Rocky Reflection – Mundane Monday

I’ve missed sharing mundane Monday photos and jumping back into it…with enough gusto I hope.

Water, Water Everywhere or NOT so Everywhere…

71 percent of the Earth is covered by water and every living thing thrives on water simply because WATER is LIFE.

I have seen water in many ramifications, from the abundance of the Oceans to bottled water of varieties, rainfall in the Tropics to the aridity of living in the Desert and one thing that I’ve found is that every living thing seeks out water. Unfortunately, there are places that lack this bare necessity that many take for granted, which reminds me of a well-articulated post I read earlier, written by Robert.

One of the things that I miss living in the UAE is rainfall. It’s such a rare occurrence and buying bottled water is the norm because the desert lacks a generous abundance of potable water.

Hydration…Mundane Monday

Mundane Monday challenge is created to find beauty in almost everything.

The challenge is simple : find beauty in everyday mundane things, capture the beauty and upload the photographs.

Water[1]

I woke up this morning and the first thought I had on my mind was to drink some water.

That got me thinking a lot about water. An essential need of human life. Features in every ramification of our lives.

Have you noticed that when you are thirsty for water, no other drink can quench that thirst?

It also takes my mind to the fact where most of us take clean water to drink for granted, that there are places on Earth where people have to walk for miles to find clean water to drink.

She is amazing at describing love and life in her poems. She creates such beautiful images with her words. Truly, she is a talented writer and I’m so excited to have her poetry book and to continue reading through it.

Hydrate….Every day beautiful people # 37

Drink lots of water and give your liver a surprise. Your skin, hair, mind and body will thank you.

How do you see the glass of water of your life, half full or half empty? Perspectives and attitude make a lot of difference.

Out of the silent breath

Dance to your heart’s delight my African child, until echoes of your stamping feet, beating heart; bright eyes, smiling lips; and waving hands, resonates over and over like thunder claps, reverberating throughout the Universe.

Rolling fields and Sandy banks…

Today’s Photo 101 theme is landscape and cropping where nature is our main subject, or a sweeping panorama of an entire city, town or industrial area.

A few shots were taken during this morning’s walk-about and many are from the previous week.

 

Nature’s Bounty….

It’s’ my belief that most of us have the natural inclination to look up to the skies early in the mornings and throughout the duration of each given day.

Sometimes, I spend times looking at the clouds shapes and twist up silly tales depending on what the cloud represents. This we do especially when on a long drive. I ask my children to look at a could and identify an animal or any object and say something in relation to the object found.

‘Nature is bountiful in giving and when we look deeply, we have communion with it for the poetry and stories hidden in the clouds and on Earth are endless.‘ Jacqueline Oby-Ikocha

Below is a composition of some of the photos that I took at different times for today’s Photo 101 theme ‘Natural World.’ None has been edited.
