from a "click and hope" photographer


What is sad for women of my generation is that they weren't supposed to work if they had families.

What were they going to do when the children are grown - watch the raindrops coming down the window pane?”

-Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis-

Thanks for all the nice comments....much appreciated. I look through some of the Photo A Day blogs and some people are magicians with a camera. Glad you like them Auds, as you realise we don't get out much and so most photos will be "in house"...I wonder when the "Lady Haversham" cobwebs will make an appearance...LOL

hi ruth, thanks for the visit, and so glad to meet you. From your profile, you sound like a special lady! In my archives there is a post on Wed 22nd November 2006 about happy marriage and being soulmates, such an awesome gift! Your story is a reminder to treasure every day. Love the photos, and especially love the wonderful apt quotes you put with them!

My windows are covered in raindrops too

Raindrops keep falling on my head......Another song for Mrs Nesbitt's blog

That reminds me of a screensaver I used to have on my work computer, it was raindrops running down the screen.

Nice picture and quote. You have imagination!

Tenderness contains an element of sadness. It is not the sadness of feeling sorry for yourself or feeling deprived, but it is a natural situation of fullness. You feel so full and rich, as if you were about to shed tears. Your eyes are full of tears, and the moment you blink, the tears will spill out of your eyes and roll down your cheeks. In order to be a good warrior, one has to feel this sad and tender heart. Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
