Life is a short warm moment and death is a long cold rest.


The memories of a man in his old age
Are the deeds of a man in his prime.
You shuffle in gloom of the sickroom
And talk to yourself as you die.

Life is a short, warm moment
And death is a long cold rest.
You get your chance to try in the twinkling of an eye:
Eighty years, with luck, or even less.      (Lyrics Pink Floyd)

    Oh dear those words are rather gloomy, but they do go with the photo


    • Not down my usual track, but after editing the picture and ending up with the dark mood, that seems to be the direction the post took 🙂 Many of my posts are created around a picture I have taken, rather than taking a picture for a post. I guess the more creative writers would plan their posts then search out the subject and photograph it. I take photographs then the post seems to create itself when I’m editing the picture. How do you create your posts Pauline?

        I agree, blogging can take so many directions, it is never boring. On my “Gypsy life” post I tend to create my posts on places I have been or things I have done with the corresponding photos. On my “Memories” blog I use it for the various challenges and looking back through my memories. They sometimes swap over if a challenge that comes up fits into a current outing then it goes into the “Gypsy” blog. Must admit it is all a bit addictive and very time consuming…

    The sun is the same in a relative way, but you’re older. Shorter of breath and one day closer to death..
