World in a Sphere

The inspirational quotation from Debbie at Travel With Intent

“My favourite thing is to go where I’ve never been.”   Diane Arbus

Travel the world
in a sphere
slowly spin
dropping down
again ascend
terrifyingly tall
startlingly small
wondrous world
playful planet
seeing sights
hearing harmony
holding tight
travel the world
in a sphere

Toowoomba Street Art

The Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #42: Creativity
Debbie from Travel with intent One Word Sunday: Memory

In January, I travelled to Toowoomba to see my daughter. One thing we enjoy is walking around the city discovering places and things. One day I said I wanted to walk the streets and lane ways to discover the street art. A memory of being in Toowoomba and seeing some of the local creativity on show.

I hope you enjoy a bit of a walk around looking at Street Art.

Cat in the Window

The photo challenge from Judy at Life Lessons: Cat in the Window

While travelling in France, we stayed in Dijon with a lovely couple in an AirBnB. They suggested we go to a nearby town, Beaune.  We were walking in Beaune when some people started to look across the road and up to a first story window. A couple of people spoke to us in French and then signalled us to look up. A magical moment shared with the people in the street.

Not really a Cat and not really in a window but three cats sitting outside of a window
