April’s End

These are some shots I took today and yesterday. The building tops are from a couple of the shops in town, the owl is on top of a building as well. I only spotted it yesterday.

The black things are all little midges, and the brown stuff is a where a tree was pruned and the branches were being fed into a “chomper”. I hope May is the best of your months so far this year.

Ming The Merciless Mounts Mayhem

If anyone has seen the 1980s film Flash Gordon with Sam J Jones in the title role, Melody Anderson as Dale Arden, Timothy Dalton as Prince Barin, Topol as Dr Hans Zarkov and Max Von Sydow as Ming The Merciless, with the ever powerful and magnificent Brian Blessed as Prince Vultan, you will know that the beginning of the film starts with Earth coming under attack from Ming and raining fiery hail with a red sky. That is what my thoughts were when I saw the clouds yesterday along with the song in my head “Flash … ah-ahhhh … saviour of the universe” (song by Queen after the photos)

Until You Are Broken, You Don’t Know What You Are Made Of

You can guarantee that at some point in your life, you will be so broken that you will have no idea in where you are going, where you came from or even what day of the week it is. These times are so destructive that you are constantly crying on the inside whilst trying to hide it on the outside. Remember though, these pieces on the floor are all part of you and they are all there. You can pick these up and piece them together how you want them to be, you can remake yourself into something better, stronger. More resilient. Falling apart may be seen as a blessing in disguise as you can come back from it having learnt and rebuilt.

I want to thank the following for the title and the majority of the quotes today:
