have been at work. It has been a year of hard graft, some disappointments, heartache, and a lot of pressure we hadn’t planned on. In the midst of that there has been a lot of of personal adjustment and thus inner turmoil in emotionally encompassing change, or best put, dealing with chaos. And to cap it off we suffered a break-in last week and just the violation, let alone the loss of personal effects, has been difficult to navigate.

For me it has been a year of wrangling gremlins. Though, that said, the gremlin induced misery only stands out because negatives always deeply affect me, but yet the positives are plentiful in review, which is a wonderful thing as should that not be, I’d be buried in the negatives. Nonetheless, it has been a hard year. Just hoping I’ve corralled the gremlins for a time, I must go and check on them …

Honk

Honk That horn!! You can see the horn next to the left hand (facing) cab light. This is a 1914 Morris Oxford Deluxe. One must respect the process of vintage car circuit, which includes not touching or getting into the car, but I so wanted to squeeze that horn, what a sound it might make.

Neophyte

via Daily Prompt: Neophyte

IMG_0064.jpg

I’m glad my two sons are not neophytes when it comes to understanding motorbikes. this one’s mine and needed some TLC. On this occasion Jon helped me with replacing the break pads and a few other jobs that were overdue. I am a motorbike newbie in a sense, I did have a small Suzukie TC100 a long time ago on the farm and I did running repairs on that, but I forget stuff and well, it’s not my real thing, so it’s good have others around who do understand. My other son Hayden has done some work on my bike since, as it developed some running problems. Thanks guys.

November Reflections and Connections

Voices from the Margins

Reflections – November 1, 2017

Do you ever have mornings when a question plays in your thoughts and you don’t know the answer? This morning, as I gazed at the trees on this first day of November, I wondered if they process carbon dioxide in the winter. The answers I found are fascinating. Maybe everyone else learned this and remembers. But just in case, I thought others might find the answers interesting, too.

The first question that came to mind – Do trees process carbon dioxide (CO2) in winter?

Birch Tree in November, 2016

The answer –

“Most of the land mass of the earth is in the northern hemisphere, and most of the vegetation is Northern hemisphere. During autumn and winter, the leaves fall and exhale carbon dioxide (through decomposition). Throughout the spring and summer days, leaves grow and inhale carbon dioxide. So, when it’s winter…
