#One-liner Wednesday – celebrating change

Butterfly quoteLast week in the UK, the BBC Breakfast news program focussed on various aspects of menopause, discussing the physical and mental changes that around 50% of the population experience first-hand. The other 50% experience the backlash and spend most  of their time wondering what the heck happened.

I came across this quote while trying to identify a butterfly I’d seen while walking the pup. I think it sums up menopausal changes perfectly.

Have a wonderful Wednesday xx

This week’s midweek pondering is brought to you by Linda G Hill and my own slightly warped mind.

1. Make it one sentence. (Ooops!)

2. Try to make it either funny or inspirational.

3. Use our unique tag #1linerWeds.

4. Add our lovely badge to your post for extra exposure!

5. Have fun!

#JusJoJan 10th – Never the same twice!


“The biggest cliché in photography is sunrise and sunset.” – Catherine Opie.

How sad that two of nature’s most beautiful parts of the day should be reduced to photographic clichés, unoriginal and overused. Fortunately for me, I still get a real buzz out of them whenever I’m fortunate enough to witness either of them while armed with a camera (usually my phone!).

The image above was taken at sunrise, floating above the Valley of the Kings in a hot air balloon, looking back over the Nile to Luxor. Not a cliché in sight, in my opinion!

Happy Friday Eve everyone xx

Thanks to Linda G Hill for hosting JusJoJan and to Toortsie for supplying today’s word ‘sunrise’.
