  1. How true! It’s hard to recapture that no-boundaries imagination we had when a child.

        We know that Seneca was describing fear and I thought of Sofagirl’s post ‘Nothing to fear but fear itself’ – and then of people who have hypochondriacal tendencies, where reality comes last and reason and logic give way to the inner machinations of the mind (not the Spongebob variety!) – No boundaries can be a terrible thing, but, like you, I prefer to look at the terrific side of endless !! and Winstonmoreton’s pearl in the oyster !!

        • I think I used to be one of those hypochondriacs! Then I got cancer and it cured me of hypochondria forever…

    I imagined a pearl in oyster shell and then something else before I saw good old mother earth.

    • I had it in the archives. Nasa made them public a while ago but can’t quite remember from which orbiting spaceship they were taken.
