Walking Along A Beach After A Storm And A Lesson About Time

Kingswood Cornwall

Some Sunday photos taken following the recent storm and heavy rain in Cornwall. We walked through the woods, along by the river - with a green orb in the picture ...

... and then onto the beach at Pentewan where the river meets the sea.

There was debris on the beach and the river had cut away deeply into the sand. We pottered along the shoreline picking up stones and shells, the only people about.

Amazingly, after our sandy walk the sky changed colour completely and the sun came out to play. Everything looked very different as we approached Pentewan village, the old harbour was calm and still.

Life, like the weather, can change very quickly. It's probably just as well to enjoy the things we love when we can.

Quotes:
There comes a point in your life when you realize how quickly time goes by, and how quickly it has gone. Then it really speeds up exponentially. With that, I think you start to put a lot of things into context; you start to see how huge the world is, and really, the universe. ~ Michael Keaton

You look at most artists, the arc of their career, there's a definite decline at the end. And that decline could set in at any time. In your 50s, or your 60s and 70s if you're lucky. Time goes by fast, and you've got to be busy all the time. ~ Seth

I know this much: that there is objective time, but also subjective time, the kind you wear on the inside of your wrist, next to where the pulse lies. And this personal time, which is the true time, is measured in your relationship to memory. ~ Julian Barnes

Time flames like a paraffin stove and what burns are the minutes I live. ~ Irving Layton

Why kill time when one can employ it. ~ Proverb

The most important gifts you can give are your love, time, and attention. Slow down, take time to smile and enjoy loved ones... life goes by way too fast. ~ Nishan Panwar

  1. Great pics and quotes. I've noticed that time does go by faster as we the years go by. Wish I could slow it down.

    1. It's strange, nearly everyone says that time is going faster.

  2. Gorgeous photos! You live in a beautiful spot, Mike. It seems like yesterday was new year's day, 2013. Now 2013 is nearly gone. It's all speeding by way too fast!

    1. Pentewan is where we walk quite often, when we had dogs we would always walk them in that area.

  3. Nice walk Mike and I see you captured a chem-trail in the sky over Pentewan as well.

    1. There are often chem-trails in the sky where I live. I used to blame the small airport at Newquay - about 16 miles from where I live - but not so sure nowadays.
