SUNDAY POST: Surrounded

Ages ago a city vanished under the raging lava to be uncovered 17 centuries later and shown to the world. The dead city with so many traces of life remains as a reminder of once advanced civilisation.

In the middle of the yard of an anonymous house surrounded by ancient columns stands a tree, the subject of my take on the  Sunday post challenge.

Listen to Rodrigo Leao’s Vita brevis (as in Ars longa, vita brevis – or in my interpretation of Pompeii “Lives were extinguished, but art lives on”) 

Weekly Photo Challenge: GROWTH

With spring being the time of birth, summer certainly is the time of growth when every little thing in nature is bursting with life. A dandelion just may be a perfect representative of one of these little things showing the splendor of life and growth.

Here it is … a dandelion after it has reached the end of its growth cycle, just before being blown on the wind ….

Blow on it … Make a wish! While you are at it, listen to The Rolling Stones’ Dandelion.
