Ripples, ruffled feathers and troubled waters

Calming scenes for me to focus on
as an antidote to a deranged phone caller.

Someone decided to have a wholly unexpected go at me yesterday
and I am having difficulty banishing
the upsetting exchange that ensued, from my thoughts.

(Not family, friend or blog-related I hasten to add,
but a particularly choleric individual
newly arrived on the periphery of my life.)


  1. May calm be restored. Your images are lovely, and That Tune is one that has always brought waves of happiness to my mind.


  2. Engaging images. Peace, but not as the world gives.

  3. It's the "wholly unexpected" hostility that always gets to me, much much more than what it's about; I quite understand why you should find it hard to forget about it. Just remind yourself that it says more about the other person than it does about you....

  4. I particularly like the rippled sand picture - it is almost sculptural - sorry to hear about the upset - hope you are feeling calmer now.

  5. Yes, every one of that person's family and contacts will know exactly what you have experienced, plus some extra twists specially for each person.

  6. I am sorry to hear that you were upset and I hope that you are feeling better now.

    1. A problem shared is a problem halved. Thank you for your sympathy.

  7. I will send Asafetida round, dear Lucille.

  8. I'm beginning to warm to you Ada. What is it they say? Keep your friends close but your enemies closer.

  9. Oh dear, I'm so sorry. I too hope that your feelings are beginning to unruffle.

  10. Gorgeous photos, really wonderful peaceful patterns. And I hope that the force field of craziness has diminished its power by now.
