Weekly Photo Challenge: Endurance (Forbidden City, Beijing)

 

 

Beijing, China’s Forbidden City, for me, is one of the embodiment of endurance. It was first built during the MIng Dynasty (1368-1644) and it is still standing. Amazing!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Adventure (life)

Life is an adventure in itself. It’s the greatest, most challenging adventure there is. Survival, of course is the main goal whether it is your personal survival, that of your genes, species or the world. For me, nothing captures this as much as a portrait of a child (which in this case is my cousin) blissfully playing. 

 

To what extent would you influence children’s development, i.e. life adventure?

Weekly Photo Challenge: Dialogue

My response to this week’s photo challenge are two pictures that asks each other (and us) ‘who needs more of our attention’? Is it the endangered species or the people who is (possibly) going to die slowly without our help.

What do you think? Who needs more of our help?

A Day Out with Ninja Turtles,Michael Jordan and Barney Stinson

Today’s Prompt: Go down the rabbit hole with Alice; play quidditch with Harry Potter; float down the river with Huck Finn… If you could choose three fictional events or adventures to experience yourself, what would they be?

This is how it’ll go down.

First, I’ll have a pizza or five with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turles.

Then, I’ll play basketball with Michael Jordan, Bugs Bunny and their friends (SpaceJam):

Finally, I’ll call my buddy Barney Stinson (How I Met Your Mother) and party all night. ‘Up top’!

The Cat that wanted a Bowl of Fish Soup but despised Beach Towels

Today’s Daily Prompt: Today, you can write about whatever you want – but your post must include, in whatever role you see fit, a cat, a bowl of soup, and a beach towel.

“Hey human, why did you buy me a beach towel when you know I hate getting wet?! Oy vey! Just get me a bowl of fish soup and get out of my sight!!”

The Guitar Man

Today’s Daily Prompt: Do you play an instrument? Is there a musical instrument whose sound you find particularly pleasing? Tell us a story about your experience or relationship with an instrument of your choice.

Headstocks

Aside from my family, friends and students, the only things that I love in this world are my guitars. I love the way each of them sounds and the way I respond to their own distinct qualities. When I plug one in and hit my first note or chord I could transport to any place in the world. They could also change or match my mood. I play my Telecaster when I’m excited or giddy. I play my Stratocaster or my Les Paul when I feel aggresive, angry or anxious. My AS75 (not on the picture) is for days when I’m sad or want to calm down. My RG and JS (again not on the picture) are for when I want to be transported into space. Time flies when I play my guitars.
