It's an Age Thing

After leaping round London on Thursday I jumped onto a bus to take me back to Charing Cross. Actually, you can't jump on and off a bus anymore, not like we used to.... ...but I digress.
When I jumped on this bus TWO people jumped up to give me their seat. Now the positive side of me would have said "Manners are not dead after all!" but the negative side of me (some people don't know there is another side!!) said "Grief I must look awful!"

A common experience, amongst us more mature people, is the moment when you see the reflection of an elderly woman in a shop window and realise it's you. It's quite a nasty shock. Thursday's experience was the same kind of shock and as my daughter said when I told her about it....... "Instant depresssion!"

I had a little experiment this morning on how to change the then to the now. The last one is called "Old head on Young Shoulders" and is probably pretty close to how I looked when I got on that bus..... scary huh!!!

Things people do

Can someone tell me why people would rather walk over something, that has fallen off a rack in a store, than replace it so that it is not damaged further?

I went to the Michelangelo Drawing exhibition at the British Museum, it was wonderful to be able to get so close to the sketches just like looking over his shoulder as the audio guide said. But it raised the question, why when Michelangelo does a squiggle it looks like and eyebrow or a curl and when I do a looks like a squiggle. Lack of genius, perhaps???? I loved the way the sketches were often drawn almost on top of other as though he had grabbed whatever piece of paper was to hand. The most moving image for me was a tiny detail on one page which was the first sketch for what would eventually become the hand of God on the Sistine Chapel ceiling.

If anyone considers that I am infringing copywrite by scanning my leaflet please advise me and I will remove it.

Never ending winter

The thing I find so strange about the present cold weather is that, here in our little corner of England, we have had no snow. Just boring, grey, freezing cold for weeks. Too cold for snow, they say.
Here's some I made earlier!!

Is it just my mind?

Scanned in a photo of the sea and rocks as I thought it would make a good background at sometime. I always try the negative image because you never know what will happen........lo and behold the sea shore changed into a landscape ........and was that a little house on the top of a hill...........someone quite special must live there.......I wonder what they use for fuel........Is it just my mind???
