028/2011 green, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

My theme for this weekend will be colours, and escaping dreary winter with them. For a short moment in the late afternoon, the sun shone through our window, making our houseplants glisten in its light.

In reality this poor plant is shedding most of its leaves, as it struggles to survive in the dry, electically heated house in winter. However, looking at this close-up effectively distracts the senses, and gives a vibrant, spring-like impression, filled with the promise of life.

    It’s true that with each difficult Winter (for you), and with each hardship, what makes it bearable is ‘the promise of life’ or the hope of improved circumstances. I’m hoping you have warmer, sunnier days ahead. As we head back to school, the weather here in Melbourne typically turns up its heat so that we can all fry and wilt in the first month. One of our air conditioners broke down and we have to wait until Wednesday to have it installed. The promise of cool!

    Starting school in very hot weather must be exhausting, air conditioning or not! Sometimes it takes imagination and creativity to stay optimistic and remember the promises, but they keep us going! I am really beginning to see the recurring, seasonal themes and feelings during this second daily photo year.
