A brother and sister. She tickled him. He was tired. It was late on a hot December afternoon. He could not walk properly, but she did not mind. When necessary, she carried him. The words of the song came to mind: He ain't heavy, he's my brother.

And then it happened, I had captured the moment above, but my finger was still on the shutter, and I am glad, because the next moment they fell over...

Is is not great to know that life always has more great moments in store?
Keep watching out for them.
Celebrate them.
Treasure them.
Enjoy remembering them.
They're yours.
No one can take them away.

Where did the time go? Well, that's probably one of the questions one also asks at your eightieth birthday.
For me, suddenly there is a new year and the previous post was a month ago.
Does not feel like it!
Hopefully this year there will be more opportunities to share some moments. Like we had at christmas. Grandma bought my kids kites and there was a photo opportunity!
I really battled to find good pictures.
All the time I knew the pictures were there. It was for me to position myself right in order to find them. Sprawling on the ground and changing lenses, I just did not seem to find what I knew was there.
Don't you sometimes feel that life is like that as well. There seems to be more out there, but it seems to just remain out of reach.
Maybe that's what makes life such a wonderful experience, the fact that we are always striving, always on a quest, looking for more...
And knowing that we'll find it, because, like the seeds of an apple, what we're looking for is already within us!
I don't know who thought about it in the first place, but is it not great that we can count the amount of seeds in an apple, but not the amount of apples in the seed...
May 2009 be a year of growth!
Make your dreams soar like kites, keep the string tight and pray for wind!
