Ah, Yes, the Talk, Talk, Talk...

Perhaps a visual medium is the best way to communicate?
There are people chattering away on radio and television as I write.

"Recession, Recession, Recession" they wail.

What, in the name of all that is beautiful are we supposed to do?


Christmas shopping in Dublin (should we do it in the suburbs or head into town?)
has become a political subject.

Why were the festive lights lit so early in November, when we should be saving energy?

There are so many questions that:

1. I could never have imagined asking in the first place


2. Probably have no answer in any case

that it is just as well to stick with photos from now on.

Thank you, Granny J, for keeping me on the straight and narrow...

Oh, dear -- it was a suggestion, not a ukase! There certainly are times for words, but when the need is for words to fill a given amount of space or a specific quantity of air time, then they really are spun out of control.

Don't worry.

I was being a bit "ironique".

Having spent much of my adult life "learning to use words" I find images easier to present.

Thanks for inspiring a post that was worth writing.
