An evocative post that epitomises Oxford as much as Dreaming Spires.
Good one.

By the way, Hello in Greek is Sherete.

The picture of the ounts reminds me of the years I spent punting in Oxford more tha forty years ago. But I loved every moment and it is now a world away.

Thanks for the memory

Ah .. Oxford! I've been to Cambridge many times, but only passed briefly through Oxford - it looks just as beautiful but in a different way. Love the punts!

Thank you for taking part in ABC Wednesday! I hope you'll post again next week. :)

Penguins - move your cursor and take them for a walk !!

Say it as it is ......

Shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you'll land amongst the stars.

Look around !!!

What is this life, full of care,

We have no time to stand and stare?
