Here is my second interpretation of this week’s Collage theme.
These cards and paper ephemera were on display at Drybridge market, making a “found” collage,
Collage is the theme of this week’s challenge.
Transitions, change and the passing of time:
Any material which is soluble, can be deposited as a colloid or is in suspension, or is capable of being melted, may form a stalactite. Calcium Bicarbonate solution travels through the rock until it reaches an edge and if this is on the roof of a cave it will drip down. Over time a stalactite will form. An average growth rate is 0.13 mm (0.0051 inches) a year, so these speleothems mark a long passing of time.

“Life is but a day;
A fragile dew-drop on its perilous way
From a tree’s summit.” John Keats
This week’s challenge is Transient
Transient: not lasting, enduring, or permanent; transitory.
In the grand scheme not much is permanent.
Spring flowers last a month or so.
the fire may last a few hours
the average lifespan of a butterfly is about one month
a prayer candle lasts maybe an hour
the sandcastle will last until the tide comes in
“The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.” Psalm 90 v 10
So, as John Keating says in Dead Poets Society:
‘Carpe diem. Seize the day, boys. Make your lives extraordinary’
This week’s challenge is Focus
This week’s challenge is Order
On a market stall in Georgia the fruit is presented nicely in an orderly fashion.
Georgia, my adopted country, has a rich religious heritage. Georgia was the second country to adopt Christianity as the official religion, after Armenia. Religion is important for the majority of the population, despite Stalin and the communists attempts to eradicate religious practices in the Soviet years.
