I’m possibly the World Champion Procrastinator…so many things I could be doing….I’m putting this link here…so I can find it later… I can’t be bothered to look at it in detail now…I want to look at some cute cat pictures on Facebook…
Doves silhouetted against the evening sky at Sameba (Holy Trinity) Cathedral in Tbilisi.
I had a lot of fun watching the Eurovision Song Contest last night …on TV and the Facebook group “Eurovision Banter and Mischievous Malarkey 2014”
… I thought Netherlands had the best song…but all the politics was very Eurovision….the Netherlands entry
Georgia bizarrely gave 12 points to Armenia (the neighbour we love to hate), 10 points to Austria (the fledgling Gay Pride here last year saw our priests leading a hostile mob against frightened participants) and 8 points to Russia (a country occupying two parts of what the international community recognise as Georgia: namely, South Ossetia and Abkhazia)….go figure…maybe the strange voting was related to Georgia’s failure to qualify for the final…
It is not over until the bearded lady sings.
Lots of people “on the move” in different ways at Tbilisi Central Train Station…
2am border crossing Turkey-Georgia…sleepily walk through customs, get visa stamped at passport control then wait for the minibus on the other side….

Light and dark
A mother takes her child to the swings. The child swings happily. The mother takes a 1 minute video clip. Shares with friends on social media. “Let’s go!”, she says. Child wanting to swing more cries. Mother walks away with crying child, checking all the “likes” on her iPhone, feeling she is one of the best parents in the world.
This photo I took back in March, when the daffodils come out I feel Spring has begun.
