October moments....

In October my mind has been elsewhere.
Still there where some moments..
Here they are...



 
 Beautiful sunset early in the month...

 
Warm weather and a flower belonging to the summermonths...
 
 

 
For the first time in fiftheen years, my hair is long enough to be plaited..




 
October neighbourhood...
 
 
October tree..


 
A leaf that fell down just in front of my feet..
 


 
And than the rain...
And lots of it...

E is for Ergo...

From the archives  
Autumn in the park - October 2011

 



 
 Ergo - this latin word that has crept into the vocabulary. I have never learnt latin so I had to look it up in a dictionary to find out the true meaning of the word. According to my Oxford Dictionary it meens something as simple as therefore.

Lately there has been a lot of thinking going on in my head. As a result, this sentence from my philosopy course when I first started university came into my mind:
 Cogito ergo sum- I think, therefore I am.

So this word ergo lingered in my mind, because I use it in my daily speech without ever having thought about what it really means or where it came from. And I am not the only one. It is a part of our language. And I actually found out that we use it correctly.

Ergo - a little word, that made me ponder its true meaning and origin, ergo it deserves it own little blogpost.

D is for Doors....



In the photo above is the door of my local church. I run past it on one of the routes I take on my runs. I have often admired the rich and beautiful ornamentation of it.

We have just bought a new front door at the house in the country, and I was pondering the subject doors as I ran past the church door one day. There are so many things to think about when you buy a new door; size, should it have a window? how many? how big? do we need any ornamentation? what colour? The list goes on. I never knew there was so many things to think about!

In my previous career - in a different life I led - we once negotitated a contract with a doorfactory. I remember thinking at the time - doors!! - how boring!! But  how needed!

Doors take you out in to the world and they bring you back in to the safehaven of your own place. Then you have the metaphorical ones that opens and closes. They bring you out into the world or leave things behind. When you go through these ones you don't always know if you have gone outside or inside, or if you can turn and go back through it again if it turnes out to be to cold on the other side. But there is always a door leading somewhere.

How could I ever think that doors where boring!
