I am trying to find one positive to add here, each day.
My positives are less than they were, as some of you know.
I am trying to counterbalance the weight.
So, my first attempt seems to be thwarted by the sodding picture down load feature! WTH??? Yesterday it was fine???
Ok, now my limited brain has allowed for the altered pic upload feature, that seems to be Blogger's latest challenge.
These are the colours of Paua Shell. I love the rainbow hues, and find them attractive in all manner of combinations. They are, truly, the colours of the Universe...the rainbows... the bubbles of childhood... life's free treats!.
When we were young, we stayed at Beach Baches, which in New Zealand, lots of people owned, or had access to use, for weekends spent at beaches, beside the sea. A Bach was sometimes a primitive dwelling constructed from old tram carriages, Quonset huts and disused army huts. Disused bus shells were not unusual.
Often these dwellings were constructed from several of these, and were divided into the living/sleeping quarters and the cooking/eating quarters.
Cigarette smoking was the fashion of the day, and, of course, this necessitated ashtrays. These ashtrays were often in the form of polished Paua Shells, which were decorative, very long lived, and easily cleaned.
I do not regret having seen them, and enjoyed theirs wonderful colours
Whenever I see a rainbow, I am reminded of the wonderful colours of the Paua Shell.
Johnny Mathis - who could ask for more... if you are of my vintage, of course!
