Time x Square

Time for another square month hosted by the lovely Becky. The photos don’t necessarily have to be of a timepiece, but are open to interpretation to reflect time in some way, or sayings such as ‘the passing of time’, ‘a stitch in time’, or time running away from you.

Day 24:  Time to Take Action

Although this is a time of year for excesses, I hope that we can all bear in mind the effect on our planet – buy only gifts that will be wanted and preferably not plastic; buy only enough food that will be eaten and not thrown away into landfill; wrap your presents in paper that can be recycled (that means no glitter) and remember the best things in life are free. A smile, a kind word, a hug.

In partnership with the Natural History Museum, the Cool Globes San Diego exhibit was displayed in and around Balboa Park, the San Diego Port, Seaport Village and the Embarcadero Marina Park from October 2008-March 2009.

Cool Globes: Hot Ideas for a Cooler Planet, is a public art exhibition designed to raise awareness of solutions to climate change.  Cool Globes grew out of a commitment at the Clinton Global Initiative in 2005, and was incorporated as a non-profit organisation in 2006.  Since that time, Cool Globes premiered in Chicago and went on tour across the country from Washington DC to San Francisco, San Diego, Sundance, Los Angeles, Houston and Cleveland.  In the fall of 2009, Cool Globes opened the first international exhibit in Copenhagen. From there our globes were in Geneva, Marseille, Vancouver, Amsterdam, Jerusalem and Boston.

It is our hope that the millions of people who have experienced the exhibit, leave with a vast array of solutions to climate change, and with one clear message….we can solve this.

To join in with the Squares challenge please visit Becky for instructions. Remember the only proper rule is that the photo must be SQUARE.

December Squares | Day Twenty-four

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. Those are definitely cool globes. Although, I feel slightly depressed that this was 10 years ago and there are still some in government denying climate change even exists. Sigh.
    Merry Christmas to you and your family, Jude! I hope you’ve had a lovely day. (It’s actually just clocked over into Boxing Day here.)

    1. It is indeed a depressing thought H. And your country in particular seems to be suffering from some unusual weather patterns. Wishing you and yours a lovely Christmas time and a wonderful 2019.

  2. A lovely thought provoking post Jude it seems almost as though the politicians put it in the too hard basket, all words but no follow through. We did our bit by all the family just buying one present under $5 each then playing a pick a gift from the pile then allowed to “steal” others gift it was a lot of fun.

    1. Like a ‘secret Santa’ which we used to do at school. We’d pick a name from a bowl and then you’d buy that person a present for under £5. I’m afraid I spent a little more on the OH as I saw a couple of books I knew he’d like.
