I saw Elaine's latest posting on her blog fun-as-a-gran and thought, I would like to join in with that!
I am talking about taking a photograph and sharing it weekly with others and viewing theirs too!
http://stickyfingers1.blogspot.com/ I feel inspired and would love to share some of my favourites!
On this day I was very privileged to be part of the King's ceremony, it was totally spell binding and I got to see behind the scenes as I was accompanying a UN ambassador, being her Nanny and this little lady was my charge.
This was the Reed dance, where thousands of the young maidens of Swaziland, get to dance in front of the King and he gets to chose a wife from them, he already had several wives and whilst I was living there was lucky to witness this, I was shocked so many women appeared from all over the little Kingdom, bare breasted and dancing, with bells around there ankles and little strips of skirts on.
I am a single Mum lucky to have my four children, I don't think about what we don't have but what we do have, I have been so lucky to experience so many unique things on my travels, I am pleased to look back and think WOW, I was there!
We are all in a hurry, have so much to do, but if your reading this, then when next outside going somewhere then take a moment, look around at the people and see if you can see anyone smiling, then do something special, smile at random people, for a smile costs nothing, but can so brighten someones day unknowingly!
Thanks to Tara at stickyfingers for bringing back all these happy memories for me, sorry for the late entry, but it took me some time to find my photos and scan them in
Big hugs to all,
