The daily post photo challenge- Endurance

Our planet has been in existence for billions of years and humans have been around for a long, long time. When we look around us we have been doing our best to destroy Mother Earth in different ways. Most people are not thinking of the consequences of  these actions. But she has endured. Every dawn reminds me of this endurance of Mother earth.

These are photos of just before sunrise and the beauty of the sky and so much more.



And it is sunset and another day ends and life goes on. I had read these lines somewhere and have loved them-

“Look to this day !

For it is life

the very life of life

In its brief course

Lie all the varieties and realities

of your existence.”

I am a person who believes there is not enough darkness in the world to extinguish the light of a small candle. We live in a small place in South India. I love reading, blogging, stitching, traveling, photography, listening to people and many other things which make life so very nice and interesting. Blogging is a fun experience, it has brought me into contact with people in different parts of the world and it is good to read about their everyday life. In spite of the differences there is a sameness which is fascinating. I have learnt and am learning something everyday. I have learnt to write haikus. I enjoy combining the thought and the number of syllables. I have always read books and I was happy to write short fiction. I had thought I would not be able to do so. Stream of Consciousness and photo challenges are fun too. Yes, there is so much in life that is sad and that hurts us. Many a time I wonder why life is so unfair to so many. We all have problems in life but the problems of many seems unbearable. This makes me feel so helpless. It is not possible to help everyone but we can do our bit, we can do something to help some in whatever way we can. I used to go to the Home for the Mentally challenged in our campus twice a week. I have been going there since 2011. The members are an important part of my life. Covid-19 has made it difficult for me to go there regularly. Hopefully I will be able to go there again. There have been many challenges in life and we have faced them with a positive approach. Our grandson and granddaughter have made life so much more richer.


  1. Beautiful images and such a true message! How much destruction do we humans wreak on this planet … often in the name of ‘development’! Long may Mother Earth endure!
