Sunday Psalm

Psalm 19

1 The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
2 Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they reveal knowledge.
3 They have no speech, they use no words;
no sound is heard from them.
4 Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world.
In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.
5 It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,
like a champion rejoicing to run his course.
6 It rises at one end of the heavens
and makes its circuit to the other;
nothing is deprived of its warmth.

Square Saturday

The square format photo is not necessarily the first choice for many photographer but I believe has come back into popularity as the format used in Instagram. There are square postcards, I’ve checked, so why not have a square Saturday.

The West Front, Wells Cathedral.

It’s hard to imagine that construction on the present Cathedral began around 1175 and the magnificent West Front would have been completed sometime after 1230.

Friday flowers

Dandelion – some see a weed, others see a wish. Anon

Ok – not quite a flower by the time it gets to this stage. To most gardeners, the humble dandelion is a weed. They may look fine in a meadow but ‘not in my back yard’. The bad news for the gardener is that the seeds are not dormant and can germinate immediately in the same year (fact). But to a child, these dandelion clocks have two functions; either for telling the time (questionable accuracy) or for making a wish (questionable effectiveness).

Do you see a weed or a wish? Or a clock?

Thursday thoughts


Do you remember those days when it was possible to stand closer than two metres from someone outside your support bubble and have a mask-free conversation? The central mall of the Birmingham symphony Hall and International Convention Centre provides an ideal pre-event meeting point where conversations abound.

Something to think about. “When you talk, you are only repeating what you already know. But if you listen, you may learn something new.” – The Dalai Lama
