Flowers Poem By Edwin Curran


Flowers are the music of the ground.


From earth’s lips, spoken without sound.

The Versatile Blogger Award

Few days ago my new online friend, pinay e-motion, has left me a comment on my post here says:

Hi Inge,

Hi, I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award. I think your post is great. You have impressed me not only in your ability to discuss different interesting topics in your blogs, but have also captivated me in your ability to capture different great images through your genius manipulation of the lens. I hope you’ll consider accepting it and the acceptance rule: Versatile Blogger Award.

Have a nice day!

Oh wow! She’s really surprising me since we’ve just met online less than a month until now. We had a little chat when we met first time and apparently she could speak Indonesian, my mother language, though she’s from Philippine! How nice is that?! So we ended up ‘speaking’ (or I should say writing) in Indonesian and her writing is very good!

Now she’s nominated me for The Versatile Blogger Award (VBA) with other 14 bloggers here. What an honour! Thank you very much for the nomination, pinay e-motion!

I dedicated this post for all my followers as well as I’ve reached a hundred followers until now. Many thanks to all of you!

I hope that my nominee-bloggers would like to pass this award to other bloggers and follow the VBA rules as follows:

  1. You must give credit to the person that has nominated you and create a link to their blog in your post.

  2. You must create a list of 15 blogs that you enjoy most and link to those as well. Then you must go and tell them you have nominated them. That means if you do not have 15, you cannot do this step. If you do not complete this step, then you cannot claim this award.

  3. Finally, you must create a list of seven things about yourself.

Success Based on Spiritual Wealth

Light Reflection of Lent


To mark The Season of Lent this year that would has been just started today and known as Ash Wednesday then I would like to present an image that relate to that event or theme.

This image I took in March 2010 just few days before Easter where priests were giving Sacrament of Penance.

The location is inside The Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ The King Liverpool. The sun was very bright at the time. I couldn’t remember whether it was raining before or not. As many church in England or Europe where their windows are made from colored glass so is this Cathedral Church. That is why when the sun shines very bright then we could see its light reflected by the colored glass. Just beautiful!

I wish everybody have a good Lent especially those who celebrate it. It’s time to reflect our lives more deeply during The Lent. I took this opportunity to share Pope Benedict XVI’s message for Lent 2012.

I tried to capture the sunshine with my Samsung Digimax A7. It just shows how bright the sun was. It was so shiny.
