Third day of the challenge and well I have come to the conclusion that because I am looking for weird and interesting things, I am actually not finding them – when usually I always would. Dont you find that happens? when you want or look for something your tend not to find it?! So from this I will not bother looking for things and just let weird and random things come to me.
However despite this, Friday the main highlight to me was seeing one of my long time good friends. I hadn’t seen her in a while (far too long actually) but it was as if we had seen each other a few days before. We just talked and laughed like it was yesterday we spoke and I thought to myself,; this is what a true friend is. Someone you may not always talk to and see much, but you know when you need them and you do see them after quite sometime, you know they are there and you still can talk forever about anything.
So I thought I’ll share this poem, specially to my dearest friend…
So often we don’t take the time to be aware of what is treasured.
Not wealth or material things,
But how your days are measured.
Friendship is so special,
It cannot be brought or sold.
It is precious if it is brand new,
or priceless if it is old.
Friends are who you need the most,
When times are not so right.
They come and go so frequently,
You hope you pick one right.
The right one listens with both ears,
So they can be the one who says,
‘be calm and let me help’
We never forget our dearest friends,
And treat them with loving care.
If they don’t they will leave you,
When you need them they won’t be there.
Well today was meant to be the first day of my One Photograph and One Paragraph challenge – as today is the first day of February! However I completely forget; bad I know suppose in my defence – doesn’t time just fly faster and faster these days? I literally cant believe its February already!
Moving on from my bad memory, I thought I’ll share this quote! I think specially today and in the past few weeks this is the one things I have learnt considerably and I am sure others have too.
“I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone. It’s not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people who make you feel all alone.”
But sometimes you have to stop worrying, wondering and doubting. Have faith that things will work out, maybe not how you planned but just how it’s meant to be.
isn’t this slightly disturbing art?! is it art? one could ask!
Well I think excellent concept I suppose its making a point to find beauty in decay however unfortunately I don’t think this is art. Its a photo, showing simple documentation, I personally think it takes more to make this tragedy art.
Noc Kupaly is the word to describe the feast day of St John the Baptist in Polish. The day is called Kupala Day! It is celebrated in Ukraine, Belarus, Poland and Russia. The word Kupala is related to a word derived from the Slavic word for bathing and they believe that it was a sacred holy day honoring the two most important elements: Fire and Water.
The tradition is to burn fires at the end of the day and bathe in open waters at sunset, singing and dancing around ‘pal’ till midnight and is held near the summer solstice. It is equivalent of Valentine’s Day.
