Three wisdom windows

Or window wisdoms, your choice. Apply as necessary, they are all true. Forgiveness is giving up all hope of having had a better past. ~Anne Lamott There is no such thing as paranoia. Your worst fears can come true at any moment. ~Hunter S. Thompson (quote reblogged from Zenkatwrites’s Blog) If you would avoid all fools…

Vision 20/20

And it’s not over yet. This is my sister’s visit in twenty images. Even with a single photo from each location (okay, and a bit more from home) I had to stop myself at 20. It begins and ends with colourful bits to bite with plenty in between, including the first use of bikini this year. Click…

Thursday Doors, December 15

Here is the second part of Caldana doors, comune of Gavorrano, province of Grosseto. This town must hold the record for the highest percentage of doors posted per capita. They might not be glamorous but they are well lived. And ultimately that’s what you want to be, as a door, opened and closed, kicked and slammed,…

Alas, it was not Monday. Also, I cannot save all windows for Mondays, I’m doing that…

WPC: Shiny crazy diamonds

For this challenge I’ve been enjoying collecting images with a certain shine to them. It can come from different sources. And yet, does it really? But first a short recap of the past week: I gave you our local beach.  I showed you our slightly pink flamingos from not so very close up.  I alerted you to…

Thursday Doors, October 13

With parents safely on train, I conclude that we have seized the week’s only two really nice and warm days to discover five new towns, their autumn feasts, a museum, a couple of tombs, a Pinocchio, and of course the doors. Three door images from each of the five towns coming up. 1. Caldana (community…
