I am a rock


In response to
Is it easy for you to ask for help when you need it, or do you prefer to rely only on yourself?Photographers, artists, poets: show us SELF.


The waves of life
Wash over my strong exteriors,
White foam cascades in a smothering blanket
Still I stand strong
A point of protection for the beautiful corals
A steady point for them to cling to
When the tides flow strong
For without me they would slide into the depths of darkness
But, inside the magma still pulsates hot,
Through cracks in the otherwise solid shell
It sneaks to the surface in a squishy mess,
And it is the corals that hold that part of me in place.

Author: Travelling Macs

A mum to 2 grown up children with young families of their own, who always make me proud. I'm a wife, grandmother,friend, sister, a recently retired teacher and a beginning ukulele player. I love eating great food but am becoming interested in cooking. Love traveling around this great country in which I live and worldwide more recently. Often found traveling with my husband Brian. I write for pleasure and if it's read (and enjoyed) by others then that's a bonus! 2014 saw me begin the 'new' me. Working hard at leaving the fear of 'what if' behind and replacing it with YOLO adventures. :)
