Photographs and Bookmarks


Earlobes never defy gravity; they increase in length by an average of 0.22 millimeters every year. Is an 18 millimeters increment significant by the age of 80?

Photographs are my bookmarks, I lay them in Cerok Tokun every week. I should have had one in every meter at the same age if I still manage to hike, while seeing my earlobes swinging left and right like a pendulum of a time machine.

Rather than regret not doing what my heart lead me to, I continue to bookmark.

Growing earlobes should not be used as an excuse for slowing me down.

The lobes of the ears and nose are the organs that keep growing throughout life :))
I like the blur!

Yes, we need to follow our hearts and not worry about what our earlobes are doing! I always enjoy your photographs and insights. :)

You are too funny! I can picture you with swaying earlobes (of course I don't know what your face looks like, but I've got the earlobes now!)

such a cool picture!
And you are right, growing earlobes shouldn't slow you down :)

Steve E said...

Maybe my earlobes didn't slow me down but, both event occurred at same time.

YOU are SOME TALENTED human, Sir!

Debbie said...

Rainfield, you are so funny sometimes! We are camping this week in our small van and as I read this post, I was looking at my husband sitting in the chair right beside me ...his earlobes are not swinging just yet (but he has 6 years before he reaches 80, so who knows what will happen in that time !)...
(And I won't even talk about my age or my earlobes ;>)))!!!!

My advice as an old(er) person: Just don't worry about earlobes and other signs of aging, because who cares? And keep on doing what you're doing and sharing your thoughts and pictures with the world! We thank you for it!!!

I didn't know all this about earlobes. See what you can learn blogging!

betchai said...

i love the idea of bookmarking growing earlobes, the inspiring symbol of wisdom :)

Deb Crecelius said...

Love the tying together of time passing and bookmarks.
Or growing earlobes.

Cherry said...

Your wonderful chosen journey is one which takes you to places most of us have never been--nor knew existed. To that inner world. I looked at the web of Mr Spider, and remembered that all I've done is break down his home.

What DESTRUCTION, in woods, at home, on jobs, with people (interactions), for which I had to make as any as possible, amends, and try to live a different life--which is working..believe this, I now "talk" to spiders, other insects. With mosquitos--as important as they are, I now realize...

Hey, I say TOO MUCH!
Goodbye!

Unfortunately, rainfield, my growing rear end has certainly slowed me down.
