Letters To The Universe… The Ahhh Edition

Dear Cluddunt,
Such a lovely place to rest and relax, on the beach, by the sea, for up to ten or eleven hours a day – or longer if I so wished. I do need some sleep though, well, it’s a necessity with all this relaxing!

Dear The Word Om,
How relaxing are you? Even your definition, a mystic syllable, considered the most sacred mantra in Hinduism and Tibetan Buddhism. It appears at the beginning and end of most Sanskrit recitations, prayers, and texts, is relaxing! Ahhh! I mean, Om!

Dear Blogland,
Please don’t forget about my little celebration on Saturday – I’m about to post my 2,500th post here on Beyond the Sphere, and invite you to add a comment linking to anything in Blogland you feel would be of interest to others. Even though I’m sunning myself on a tropical island, I shall still be joining in the fun throughout the day and beyond. Anyone who comments will become one of the Twenty-five Hundred, to boot! 2,500 posts already??? Arrrggghhh!!!! How time flies!

Dear Joke Lovers,
How do pirates know that they are pirates? They think, therefore they arrrrrrgh! Think about it for a bit, and then the ‘ahhh’ moment will dawn.

Dear Cyclists,
Now, you know that you make me go ‘arrgh!’ when you cycle carelessly through a red traffic light, or on the footpath, or at night without your lights on, or at night on the footpath without your lights on whilst dressed all in black. Well, the other day, one of you made me go ‘arrgh’ again. This time, however, you were on the road, and not a traffic light was in sight. You even had your light on… but this was the problem. Why on Earth do you think using a strobe light would be a good idea? Not only did you blind me (and I was on the other side of the road as you rode towards me) you could cause problems with people who are sensitive to such lights. Please be more considerate in future!

Dear New Visitor To The Lake,
Very pleased to meet you, I hope you enjoyed your visit and will return soon. All visitors to the Lake have to have a photo or two taken, which is customary. I did this when I saw you, but the camera on the mobile phone isn’t as good at the moment as it should be. I know the photos do you no justice. I believe you to be a cormorant, but I’m sure I’ll be corrected if I’m wrong.

Dear Spring,
Nice to see you have Sprung! And our clocks move forwards one hour on Saturday night / Sunday morning, which is always another sign… but this met me the other day by the Lake: Blossom. Fabulous!

Dear Winter,
Yes, I can see you trying to hang on with all your might… but nope. Spring is here, and it is time for you to give way to it! Ah, that Feels Good!

Dear The Weekend,
Here you are once again! Always good! And this weekend I wonder how many of the Twenty-five Hundred we will see or get to know? Time will tell!

And Finally, Dear Imagination,
May you constantly fill us all with joy and ideas. May you constantly provide us with interpretation and humour. May you always shine through whatever darkness there is or may be… and please know that I for one appreciate you being around. Just wanted to say it, that’s all!

Thank you for reading,

P.S. I’m ending this post with a few photos of the new visitor to the Lake. I believe it to be a cormorant…

…now, I’m not saying I’m right, however, but I could be! Please advise if you know what it is (the speckly one with the purply-blue feet), so that I too may once again go ‘ahhh!’ Apologies for the rather blurry photos, and have an absolutely fabulous weekend!

  1. Fantastic photo of the blossoms on the tree. Simply gorgeous.

    Re the bird: I consulted the oracle regarding the new visitor to the lake, and Mr.C said it could be a young Cormorant or a Shag. But he was placing his money on the young Cormorant.

    So I did what any decent internet user would do – I consulted with the RSPB, and I think I’m in agreement with Mr.Cobs. Young Cormorant.

    See here for what I found on the RSPB: https://www.rspb.org.uk/birds-and-wildlife/wildlife-guides/bird-a-z/cormorant/

    GREAT photographs Tom. Very well done that man!
