Yellow Roses - Mellow Yellow Monday, 6-7-2010



Yellow Roses - Mellow Yellow Monday, 6-7-2010



As my life is growing shorter, I feel I can't afford to waste it. Things have to matter more, I can't squander a minute. I want to make the most of the time I have left. At 65, I can no longer delude myself that I have unlimited seconds, minutes, hours remaining. I can't dwell on the regrets but I can look to the future and make the most of what still remains. I fully intend to do that as long as I remain on this earth.










Check in at Mellow Yellow Monday to participate or see more yellow pictures!

I'll be bound for two nights at lighthouse hostels, about 30 miles from home, with my dear friend, Silvia, enjoying a little scenic interlude on the Pacific coast.  I'll catch up on your wonderful blogs and my comments on Wednesday!

  10. Yellow rose for me, too!

    Carmen, it will be great to have you back here refreshed, and raring to go. Hope your time away from blogging is well-spent. I have a hunch we're in for some much-beautied photos soon.
