Time and Physics

Jeux de miroir @Bordeaux

Bathed in rain, caressed by sun, the pavement steams below my feet. Releasing the countless memories of those who have trodden here before, it creates an atmosphere where new ones will be made.

 

 

This weekends Trifextra's prompt:  33 words inspired by the above photo.

  5. Hello my sweet Valerie! I am a bad blog bud! I haven't been to my POBox at all this week, and I don't have minute today. Big day tomorrow! TWO of my grandkids are having birthday parties; one 85 minutes away and the other back at my home for the afternoon. Then I can breath. Thanks for your sweet compliment on the Friday Feature!!! Awesome of you.

  10. The 33-word challenge is helpful to me, since I tend to ramble on a bit! Your capture of this moment, the quantum feel of time and timelessness, is captivating. I loved it. Peace, Amy

  16. I've read a bunch of these, and yours is the first one that embraces the mist as something other than threatening. I admit, I love your nostalgia and hope co-mingled.
