We here in T&T are officially as declared by The Met Office, in The Dry Season (we only have 2 seasons The Wet and The Dry - no Winter Spring) In terms of cultural aspects We are in The Carnival Season but the pandemic will prevent crowd activies though the music keeps the mood

You've heard about the Monday Blues well this is Monday WRites (musing on the definition here of rite, as any customary observance for eg the rite of afternoon tea). 
Welcome to Monday WRites #281: A Happy Monday to all. Be Safe.

#114: Road Trippin', Part VI

AND



Sometimes the great bones of my life feel so heavy, not blaming pandemic days tolling high rates of casualties and higher still quotients of grief. The fact remains that the healthy and the sick still possess qualities of humanity's negative yin yang sets

Betrayal will not pause to stare at corona viruses however tiny or invisible to the naked eyes. Fake smiles behind masks are not hiding, they are just comfortable in their new normal gizmo. Fake news will continue to thrive for there are always makers of untruths and sensationalisms.

Sigh; hope is a thing with wings, and so are light gossamer butterflies, trusting the wind to be kind to their weight just like the diaphanous webs which continue to exist; because spiders are what they are. They will spin their silks, regardless of  time or the culture of days.

  8. Hello Gillena! It always seems to be a "dry season" where I live as we have been in drought the past few years. I hope that carnival season can still be enjoyed there, even with no crowds. Happy and Healthy New Year! I loved your cheerful mosaic

  12. I love the image of those gossamer butterflies 'trusting the wind
    to be kind to their weight' - that's how I've been feeling this past year.
