Like legs of a centipede
Palms wave and bow
worshipping the wind

About Don

I love life. Sometimes it makes sense, other times not. Discerning its underlying patterns and beauty always provides great reward and meaning and is a passion I ineptly follow. I feel deeply attached to nature and love the sea with its distinct moods and colour and find walking along its beaches wonderfully inspiring. Writing, sketching and photography is a sheer joy for me and the blog is one of the places I am able to express these pursuits.

    This take totally caught me of guard. That’s a good thing, for it seldom happens now that I am of fossil-dom age.

      Thanks Jacquie. Glad you said that. My experience is that the sound of the wind blowing through Palms is different to its sound through other trees. its more of a whistling kind of sound than a rustling one. You probably think I’m a little crazy. Thanks again for your comment.

    Why was the centipede dropped from the insects soccer team?
    Cause it took too long to put it’s boots on.

  9. Thanks for letting me camp out in your blog for a little while today. I had a great time and tried to leave my campsite as good as when I arrived. I’ll be back!
