One Month of Haiga – February 20, 2016

Hello …

Many years ago, for Easter,  my eldest  son brought three roses to the ladies present for Easter dinner.  They were blue!  I really liked the blue rose very much and so it has become a part of my memory … in a bitter-sweet fashion since not long afterwards he and his wife separated.  So now a happy memory has a sad tinge to it, which brings me to today’s theme:

An evolving memory

I want to reflect on how a memory or an action evolves and becomes part of our “history” in a pleasant but or an unpleasant way, like my blue rose;   born in a sweet romantic gesture,  now blue roses will forever mean separation for me:

One Month of Haiga – February 15, 2016

Hello!

Today I’ve decided to write my haiku in Italian …

There are moments that bring back memories … a smell, a sound the feeling of the wind on your face, going to a place where you once went with a loved one who is now gone.  Memories are a strange thing, they often don’t reflect the truth of what actually happened, sometimes we “tweak” them and make them more beautiful, sometimes we remember only the worst of an event.  Whatever the case may be … most of our experiences are founded in our memories.  This morning’s theme will be:

We were a little late for a ballgame out at Busch Stadium, so walking around just killing time before they opened the gates, we came on this great place, wonderful food and mega-screens everywhere.  Presumably, once the game began people watched the game from here.  We decided to have our lunch here and as usual, my sis decided to grab the bill…

Cee’s Photo Challenge: Flight

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This week Cee’s asking for flight.  Over the last three weeks as I went daily to Trento’s Santa Chiara Hospital, I had the opportunity to see a lot of mercy flights come in.

Trentino-Alto Adige being a mountainous region sometimes means it’s not easy to get an emergency case to the hospital in the conventional way.  Over the years, our region has decided to buy several helicopters to get to those people who need urgent care, whether because of an accident (and in the mountains there are not a few during the vacation season) or other “mundane” problems like a heart attack.  Oh, and it won’t cost you a fortune if you ever need this particular sort of assistance … it’s paid in full by the Region.

Go and have a look at Cee’s Photo Prompts…she’s got a lot on her plate ant lots of photographic tips as wall as prompts galore!
