Echoes of Light

By TanyaH
First upload in a while. All the doom and gloom in the news recently leaves its mark, unfortunately.

Taken on the phone, then faffed around with in PS - I added a couple of textures, played with a couple of blend modes and opacity levels, added some words and this is where it got to before the brain thought "that'll do".

Today, be a light for someone else in a world that seems darker every day Smile

There is still beauty in the world although some days it is hard to believe... Beautiful image and poem which was just what I needed today. Smile

Things haven't been a barrel of laughs lately.
On a personal note things haven't been so good at times either.
Very nicely done Tanya, and welcome back.

It happens to be Mobile Monday, so this is good.

Thank you Smile Sometimes, life's just crap ... no other way of cutting it! But in that crapiness, there's still light and hope, love and laughter ... even if it is a bit manic at times.

There's an old saying - "Faith is the bird that feels the light and sings when the dawn is still dark."

It's a bit trite, sure, but it's also quite true.

'It is better to light a cnadle than to curse the dark.'

Thank you for lighting this candle today, Tanya, and for lighting many others over the years. Just because there are many people devoted to darkness and disorder does not mean that they will extinguish the light.

I detect a trace of ironic, dark humour in your words, Tanya - I may be completely wrong and mis-reading what you write, but if in the midst of all the crap that happens, if you can keep hold of your humour, no matter how dark things get, then you have not lost...

p.s. you made a positive move by uploading again - we've missed you.

I must agree with my talented and learned friend! Beautiful image and beautiful poem,. Well, No.2 of 2, you get my humble award first for being a clever clogsWink and secondly for you and Isobel for being my 'light' for today.

For Isabel, Oliver, Mike, Keith, John, Alun, Phil, Malc, Yogendra and Dave - thank you for your kind words and the welcome back. And for Yogendra, Pete (Peco) and Dave - you get extra biscuits for liking this enough to give it your user awards Wink

As long as one person looks towards the light, it'll never go out.

Ah, Malc - it's a quirk of my strange nature that no matter how crap life gets, I'll always find the humour in there somewhere! Rightly or wrongly, it's kept me going at times when it would have been so easy to give in and give up. But hey - laugh in the face of adversity and stick two fingers up to the crap, that's my motto Grin

Can't believe I'm actually getting emotional here (I don't do that sh*t normally), but yeah ... I've missed you lot too Smile

Good to see you back on here, Tanya 😀 A very lovely capture and presentation, a nice bit of faffing too! 👍 Once you start, it is hard to decide just when to stop faffing! 😁
