Stepping out of my mad square circles.

Time and I have never gotten on!In my youth, I took it for granted, ignored it and, worst of all, wasted it. Now, with a few more ounces of wisdom in my pocket, I respect it, treasure it and constantly try to hoax it into hang-out with me a little longer!
To no avail! It's pay back time. Time now ignores me and, I'm convinced, takes me for granted!
This strained relationship has me running constantly in mad square circles. Circles that end up leaving me stranded, brain spinning, arms flapping in a "in-between" timezone which always always ends being the past....!

There is still a spark of mischief to be found (if you look carefully) but incomparable to our crisp spring morning gallivant where legs and tails switched and pointed in all sorts gravity defying positions.

(Zig Zag is on the left)

We can confirm after sandy nosed nuzzles and soft whispers, Zig Zag is all grown-up and very much a soave and poised lady.

Shocked to the core...

Oslo is mourning. Horror has hit its core. The ripples spreading well beyond any physical border. To my friends out there. Thinking of you.

At this end, Extra curricula activities are in full swing just like "Tarzan" (above) and his crew.
Studio activities remain very active and strong. However time is sticking it's tongue out (once again). Various blog posts are in the making and have taken a comfy back seat. They will come to light (promise) as soon as, well, time smiles and says.... please?
