Writing your own story #ramble

Yes, it’s Sunday morning and I’m allowing you into the dark recesses of my mind and sharing my thoughts once again. It is a wet weekend so where will I go today? I’m not staying in! I think I might go to Poundland and see if I can scan my own shopping through the till without some kid coming to my aid. It happens to be near my favourite sweet shop so I might as well pop in there as well. I talked to a couple of students this week via Skype. One of them is a writer and so very creative but at a cross-road in her life. I told her to create her own story. Life is a journey, but a journey is a story. In fact, when I am writing a story besides putting many characters in the story I put many places in the story too. Life is like that, isn’t it? Many places and many people.

Follow the leader #ramble

It’s Sunday and so once again I let you into my inner most sanctum and share my thoughts with you. I went into a crowded room yesterday and it made me slightly nervous. Eventually, I found my way through the crowd to the front near the stage to take photos. I remember an experiment in a similar environment where a fire alarm went off and 95% of the people simply followed other people out of the room. Of course, someone had to go first; someone had to lead. Then it was simply, follow the leader. Once I was at the front of that crowd yesterday, I became aware of the fire exit about four yards from me. I wasn’t about to be a follower if there was any sign of a problem.

Follow the leader?

Getting your priorities right #ramble

It is Sunday morning and so once again I allow you into the darkest recesses of my mind and share my thoughts with you. I missed out on the carnival yesterday, I wasn’t well but felt better later and tried for a parking spot. I decided to just walk around with my camera; carrying my camera bag too would be too tiring. I didn’t get a parking place so came home slightly disappointed but it did make me think. Something needs to be done about the parking if events are going to be staged attracting a lot of people. You have to get your priorities right. Don’t you?

Ulterior motive: asking why? #ramble

Yes, it is Sunday morning again and so I’m going to share my thoughts with you. This week, I’m questioning people’s motives. In fact, I wonder ‘why’ all the time! Remember Band-Aid? Who benefited from that? Did we see our TV screens full of starving people getting fed? My TV screen was full of rich people getting richer on the back of a campaign to get poor people to donate to even poorer people who I suspect never got any money. There was an ulterior motive to their campaign wasn’t there?

The creation of images #ramble

Once again, it is Sunday morning and I share my thought with you. Not that much has been going on that I care to share. I’m not very good at sharing, I prefer to be alone a lot of the time. It’s easier to be alone sometimes, isn’t it? Then people can’t cause you stress or worry or whatever. I often find it easier to do my own thing too and if I make a mess of it I know who to blame! I try hard to work with others and accept collective decisions but it isn’t easy.  That’s why I like photography and the creation of images, it’s just me and my camera, unless I decide to point it at people…

Fathers Day in the Park #ramble #Wednesbury

It is Sunday morning once again and so as usual I will allow you into the innermost corners of my mind and share my thoughts with you once again. What’s on my mind this week? It is Fathers Day and I’m going to the park!

A beautiful icebreaker #ramble #art #inspiration

I’ve got an app on my phone and it actually counts how many steps I take, like a pedometer. I take more steps on Sundays despite this supposedly being a day of rest. I’m supposed to take 10,000 steps a day according to the app but the most I’ve done so far is 3,000 and that’s pushing it. There’s an app for everything these days isn’t there? I have an app for buying clothes, an app to find my way when I’m driving or call for help if I break down. I have an app for Aldi and another for the lottery results. Then there are the social media apps to help me keep in touch and network, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram. I don’t understand Instagram yet but I’ve never been so appy…

Diesel and petrol at two pounds a litre? #GE

It’s Sunday and so once again I share my thoughts with you. What’s on my mind this week? Well, I have been thinking about the General Election and thinking about what the real policies are. Those real plans behind all the rhetoric and bull-shit they put on television. Many of the plans they have told us about sound like they will stoke inflation but I think with record debts they will need to get money from somewhere and the old favourites, fags, booze and petrol seem the most likely options. They can now use the excuse of global warming to bang up both diesel and petrol.

Will they put up diesel and petrol?

Wednesbury and beyond #ramble

It’s Sunday morning again and so I will dig deep into the darkest recesses of my mind and share my thoughts with you once again. What’s on my mind this morning? I need a title for this post to begin with and a picture; I always use a picture… Maybe one from yesterday, when I was up Wednesbury market?

Dont just think about it; just do it! #ramble #ideas

It’s early on Sunday morning and so I’m allowing you once again into the darkest corners of my mind and sharing my thoughts with you.  If you want to do something, don’t just think about it – just do it! That isn’t a bad philosophy to have, is it? I wanted to be a writer and so I started blogging. I wanted to be a photographer and so I bought a camera! Now I fancy being an artist. This is my first art card –

Art - just do it

Out in the spring sunshine #ramble

Yes, it’s Sunday morning again and so once again I’ll let you into the dark labyrinth that is my mind and share my thoughts once again. I didn’t really have a good week but the sun’s shining and I’m thinking of going out to enjoy the spring sunshine.

My thoughts this week #ramble

Each Sunday morning, I allow you into the innermost sanctum of my mind and share my thoughts with you. I’ve decided on something a little different this week. I’ll still share my thoughts but a bit earlier than usual.

Happy St Georges Day #ramble

Yes, it is Sunday morning again here in Merry England and I share my thoughts with you once again. What’s on my mind this morning? It’s St Georges Day of course. St George according to legend slayed the dragon, did he not? We all have our dragons to slay, those challenges that life puts before us that we must overcome to succeed. Today’s picture is of two foxes that I saw when I opened my curtains this morning frolicking in a trench filled with dried grass cuttings at the bottom of the garden.

I’m starting to feel my age #ramble

Yes, It’s Sunday morning and so I let you into the labyrinth that is the internal working of my mind and share my thoughts with you once again. What’s on my mind this week? I’m starting to feel my age, I have a few aches and pains. I need to get out in the sunshine and get some exercise. My photography is a good interest for getting gentle exercise on a sunny day.

Feel my age?

Look at the time! #ramble #photography

It’s Sunday morning and so here I go trying to write another Sunday morning ramble. I was out early yesterday photographing narrowboats on the canal. I was even invited to join their tour but that involved walking up some abandoned locks and I know how steep that hill is! It’s a nice day again today and so I’ll be out taking photos again this afternoon. I usually start writing at about nine a clock, but today I thought, look at the time; it was after ten!

Look at the time. I wanted to photograph that boat under the bridge!

Strange ideas and brain chemicals #ramble

It’s Sunday morning and so I allow you a glimpse into the mind of a serial thinker and ideas person; me. The human brain works on chemicals that can make us feel happy or sad or bring back happy memories or painful memories. Dopamine is the one that zaps the reward centres of our brain and that can be quite addictive. I find it quite difficult to stop eating dark chocolate sometimes and I have to really restrict myself when it comes to beer. Both of these things can lead to strange ideas. Time for a picture…

The season of rebirth #spring #ramble

Yes, it’s Sunday morning and so time to share my thoughts about the week with you once again. So what’s in the dark labyrinth this week? It is actually sunny today and I’m thinking of going out to shoot some landscape pictures. That should be a little more relaxing than the photo-shoots I did this week. I actually went to a school this week taking photos in a hall full of small children. There are all sorts of protocols these days about identifying kids in photographs and so it is a bit like wandering through a minefield. Anyway, it’s spring, the season of rebirth so I have Spring photos on my mind.

Episodic memory failure in a post-truth world

It’s Sunday morning and so once again I allow you into the darkest depths of my mind and share my thoughts about my continuing journey through life. I was out taking photos in the town centre yesterday as part of my role publicising the Business Improvement District. There was supposed to be a visit by an MEP but she didn’t turn up. I’m not surprised. It was cold and windy and our town centre isn’t very inviting on a summer’s day let alone on a chilly winter’s day. Perhaps she has episodic memory problems too?

Is it still raining? #ramble

Is it raining?

Is it raining?

It’s Sunday morning and so once again I let you into the weird labyrinth where I keep my innermost thoughts. What’s on my mind this week? On a Sunday, I like to write this ramble in the morning and then after lunch, I like to do some landscape photography while I can drive about without facing mind destroying congestion. Of course, on Friday’s when the congestion is the worst we get the sunshine and on Sundays it’s always raining.

I was out last night taking photos at Churchill’s club where my brother was celebrating his 60th birthday. I have looked through the photos this morning and they are quite good. I deleted far fewer than usual and so I must be getting better at this event photography.

Art and culture #ramble

I think the town I live in lacks some cultural opportunities. The art gallery rarely seems to have anything interesting on and only opens three days each week. It closes altogether in the winter. I think we could make a bit more of an effort to get funding from the Arts Council for a summer exhibition. The Royal Academy of Arts has a summer exhibition and so why shouldn’t we? Yes, today I’m sharing my thoughts with you as I usually do on a Sunday morning. I have art and culture on my mind this morning.

In search of serendipity #ramble

Serendipity means a “fortunate happenstance” or “pleasant surprise”. It was coined by Horace Walpole in 1754. In a letter he wrote to a friend, Walpole explained an unexpected discovery he had made by reference to a Persian fairy tale, The Three Princes of Serendip.

You get serendipity in science as well, when researchers discover something just by chance, that they weren’t even looking for.

Blue sky thinking #Sunday #ramble

It’s Sunday morning and so once again I allow you into the labyrinth of neural pathways that is my brain and share my thoughts with you. What’s on my mind this week? I’m still doing social media stuff and trying to share pictures of the community I live in that show it in a positive light. I could do dark industrial pictures of the Black Country but we now have nature reserves and we even have the Black Country forest! Times change and there is no point getting stuck in the past. Industry belongs to a bygone age, we are now producing different things and it can be more fun and be more creative. Anyway, I’m now into blue sky thinking.

Lacking leadership? #ramble

It is Sunday morning and so what’s on my mind this week? Well, imagine for a moment that you’re lost in the forest. What would you do? You would probably look at the position of the sun and that sort of thing to get your bearings. If you were with a group of people you would probably ask if anyone knew the way out. You would look for a leader because a group lacking leadership just wanders around aimlessly. I’m not a fan of the Tories but Theresa May does have leadership qualities.

Status – not all that it seems? #ramble

It’s Sunday morning and so once again I am going to ramble and give you a glimpse into my mixed up mind. What’s on my mind this week? Yes, it is things that aren’t all that they seem. Quite often, I think, this is not what it seems. People’s motives aren’t always what they say they are. You might think that new block saved drive is to drive the car on but is it? A slab of concrete or a tarmac drive would be easier to maintain and cheaper. Block paved drives look better, though. The real reason for that new drive is to show off a status symbol. Then you need a shiny new car to put on it. Why is status so important to us?
