25 FEBRUARY 2012 : WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE : INDULGE.

INDULGING IN COLOUR AND JOY.

087

I went to the Natural Growers’ Markets today and when I came home, the week’s topic had been posted. I haven’t gone for indulgence in food, alcohol or decadence. Across a crowded market, I saw this woman indulging in colour and hooping and joy. The children loved her and so do I.

THE YAAN : Well – I am taken by surprise again. I don’t much like many of the challenge pictures so far this week. Sounded a very motivational topic to me too. Last week with a simple word like DOWN brought out some really top shots. This week – well so far it’s a bit saccharine and predictable. So it seems to me tonight anyways I had best go seeking some shots of my own that truly sum up INDULGE and sometimes the images that come later in the week have more oomph to them. Maybe I will look for the negative side of indulging. Or something sinister.

I’ll  take a quick look at sayings about INDULGING and see what they bring to mind.

FROM FRANKENSTEIN

The Creature: I do know that for the sympathy of one living being, I would make peace with all. I have love in me the likes of which you can scarcely imagine and rage the likes of which you would not believe. If I cannot satisfy the one, I will indulge the other.

I have now paid more attention to some of the posts and FRIZZTEXT’S tango images reminded me of a picture from the 1970’s.

THE ENGLISHMAN AND THE AUSTRALIAN GIRL.

  1. I’m glad, that my tango images
    reminded you
    of an own picture from the 1970’s,
    featuring yourself:
    THE ENGLISHMAN AND
    THE AUSTRALIAN GIRL …
    indulge, sink into your ocean
    of good memories for today …

  2. “should women indulge in violent sports?”
    should women indulge in violent husbands?
    should women indulge in violent sons?
    should women indulge in violent job conditions?
    +
    I begin to understand (German is my natural language)
    that sometimes it is better NOT to indulge,
    as Shakespeare once wrote:
    indulge or not indulge, that’s the question…

    1. Oh well said. Excellent way to see it.
      Indulge usually has a slightly negative implication in English. Your post made me think of the wonderful indulgences we can have, especially the deep emotions and senses.
