May – The Month of Rendez-Vous

001 A - Lily of the ValleyGood morning everybody!  Here comes the “Lilly of the Valley,” we are already in the month of May.  I can believe it, since the weather has gotten warmer, and the skies are blue, and the mornings come earlier. Surely winter has packed up – “smile”

fiori aprile 2011 003It has been so many months in waiting, and as well with lots of thinking rotating my mind about how great it will be to get outdoors… be a photographer through the lenses of my camera.  Everything around seems beautiful, the boats on the rivers, the green trees, the flowers and the ice cream van is right there on the bank of the river.  And the stream of humanity combined with the wonderful aspects of summer, all things are bright and beautiful.I wouldn’t lie, we had April showers for many days. Is that what we say? – “April showers bring May flowers,” well, let the summer begins, holidays, travel, home-made juice, flip-flops, sunglasses,  early mornings, late nights, ooohhh I can’t seem to get rid of those ideas, what about you?127

113Last night before I wrote this post, I thought back to my own graduation day.   I can barely think what happened to all the students who graduated with me, where they are or what has happened with them.  All I can think is that most of them may be having grown up children.  They are all scattered around the world, since some of them have traveled to different countries.  I also have moved away from home in the last 20 years and I have never returned.  Even my face book pages are from time to time having images of my friends, birthdays, social gatherings of their own children and families.  There are mums my age and those of whom I have learned who have passed away.  Some of my friends’ children can be seen in pictures cuddling their own children.  After all this is social media, a platform or way for some of us to express our joys, achievements, griefs, highs and lows.There comes a time that change emergesAnd here we are, kicking summer in Europe after all the cold winter nights.  We cannot wait to wear flip-flops in the high degree sunshine.  The smell of Lavender and scented flowers blooming spreading their scents in the winds reminds me of once a tropical lifestyle I lived many years ago.DSC_0076With all my experiences I have about seasons, I am keen that May is one of the busiest months for social rendezvous, and I can comprehend why. There are weddings, graduations, Proms, first communions, school festivals, and many more celebrations. 048 prom nightWell graduations for our students – new beginnings, new ideas, some will return home, some will catch the winds in their sails, and some will embrace new horizons. There is nothing impossible in this life, and there is a world out there!  DSC_0002Above and below are pictures from my daughter’s Graduation Ceremony in July 2016DSC_0003May I wish all students who will be graduating this summer, good luck for a bright future full of happiness!DSC_0006Well my beautiful people, thank you for visiting.
