Travel Theme Photo Challenge: Centre

This is a wild flower with a contrasting dark centre.

The grinding stone which was used regularly earlier. There is a depression in the centre where rice or whatever has to be ground is put. The smaller stone is rotated clockwise till there is a fine batter.  It is still used but not so frequently with the advent of electrical appliances.

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 am doing something in my own way. Twice a week I go to a home for the mentally challenged . This has enriched my life.
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.

Growing up in Nigeria, I remember women grinding spices in the grinding stone. The was another kind that was flat. The women used another smooth stone to roll over the spices. Your photo took me down memory lane.
