I’d rather be…

Shadow of a man against a colourful mural

I didn’t intend to take part in this week’s photo challenge (I’d rather be…). As I spend some time each year away from loved ones, I make a rule not to wish I was anywhere else other than where I am. It’s a confidence trick I play on myself, a bit like when I was a youngster and used to set the bedside alarm clock a few minutes earlier than it was to try to persuade myself I needed to get up as soon as the alarm went off. It didn’t always work then, and it doesn’t now. 

Tonight, Mother and I were supposed to be going to my sister’s for one of her excellent curries, but it’s been snowed off as a precaution against the mini beast from the East. Meanwhile, my sweetheart, shown here in silhouette against the mural, is enjoying St. Patrick’s Day, Mississippi-style. He has his own WordPress blog now, so you can click here to take a peep at what I’m missing out on.

Now, if only my sister had a blog with a picture of her curry on, you could see what else I’m missing!

Wishing you a happy St. Patrick’s Day, wherever you happen to be!

  1. That’s a pretty cool image, the mural and the shadow! I went over to the other blog and was blown away by the size of the parade they have in Jackson MS, and of course by the very cool truck garden!

    1. Thank you, Dawn! It’s a cheerful shot, isn’t it? The shadow of my phone has crept into the far right, but luckily it’s camouflaged. 🙂

  2. If this isn’t an argument for bilocation, I don’t know what is. Really. There are times in life we do need to be in two places at once. Thanks for the link to the St. Paddy’s Day truck — what an extraordinary salute to green! The parade is proof positive of the good ideas that are born in pubs.
