The Daily Post Photo Challenge : Today Was a Good Day

For this week’s photo challenge, select and share a series of photographs. You can piece together what you consider an ideal day, recount a memorable day, tell a (visual) story, or show us some of your favorite things.

The areca garden in our village, is in different level. During the monsoon season the excess water from the pool flows down to the lower level. A natural waterfall. Last month our grandson had a very, very good day playing under the waterfall . We too had a good day watching him:)

Death comes as the End

I remembered this title of an Agatha Christie book when I read about the death of a senior citizen in the paper some time ago. He went back to the building as he had forgotten some papers. He waited for the lift, the door opened and he stepped in. Unfortunately, the door had opened but the lift had not been there. He must have walked in without really noticing and had fallen down the shaft to his death. Walking to the lift, he would not have known that they were his last moments. Did he suffer or was death instantaneous? It must have been such a shock to his relatives waiting outside.

Many a time people just go and when people pass away without suffering, they are the lucky ones. But not all are that lucky. Death of course comes as an end but that is not in our hands. How we face life depends a lot on us.

The lives of some of some of my near ones have taught me important lessons and I hope they will be with me as long as I live.

‘Accept whatever comes your way in life and do not keep worrying about what will happen or will not happen.

Accept changes and change with the times. Learn to accept the new and the different.

Do not live with fear all the time. If something is to happen it will happen, what is the point in being scared all the time.’

In the end I was also told it was easy to preach but not that easy to practice unless we make up our minds to do so. It all depends on us.
“Death is more universal than life; everyone dies but not everyone lives.” Andrew Sachs

The Daily Post Photo Challenge : Creepy

This week, share an image of something creepy. Unsettling. Eerie. Disgusting.

During our visit to London, I had been to the British Museum. To see these huge statues without their heads was quite unsettling. I wonder who those people had been.
