Tuesday Tales – a Review from Finland!

Yes… a review from way more north than I have even been. However, the review is by a friend who hails from my part of the world but love drove her as far north as what about any South African can get from their homeland. I have told you about Khaya before – look hereand here and here too. But… why don’t you rather visit her blog and find out for yourself?

So, I’ll share Khaya’s review of The Lucky Thirteen… in the hope that it may inspire you enough to have a second look for yourself – simply click on the front page image just here to your right… it will take you to the Amazon page and all the reviews, plus my short synopsis of each of the thirteen tales.

OK… I’ll rest this short series after today’s post – because everyone who I’ve told you about is also a blog buddy that you should follow. One more tit-bit of information… Kyaha is also a regular contributor to the Saffer Worldwide magazine, for which I am deeply grateful and appreciative!

Buttercup Glow – Too Bright To Handle?

The closer you get to the sun the hotter it may be… something similar with trying to encroach on a buttercup’s yellowness. I get the impression that bright yellow flowers cause problems for my camera’s sensor. Let me know what you think about my theory, please.

OK… it’s Monday… again! Do visit Irene’s challenge to see her latest post – always fun to get close to Sunshine Macros… especially on a Monday!

Flapper Friday – Drops…

The swans are all milling about on the river… well, the juniors and the males. The ladies are hiding away… on their nests in the rush thickets. Soon we’ll see the results of their efforts. Let’s hope we have more big white ducks on the river this year. We only documented two cygnets last year… and I have a very strong feeling these two are said birds.

NB – Final call for May submissions for the magazine… today is good, get your pieces in, thanks!

PS – Note the water drops…

PPS – Live show this evening…

Thursday Thought – Individual Thought Processes?

Have you wondered, secretly – or maybe even aloud – if the mass media are telling you the truth? Or… are they all blurting out a narrative prescribed by government and the global organisations who mascaraed as humanitarian well-being institutions? Are we even allowed to think for ourselves anymore? I wonder… and hope you wonder too.

A path we now take for exercise… pretty – but just beneath the surface brews all sorts of thoughts about the dictates of the day…
