I remember it took me ages waiting to get a picture of these birds to form a perfect line. I could have stayed there all day and it was never going to happen.
This picture reminds me of my daughter's first school photo which I should drag out sometime because it always makes me cringe then laugh. There she was in the centre of the front row. Every other child was facing the camera smiling sweetly. She on the other hand was facing sideways laughing hysterically. "Why did you do that?", I asked her. "Because everyone else was doing the same thing and I wanted to be different", she replied. She was thrilled with the photo. The photographer must have groaned loudly. As did I.
Everyone's idea of how their ducks should line up is different. What's perfect to some is imperfect to others.
Me? I've had trouble getting the ducks lined up in the same direction let alone a straight line over the past couple of months so blogging has suddenly taken a nosedive into oblivion.
However, I decided I had better update my blog as Lisleman sent out a blogger alert wondering why I had suddenly stopped blogging. I truly stopped blogging for the same reason I started blogging. The past I am trying to leave behind keeps raising its ugly head. And I am trying to take some targeted shots to sink it once and for all - Hallelujah!!!!!
I also want to publicly apologise to Linda Lou in particular for my abrupt absence because I was planning to write a review of her great book. It's coming soon...
Here is to more blogging in 2010 - my wish for you is that your ducks line up just the way you would like them to in the coming year in whatever shape or form works best for you.
Take Care all and if you want a good reason why spandex is not a safe look in public, watch this....a brave Scottish lass! She will be competing in the winter Olympic Games apparently and no doubt will get plenty of exposure from this video!
