V is for Variety

Hello and good morning, -afternoon, -evening, dear people who all participate is this wonderful photo-meme, which is a joy to me, week after week, after week.
I’m always curious to what you come up with!

The challenging letter of this week is the and I've chosen for the word Variety

 If with anything at all,  the worlds content could be named in a single word,  it would be Variety if you ask me. Many things look a like but in totally are not. Only 2 kinds of people, male or female, but jet, not every man, not every woman is the same as the first next one. Variety in culture, who we live our lives, where we live, what we do because we need to, what we do because we want to, how we think, how we express ourselves, in which surroundings we live, our families, our hobby's .... There are so many things  I could name more but there's no need for it, you all know what I am talking about, don't you?

I love variety... in all sorts of ways, as everybody does I guess.

One of my favorite variety's occurs every week, here on my blog and many blogs more with participants of this meme. Every week all just use the same letter but the blogposts they post about it are very different, even when more participants choose the same word. It really is a surprise, over and over again, visiting a participant because I am curious what he/she has chosen this time.

Since its fully autumn over here in The Netherlands, including heavy storms, much rain and darker skies earlier in the day... I've chosen a photo which shows variety to.

Wishing you all a wonderful variety in every day life and experiences. That the beauty of life, no matter how great the variety in it, may colour your heart and soul in a great as possible variety of happy feelings and luck!   

Have ave a nice ABC-Wednesday-day / - week ~

U for Under Milkwood

Under Milkwood  is the most amusing play written for the radio in 1954 by the highly acclaimed Welsh writer and poet Dylan Thomas.

 The story is based around a fictional Welsh fishing village called Llareggub which, if you spell it backwards, it says 'Buggerall which is a sardonic term meaning nothing.

The village is full of quirky characters including Captain Cat who is blind and is haunted by the loss of his crew in a violent storm.


Captain Cat sleeping and dreaming of his lost crew.


This just a small offering this week as there was some confusion (caused by Google) so I abandoned my part written offering, only to be asked if I would carry on with it.


There is so much more to tell you about Under Milkwood ,which I shall in due course ! My enduring memories of this wonderful writing by Dylan Thomas is sitting around our huge radio with my family and hearing the dulcet tones of Richard Burton's voice narrating this wonderful tale.


 In 1972 it was made into a film starring Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor although it was quite good I could still close my eyes and just listen to the narration.

If I have captured your imagination enough and you haven't listened to the play, you can google it or check it out on You Tube.


My thanks and UNDISPUTED respect for Denise the devisor of ABCw, Roger editor, ably assisted by Leslie. Not forgetting the team workers who help to keep this wonderful meme together.

Best regards to all,

FromDi,

Abcw team.

T is for...

TEN

Ten years!!!

That's how long this blog has been around.  I joined at about the halfway point and it's been an interesting ride.

Anyone here who has been here since round one?

I'd love to see some of your early posts and hear how you feel the blog has evolved.

It's time to unveil the badge for round 20, our final round and I have to say this was one of the Toughest for me to do.

I knew what I wanted to do.  But I kept putting it off.

I believed that if I procrastinated long enough it would change the inevitable result.  But that never works, so with encouragement from Roger, I completed the final badge.

I only wish we had actual shirts.

So T is for T-shirt and for farewell Tour.

But mostly T is for Thank You to each of you who has stayed with us.
