Words that flow...

Words and images - powerful elements of our everyday life. Most of the time we take them for granted, but sometimes something happens to make you aware of how important they are... and how thankful you are to have the opportunity to use or appreciate them. Here lies some of my words and pictures (which are untouched apart from cropping, unless I've said otherwise) - Please add your words to mine, and leave a comment. Thanks for visiting!

(W) Weather monster

So, we went from beautiful sunny day yesterday, to gruesome drizzle today... and this one's a silly one about the weather... (but if you know British weather, it's so typical!):

The fall is like that here too! Terrible weekend and today was very nice and sunny!

I remember in England everyone had black umbrellas. My friend and I had bright orange and yellow ones! Man, did we stand out! Now I have a transparent one I love because I've always wanted one since I was a kid. You can watch the rain drip down and the lightning too!

hope- yes, rain always comes when you don't need it, doesn't it (like a fete, harvest time, or some event you've been planning all year!) And then, when you do need it - drought. I grew up on a farm, and after the 6pm news every day,we had to be absolutely silent, so my dad could watch the weather.

I think I've always retained a bit of awe for the weatherman - he had the ability to silence us all (the 4 kids) as nothing else could!

mother of invention- I know what you mean about the umbrellas - there is a lot of black about (but more colour than there used to be, I think). I can just imagine you holding your transparent brolly over your head when you are out and about with your collecting-box! (how's that going, btw?)

The change of weather is akin to the changes we face in life; you never know when things will turn. It's a matter of going with the flow. You seem to have mastered that approach.

I was referred to you as a potential link exchange in the "creative" category. I think you would be an excellent addition. We are launching a blog as well as a website to maximize exposure. Should you be interested, write a comment. Those who come aboard first will gain priority spots.

Looking through your blog, it appears, networking works well. I agree that you deserve a broader audience.
