I Am Glad I Never Cease To Be Amazed.

I sometimes find life boring; my own fault. In the western world it seems nothing is new, and television presents me with millions of images; my minds reaches saturation point and it sometimes seems nothing will ever impress, ever again to any real degree. 3D films, E-books, I-Pods, all very clever no doubt. Technically clever stuff but way beyond my grasp. Yet it is ironically through the power of modern technology I am introduced to the art of a beautiful young lady and I am transfixed as never before. And I am glad that even at seventy plus years I still have the ability to be amazed by the ingenuity, the sheer talent of the human race. How on earth does anyone learn such skill; where on earth does such a unique talent come from. And have you been impressed this year by someone or something that little bit different. Seasonal greetings to you all.

Fantastic talent; thanks for that.

You might be interested in my latest post - reflections - I suspect you met a few cases like it during your time in schools.

Very nice Ken, glad you found it. This is the kind of thing that the internet was invented for - a chance to see some truly amazing things.
Hope you and yours had a good Christmas.

Imagine if we ever stopped being amazed! How dull and boring life would be.

That truly is an amazing talent you found!

After your comments I had to look at the video. It is indeed amazing- such talent. What a gift to be given. I've put it on my own blog and referred back to yours.

Just spent time reading your various posts. Always interesting stuff. How much of your time is taken up by blogging. And have you a journalistic background. I have to limit myself' of any case there is so much to do, so little time left. There are some clever people out there, you are one of them!

Simply breathtaking skill. I wonder if this is something self taught as I haven't come across this art form being taught academically anywhere.

Hi Ken. Just tripped over you at ‘Blogs of Note’. I’m a fifty something prepubescent bloggerer. Never even read-a-blog till last august. Just thought blogging was another of those silly internet ‘fads’ for people who love to type. Didn’t know I was a complete Pillock either. Do now. Love your take on life and especially your natural brand of humour. You’ve scribed much to chuckle about here and plenty more to entertain in the months ahead as I re-visit. As for this video post, I think it’s quite the most astonishing piece of live, individual, artistic skill I have ever witnessed. Makes even the eternal Rolf Harris look third rate. I have often sat and gazed at the talented pavement artists while they work away feverishly with their chalk in southern European cities, until the local police come and move them along. But this ladies skill raises the bar to Himalayan levels. Extraordinary and ultimately quite moving. Perfect post title too. Echoes all our sentiments. I will be sharing this with all the family and friends – maybe they won’t think me a ‘complete-and utter-pillock’. Then maybe not. I’d also like to post it on my ‘Blogette’ with a suitable accreditation to you and yours, if that’s ok. Thanks for sharing this with us and all your amusing musings. Very inspiring stuff. I have much to learn. Be back soon. Promise!
