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. I love the photo – those globes are so cool!

    You expressed a great Christmas Wish. There is certainly too much excess of everything at this time of year – well, excess of everything except the things that really matter in life like love, kindness, respect … we can never have too much of that ❤️

    Merry Christmas, Jude! Hope your holidays and the new year are filled with all the things that really matter 💕

  2. Beauty and thoughtful words this Christmas Eve, thank you Jude. We are hoping to follow as much of your advice as we can 🤶

    Here’s to a peaceful and dry Christmas for you xxx

  3. “remember the best things in life are free. A smile, a kind word, a hug.” – Thanks for this wonderful sentiment! 🙂
    A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you,

  4. I’m lucky to believe that the greatest delicacy is good bread, the greatest luxury a pie, yet it is still hard to resist the temptation to buy things people might just want because we all think each other expects it. I’m still learning to tread the line between the various guilts we feel when we don’t fully enter into the commercial spirit of Christmas, so it’s good to have these ideals restated so clearly.

  5. Wise words. I’ve managed to recycle cardboard boxes and tins as Xmas packaging, and since most of it’s for the boy-child who’ll leave it behind, I’ll be using it again in a couple of months for his birthday.
    Wishing you a peaceful and contented Christmas Jude.
