Modern

each other’s heart throb

hearts throbbing after leaping

over obstacles

My entry for our Photo Challenge this week: MODERN

It’s a bit of a cheat really as I didn’t take the photo – I was the jet-lagged Granny at home with the children so that my daughter and her husband could enter a cross-country Rocket Run. I knew it was going to be a big ask for me to have their three balls of energy just two days after I got back from my trip to the Caribbean, my energy was on the floor, but I teamed up with my son and his boys and together we had a good day – AND this picture makes it all so very worthwhile. I’m so glad they were happy for me to share it with you – it makes me smile every time I look at it.

The picture shows just what good friends they are, they went round the 8k course together helping each other over the obstacles and having fun. They have been married for 10 years – my marriage was falling apart after 10 years, to see my daughter so happy …. well, that’s all we want for our kids isn’t it.

(Oh, and it ticked off one of my daughter’s 17 for 2017 – go A!)

Why MODERN?

When I was in my 30s nobody I knew ran for pleasure and/or to keep fit – now all my children and their partners and lots of their friends seem to do quite a bit of running. Jobs are not so physically active it seems to be one of the modern ways to keep fit and meet socially.

Ok, a bit tenuous maybe, but any excuse to squeeze this photo into a blog post!

Including a stab at Ron’s Haiku Challenge prompts: LEAP and THROB

Have a go, it’s fun. Pop across to Ron’s and see all the other great entries, it is a great supportive Haiku community.

Please leave links to your MODERN photos in the comments so that I can include it in the Monthly Round- Up. Cathy and I always look forward to seeing your take on each subject.

Next week’s subject (posted from next Tuesday onwards) is BIRD
