Marsha’s Wednesday Quotes #11: A Bridge/To Bridge

I have confined myself to some of the bridges close to my place, by close I mean withing twenty kilometres.

“The crackling sounds of an old and tired bridge can best be understood by an old and tired person! Those who have carried the burden of life for so long are the ones who understand each other best!”
Mehmet Murat ildan

The bridge over the Mann River at Cangi

“In the rainy season, sometimes to get to the first lesson we had to run really quick, because we had to cross the river to school and we’d have to go up and down the bank to find a place to cross because there is no bridge.”
Haile Gebrselassie

“Theater is a space where you cross over from everyday life, because there are real people in that moment moving in front of you – you’re being invited to believe in a story and cross that bridge.”
Cate Blanchett

And one more for fun

“I was the kid who stared out the window. I fantasized myself on the deck of pirate ships – Cussler at the bridge.”
― Clive Cussler

A Paper Daisy

Leanne’s Monochrome Madness
Bren’s Mid-Week Monochrome

This week I decided to do something a bit different. I love Paper daisies and when I converted one to Monochrome, I was unsure, so I did another.

Do you have a preference?

Not quite a teenager

I have been informed by WordPress that today is my Anniversary of blogging. Yes I am a twelve year old blogger.
I did do a few posts back in 2012 but no where as many as I do now. Back then I did 12 posts for the whole year!!!

This is one of my early posts, inspired to share after one of my European holidays. I hope you like to look back at my Tales of a Distant Farm. In keeping with my European Thursday Doors theme, I am including another door from Italy with a surprise behind that door.

That year I was also in cooking mode and this is one of mine which was modified from other recipes

That’s one milestone I guess so its on to the next posts to inflict my bit of Australia on your screens, things to make you go ohhh ahhh and some to make you scream 😂
