Reliving It

There is only one day at the moment I can take the camera out in Samoa and that's Sunday. Being a very religious and observant nation, Sunday morning is considered untouchable and a time for church and family. So it's really only Sunday afternoon. Many of the beaches require payment to visit so you have to pick carefully. And for the fourth Sunday out of four the sky is grey, the rain is falling and the likelihood of a great tropical island shot is minimal.

So I am sitting on the couch, waiting for afternoon and hoping for an afternoon blue sky. It takes a few hours to drive around the island so that might be the activity de jour & I'll take the camera just in case a minor miracle happens. As I'm sitting here I've been go through old photos and old blogs. I've been picking out favourite stories to re-read and favourite photos to critique. It's been a good hour or so. Nothing wrong with reliving a good memory or moment you froze in time. I've thought about the lessons I've learnt as a result and can't wait for the opportunities ahead.

We often hear how being selfish isn't a character trait we should aspire to behold. But sometimes being just a little self indulgent can reward you with some good vibes and good memories. As long as it's not your default setting I don't think it's such a bad thing.

So I reposting a few favourites, because going back through them has made me feel good. I'd like to share the things that are making my wait for the classic tropic blue skies and beach images of Samoa to appear a little more enjoyable.

I think I had already kept those as my favorites, but it is amazing to see them again. Brilliant images
