I shall let you wonder about this one.

THE YAAN.

It’s a wee bit damp outside this evening. Breezes coming in from the Sea and the River and frogs croaking.  I spend most of my life wondering about things. A head filled with Wondering and Wonders. It  takes me some discipline to tame the mind before it “gets on its horse and gallops off in all directions“  and to pay attention to the small Wonders like FRIZZTEXT’s NAUTILUS shell requires even more discipline. Tonight there is lightning out over the Sea and whispers of storms hitting towns around us.  I am digging deep into my collection of images to choose some which might have you wondering. I won’t be doing much explaining either. Just leave you with some things to wonder about. 

THE ETERNAL QUESTIONS.

WHO ?

WHAT?

WHERE?

WHEN?

WHY?

HOW?

AS FOR ME :

An early morning wakeup after an itching and restless night. The topic for this week is WONDER.  The example given in the WORDPRESS POST is the PANTHEON and FRIZZTEXT uses this spiral image for his.  As for me, I am beginning the week with a picture of my father, Bruce Sanders. My ex husband said, at my father’s passing in 2005. “ Its  like losing the 8th wonder of the world”.  Later on, when I am actually awake, I will take a look about for the intentional photo of WONDER. For now :

BRUCE SANDERS.

the 8th Wonder of the World. Known as PA.
