I’ve been nominated by Niki over at The Richness of a Simple Life to participate in a challenge. I must say, I was super excited to receive the invite and love the idea of sharing some of my favourite quotes that will hopefully add a little something for people to reflect on. The idea is to post a new quote every day for three consecutive days. Today being my first day I’ve select the below:
I love the simplicity of this. But the message it conveys is so much more important. To me Continue reading “Quote Challenge – #1”
So. I’ve been thinking about this subject for a while. The selfie craze. I had hoped it was a passing fad like the planking phase (I’m sure we all remember that one) but it appears the selfie is here to stay. Much to my chagrin. I’ll confess right now, I’m not a fan. They are a pet hate. I’d rather have root canal surgery, and the hefty bill that comes with it, than see my Instagram feed filled with selfies. Perhaps I’m missing something because I just don’t get the compulsion to take endless photos of myself. Continue reading “On the subject of Selfies”
It’s been a fortnight since my last travel snapshot, so it’s time for another one. The location was an easy choice. You can’t talk about Deadvlei without mentioning Sossusvlei. The two just go together like popcorn and m&m’s (seriously, try it … your tastebuds will thank you). If you are fortunate enough to travel to Namibia and see these two incredible places, you will travel through Sossusvlei to get to Deadvlei. Sossusvlei is located in the Continue reading “Snapshot … Sossusvlei”
So if you’ve read “About me” you’ll have noticed that my insatiable need to travel is mentioned. “Insatiable” … what a lovely word. I love the way it just rolls off the tongue, filled with so much promise, stirring a hunger unlike any other. It encapsulates perfectly this deep felt need I have to explore the world. I really can’t get enough of it. Travel is my drug of choice. And what a drug it is. The allure of distant places, vast landscapes, incredible wildlife, foreign culture … how could anyone resist it? Why would anyone want Continue reading “Snapshot … Deadvlei”
So I’ve been laying here for hours now pondering on that one little, overused word … “LOL”. Now I might be showing my age here but I remember when LOL was born. It stood for “lots of love” and adorned many a letter or card between friends and family. For better or worse, that meaning is considered old school now. Funnily enough, I have an old school friend (pun intended) who still signs her emails to me with the “lots of love” acronym. But she is a rare-breed, a lone voice of defiance in a world where LOL has come to mean “lots of laughs” and is more prolific than a bunch of 20-something’s on a Saturday night.
But here’s the thing about LOL. Continue reading “On the subject of LOL”
