Tina Schell (travelsandtriffles), the hostess of Lens-Artists photo challenge says
“Each week the Lens-Artists Challenge presents us with an opportunity to include images on a specific subject. But what about the images that are among our favourites but have not fit any of the categories? This year we’re giving you an opportunity to include images on any and all subjects that are personal favourites – BUT, they must have been created in 2022 AND must not have been previously published in response to a Lens-Artists Challenge! It’s an opportunity not only to revisit 2022’s images but also to take a stroll down memory lane for some of the year’s highlights.”
Thank you Tina Schell for this thoughtful theme, as the year is about to end and an opportunity to look back and dust the archive at the same time cherishing those frozen moments.
Additionally, I must say that those that took part provided us with a visual feast.
Please take a moment to read their posts. You will not regret it.
HAPPINESS IS SEEING A RAINBOW
Formation of a rainbow is very very rare in my part of the world.
We had an overcast sky at around 11.30 in the morning during the last week of September, and we all assumed that it was going to rain.
I was thrilled to see a rainbow during the drizzle and expressed gratitude to Heaven for the gift.
Can our life, no matter what, also be colourful?
“There is no envy, jealousy, or hatred between the different colours of the rainbow.
And no fear either. Because each one exists to make the others’ love more beautiful.”
LOVE IS NOT WHAT YOU SAY, LOVE IS WHAT YOU DO
Instead of talking, what do you do to impress others such that they understand the meaning of love?
In less than two months we are all going to celebrate Valentine’s day.
How are you going to express your love to your loved ones?
By speech, gifts or by deeds?
Of course, you are ready with your versions of love.
I am convinced that love today has a completely different connotation.
The act of expressing love must be extravagant and expensive.
Everyone is led to believe that there must be an issue with “love” if their expressions of love are not achieving the desired results.
Expression of love has become artificial and everybody is aware of this and accepts this as the norm.
How many couples are lucky enough to celebrate a silver jubilee or Golden anniversary?
Does love die?
“Love never dies a natural death.
It dies because we don’t know how to replenish its source.
It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals.
It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings.”
UNUSED OR POORLY MAINTAINED?
It appears to be both.
We don’t know the reason.
We frequently fall short of comprehending why things aren’t utilised in the way they should be.
We waste our life in a similar way.
Tragedy of life
“Unused money devalues.
Unused talent diminishes.
Unused time dies.
Unused knowledge becomes a burden.
The tragedy of life is not ultimate death,
But the resources that die within you when you are still alive” Lavisha
Thank you for your visit.
Take care, my friend.
