Pretty in pink

The connectivity issue last night wasn't actually the same problem as the night before. On Thursday evening, an auto accident took out a pole which in turn took out our cable.

Last night, we were out of town. I accepted an award for the newspaper where I work. It was an award from the Alabama Main Street organization and it was for promotion work the paper does for the local Main Street effort. I was flattered that the publisher asked Jilda and me to attend the event. And I was amazed at all the work other cities are doing across the state to revive downtown areas.

When we returned to the hotel after the event, I logged onto the WIFI but it would not connect. So that resulted in the post last night.

Duta, who reads my blog made a comment that resonated with me.

We've become so accustomed to conveniences that we get irritated when we don't have them for a while. In the scheme of things, not having internet connectivity is a minor thing.

Duta's comment: It's highly irritating, but it's good to be reminded from time to time that we might be without electricity, without internet, without food, without water. We should, at least, think of various life scenarios, as we live in the times of Climate Change - and this Change is not going to go away.

The picture below has nothing to do with this post. When we walked this evening, I saw this girl flitting from flower to flower. I think she looks pretty in pink.


  1. I enjoy and appreciate Duta's insightful comments.

  2. It is always nice to be recognized for work you enjoy!

  3. That is so true for kids nowadays. They don't even know how to play outside and use their imagination.

  4. Duta is right.
    Love the 'pink' glasses you gave us to admire.

  5. Congratulations for the award. It was well deserved, I'm sure.
    I have to agree with Duta too.
    Enjoy the weekend.
    Hugs, Julia

  6. Terrific picture of the butterfly flying from one pink flower to another!
    Thank you and Jilda for your kind words, and thanks to the other commenters that agree with my view.
    It's that just that so far, we seem to be helpless about Climate, and I think this should increase our alertness and make us think what next.
