I left yesterday blank. NO reason except to leave it blank. Today , I’m taking a hunt for a HOPE picture  and a look around the Blogs for other Hopeful Photographers. I was intending to limit myself to 3 choices only but I might just break that small rule as well. Seems to be 2012 for me in the first 30 days.

Making plans and changing them.

Having intentions and not carrying them out.

Adopting one attitude and then fostering an entirely different one.

Yesterday’s  CAINER : When is good news not good news? When you have resigned yourself to the idea that it will never come and have thus made a series of alternate plans. When there is no longer room in your life for something wonderful because the space has now been filled up with something second rate. What’s happening in your life now is really rather excellent. If it does not match your idea of what ought to be happening, you just need to change your idea about what ought to be happening! Expect the best. In your heart of hearts, you know this is what you deserve.

FIRST IMAGE FOR HOPE THIS WEEK.

Yes. that’s my passionfruit vine bearing fruit. Its brought me a lot of sub-tropical joy this Summer and now there is actually fruit on it. Mind you, some critter is biting the fruit  clear off before I get to it but I don’t mind too much. It symbolises hope at a time that is appearing to dash rather a lot of what I thought were intelligent and perfectly reasonable hopes for my life.

In the end, there is the Vine and Me.

Now for my look around the Blogs. Will choose 3 extra specials and maybe be a little tougher than usual in  choosing the rest of my favourites.

I have sneaked in this second major image because once I saw how many of us went for plants for the HOPE theme, I figured I had best look further for what HOPE means to me.

A FEW HIDDEN FINDS

What I actually like doing best is digging around in the Internet finding things and then leaving you to do your own thinking about it.

Angry with someone?
ask yourself, what does this say about me?
ask yourself what reason do I have?
what’s the reason behind the reason?
It say more about you then the other person, we all are reflections, mirrors of each-other, hidden parts of ourselfs are being expressed by those who you feel angry with.

AUSTRALIAN BLOGS I AM STUMBLING ACROSS THIS COLD WET TUESDAY

Its cold and wet here today so I am taking what used to be called a Surf through the Net. Mine is more like an amble. I am trying to stay Australian with this selection. I have already come across an Australian Ethos which pleases me well. Through the SYDNEY EYE I discovered FREE FALLING who indulges in GENERAL BLUDGING . Me, myself, I describe as perfecting the ART OF IDLING. And SYDNEY EYE   is subtitled “ besotted with shabbiness”. Kindred spirits the three of us.

Sydney Eye leads me on to CLARENCE VALLEY TODAY. The Clarence is just up the road from here – maybe an hour’s drive.
