Living Arrows 23/52

Living Arrows

I am taking part in Donna from What the Redhead Said‘s Living Arrows – which is a celebration of childhood!

We could all do with a little more celebration in our lives!

To quote Donna, “The project originally took it’s name from a poem by Kahlil Gibran, “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” and every Monday we share a moment from our week and invite others to do the same as part of this linky.”





Week 23/52 Living Arrows

Staying in the Light

I haven’t really taken many images this week, what with the catastrophic events happening around the country and working at art show openings, the time I have had off I’ve spent cuddling my little one, wondering how people can hate people who are different. They were all babies once, all innocent and born into what they were born into, whether that be western culture or Islam, we shouldn’t hate people for being different. Any action taken in other countries should now be voted on by the public. The Governments have for too long made decisions such as Iraq War, action in Libya and Syria that innocent people are now paying the price for.

When I returned from work on Saturday, my little one was playing in the study, his dad’s art supplies being his new favourite thing to knock off the shelves. The light beaming through the window was perfect and very poignant of the week gone by – we must stay in the light.

(For usual readers of my living arrows posts, this may seem to be a bit deep for me, as previously mentioned I’ve been working in art shows all week… it sometimes rubs off hehe).

    Gorgeous photos Nic and great words. It’s so easy to forget that we’re all born the same and it’s how we’re taught from there that shapes us. x
