Flashback Friday


"Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing."

I do so agree with that. I shrivel inside everytime I read a piece from some self-declared expert, who pompously declares that...conker games should be banned, children's playgrounds covered in a foot of rubber, helmets to be worn on tricycles, snow never to be thrown and on and on ad infinitum.
As kids my brothers and I ran free between meals...we roamed, climbed, jumped, slid, threw and dug, we fished with bent pins on string, clamboured over bomb sites [even finding an unexploded mortar bobm that we knew better than to touch] We breathed fresh air and bacteria, stored up anti-bodies and were rosy cheeked and healthy.
What spoil sports these experts are, what treasured memories they are stealing in the name of the NANNY STATE.

I love the elegance of your blog site.

Wonderful quote that speaks volumes to me, as you know my favorite one includes " being an adventure to be lived."
You were definitely very cute and still are.;)
Have a great weekend.;))
