.Life began millennia ago
Thousands of years, and ages past
At the time is seems slow
But in reality goes by so fast

Dinosaurs and spiders
Raptors and crocodiles
Winged creatures – gliders
Fish with big toothy smiles

A meteor destroys them
Makes way for Neanderthal
Not wearing stones or gems
In fact, wearing nothing at all

Many centuries go past
As man starts to grow
Each age adds to the last
Forcing leaders to show

Inventors come forth
Giving us enhancement
Man gets stuck in a rut
In need of advancement

The intelligence of man
Comes up with a solution
Nothing ever goes as planned
They destroy us with pollution

fish with seven eyes
lobsters the size of a house
progress destroys us

Weekly Photo Challenge: Refraction

  • Change in direction of propagation of any wave as a result of its travelling at different speeds at different points along the wave front.


Where You Are Now Is Not Necessarily Where You Will End up

Being in a dark place now, will not leave you in a dark place for an eternity even if it seems like it at the time. There is always light, although sometimes you have to strain your eyes to see it. Sometimes a friend may be required to point out where the light is, sometimes the friend is the light. Don’t give up. You will get through this. Have faith in yourself. You have made it through 100% of your bad days so far. That’s a good track record.

All of these are from previous months.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Green

It has been ages since I have done Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge, but when I saw it was “Green“, I knew I had to do it. Especially to show off my very first macro shot I did The bug on the leaf. It was so tiny. I took about 250 photos of that little critter.
