I'm Gonna Make It Better

I'm Gonna Make It Better - She & Him
There is no Zooey Deschanel thing going on in this blog. OK.
p.s. i nearly said 'Comprende' but realised it'd make me sound like that guy in Big Brother (i know the name but not admitting to such things so easily)

I've been dreaming...

 All men are islands. And what's more, this is the time to be one. This is an island age. A hundred years ago, for example, you had to depend on other people. No one had TV or CDs or DVDs or home espresso makers. As a matter of fact they didn't have anything cool. Whereas now you can make yourself a little island paradise. With the right supplies, and more importantly the right attitude, you can become sun-drenched, tropical, a magnet for young Swedish tourists.

Ocean Colour Scene

Sandsend, Whitby

I love the Seaside but nothing quite matches the magic of a Bay. The way the sea constantly changes depending on the sky, tide & wind make it and ever changing painting I could sit and watch all day, every day. One day I Will.

1st Step...

Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase.

I often think back in the 80s growing up would I choose to have all these amazing gadgets and gizmos (how old do I sound, I've never used that word in my life I promise before) at my disposal. The answer is always a resounding no. Don't get me wrong, i was lucky enough to have a Nintendo & Sega mega drive which were more than well used (saw thumbs a giveaway) but looking back even nostalgically they were nothing on todays frankly amazing machines. I'm sure we've all downloaded an old favourite and thought 'we actually used to spend hours playing this' :/ (I could still play Sensible Soccer for hours mind you. Mr Amiga had to be sent back to the cupboard along time ago) 

Some of my happiest memories were the trips across the Humber Bridge to the cinema & grabbing a quick game on the football arcade before & after. Now, you can get millions times the quality in your own front room, but would i have the same fond memories looking back? 

I'd like to think i'd still have been the same outdoor soul I was & I don't envy the youth of today (Ok I may have slight Victor Meldrew tendencies) in this world where they're exposed to so much so young.

......Be Lucky

I've been told i've got a bit of a monkey brain, constantly flicking from one thought to a totally different other one (i'm getting better). So at least here i'm linking logic of sorts. If you fancy a quick laugh watch the clip below and remember....... Be Lucky

The light will always shine through

Start of the journey

Who knows where it will lead and how long it will last but (this could be the first of many times you read BUT ) where would we get without trying things. All things need a starting point and so often one step leads to another so mine is 'My photos and thoughts they lead to'. Lets see where we end up.
