Give Me Stairs, Anyday

Welcome to this random post, I hope you enjoy it. Today’s one-word prompt is ‘descend’ and this is the first thing that came to mind.

Descend and ‘upscend’ aka going down stairs or going up stairs. It is easier to go down than up although I am known to climb stairs versus getting into an elevator.

By far the most popular use of the word descend is in the context of people moving towards a place as in the crowds descended on the village to hear the band play.

I’m in the middle of an assignment for Social Entrepreneurship and my unusually usual and timeless wisdom and coherence has descended into randomness and absurdity.

Tomorrow is another day.

PS: The word ‘upscend’ in paragraph 1 doesn’t exist as far as I know. I made it up for this post. I like the sound of it as the opposite of descend, don’t you?

Descend.

 

How Are You Doing? It’s Been A While…

…two weeks in fact, give or take a day or so, that I haven’t blogged here or anywhere else for that matter. Not even for the favourite WordPress weekly photo challenge.


This week’s theme is an easy one – Optimistic. For someone who snaps pics every day it should be easy. Not lately though. So I present to you instead, a selection of pics which will go some-ways towards showing you what I’ve been up in January, so far. I’ll allow the captions to tell the story.

Photos unfiltered nor post-processed, just in case you’re wondering at their less than pristine quality.
