Lifted Spirits, Struggling Swans and Fading Beauty

22 Nov

1  For a number of reasons, I was late to singing this morning and as soon as I approached the room and could hear the gorgeous harmonies of “Lo, the Eastern Sages Rise”, one of our glorious carols, my spirits were lifted. Then I joined in and of course, my spirits soared even more along with the music!  Everyone should sing!  I know some of my readers will say, “But I can’t!”   Bear in mind this Zimbabwean proverb –  ‘If you can walk, you can dance and if you can talk, you can sing.’

2   It has been a wild, wild day and these elegant swans were doing their best in the rough water but barely moving.

Beginning to fade

The veins in this one have become more prominent and the centres have gone blue

HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all my American readers!

    Those anemones are absolutely exquisite. Love the proverb.

      And with a teacher like Claire, I really believe that anyone can sing! 🙂
