New Wrinkles : The daily post

New Wrinkles

You wake up one day and realize you’re ten years older than you were the previous night. Beyond the initial shock, how does this development change your life plans?

This is a good one!

I am usually taking the photos.

I never really see how I look behind my camera.

At the wedding my son took a photo of me.

It was as if I woke up the next morning and I realized I am not only ten years older but

way more than twenty years.

Not only wrinkles but the whole body.

I better start to behave my age now, not 21 anymore!

My good friend Virginia, Alpha my International student and I  started our journey at 7 am on Thursday 31 July.

We traveled from Upper Hutt to Pirongia a small rural town near Hamilton. It is about an eight to ten hours journey. The weather was overcast all the way.

Gratitude : My first contribution in sharing gratitude

GRATITUDE

Colline at

is going to dedicate a post every Wednesday on

GRATITUDE

 Everybody is welcome to tell what made you/them grateful

At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.
