Boulder Falls into Iced Tea

September 18th, 2012

I don’t do a lot of ‘promotion’ on my blog because that is not what my blog is about. Its more about my observations, that are sporadic at best, on the oddities that life throws up and my take on them. So please forgive this particular blog as it is not intended to sell tea, rather to show how a simple walk on a Sunday morning with my youngest son resulted in a couple of pictures that a major ad agency would charge a fortune for. I had the tea with me to refresh us on our walk, and as we approached the Boulder Falls the idea occurred to me to take a shot of the tea with the falls in the background. Viola….brilliant! I had the idea that I should take a bottle of tea with me everywhere and then take pics, a kind of travelling road show with the bottle as the star. Boulder Falls & some Iced Tea

But then I thought that this really might be too much of a “promo”..what are your thoughts dear reader? Let me know…Should I? Shouldn’t I?

A Holy Difference

I have always believed you should never take life too seriously and when faced with a “downside moment” take the opportunity to laugh at life in general and the occasional ridiculousness of it all. Put another way…the glass is always half full….

I was raised in the highlands of Kenya, at 5,500 feet above sea level on the equator. Add those pieces of information together and you get the earths nearest point to the sun, a lot of sun, and a lot of time out in the sun.

Skin cancer comes in many forms…I was lucky to have a mild form…and the fact that it was near the end of my nose and the resulting pressure bandage make me look like Rudolph (I should have colored it red) is a chance to laugh at the other immaculate imagery of my bronze sculptor…..

Laugh at life and others will laugh with you…cry and you cry alone….

I am all for laughing ……but skin cancer is no laughing matter so if you have an unexplained bump or lump get it checked out……its worth the time even if you do end up looking like a lost reindeer….
