The Gallery: White

My entry for this week’s Gallery at the lovely Tara Cain’s Sticky Fingers blog.

Up until now I’ve used old photos, this week I’ve taken one especially for The Gallery to its specific theme. And written about it. So here it is:

Frozen Footprints in the Snow

Are they mine? Are they hers? Are they “ours”? Where do they go? What story do they tell?  Are they going the same way, or moving apart? Is there more, more to the story here that  I don’t see? So much for me to see: left behind, frozen in time – but only for a moment. And I’m still in the dark.

One thing is clear from the frozen footprints in the snow:  that bloody cat has been after my feeding birds again…

The light was good this morning , but the snow had thawed so much that  I thought I’d left it too late to get a decent picture. I was pleasantly surprised however by the photos I took – so I couldn’t resist posting some more here.  Aww I’m just too much of a rock’n”roll rebel! *ahem* Anyway, see what you think:

Have a look at the rest of The Gallery. There are some terrific photographers there:

Daily Twitterscopes (Scorpio): October 2009

Wednesday, October 7th

Take whatever time you need to sort out any problem relationships today: you don’t want to hurt anyone, & it never feels virtuous, but sometimes they just come to an end. There is currently no need to explain yourself or to understand; today is the day for when you couldn’t be more obvious. If you procrastinate you may find that you no longer understand what someone in your position is to do. Today you do; today is your day.

Tuesday, October 6th

Only you know if everything is in place today, whether everything seems alright. There’s a chill in the air & the sky’s turning black, & you may feel that there’s something missing; in the whispering rain & the trembling leaves it’s easy to feel this way. If you keep your head, stay centred & focus on your strengths you will be able to compensate for this feeling of loss, & rise above it.

Monday, October 5th

Although you may be unable to stay out all night & feel alright, it sometimes helps to remember that you’re not just here for business: you’re also here for fun. It doesn’t help if you know you don’t have any money; yet there’s often some little café where they play guitars all night & all night day. Your rosy day will come; someday you’ll look back on this & it will all seem funny.

Sunday, October 4th

You may be so energetic today that you are ready to shake your knees, bang the drum & cut the rug right where you are. Calming down is tricky- and that’s the basic dilemna of this Starr in your 3rd House of Laughter opposite the Sun in your 10th House of Plans. When the Autumn leaves come down, soon the snow flakes fall. So waste no moré time fooling around: act today on what you have discovered. You may go wrong but it will be alright as long as you are prepared to wait. If you deal the pack & check your hand you should get everything you expect.

Saturday, October 3rd

Today you may need to just slow down. In the evening, in the dark, stop: ‘til there’s not a sound, not one sigh, just the beat of your poor heart. It may be as if your mind begs you to please keep still, knowing it will be ending. Now you may find what the rest have left behind; just let them dance, you could find what you need in the dark.

Friday, October 2nd

You want to feel things are fine: ‘til the time you find your plans have died. You may be a diamond in the rough; wanting that special someone who stays & won’t play games behind you is perfectly normal. You don’t know that you will but until you can find yourself you have to be what you are: right or wrong, weak or strong.

Thursday, October 1st

You may have moved up while just trying to make a living; we’re not all movie stars or millionaires. Now, however, do you know where you came from or where you plan to go? Choosing to move on again is one way. Ultimately, however, time alone & thinking about your life are healthy ways to fix things. Like allvintage wine, sometimes it’s the best move just to stay put for a bit.
