This is a random shopping list which my daughter inadvertently took back to England after a brief visit home to Australia late last year. She has just found it, all these months later, and used it in her Instagram #100daysof happy post as it gave her a sense of happiness.
How random is that? I somehow don’t think it was worth taking all that way but then I think that if it gave her a feeling of connection to me over on the other side of the world, then yes it was worth it!
As she says:
Finding a random shopping list in mum’s handwriting that weirdly made it back with me from Aus. #missing home
This post is in response to the Weekly Photo Challenge: Letters – click here for more details and to see other posts on the subject. I like the wording of the challenge from The Daily Post and once again I seem to have taken it fairly literally:
For this week’s challenge, share a photo with letters — no matter the alphabet. You can capture a neon sign, a sentence scribbled in an old phone booth, a random letter that’s seemingly out of place, or anything else. As you look through your lens, think about how your image might convey something bigger: a snapshot of how we communicate with one another, even if we don’t speak the same language.
Letters are everywhere and sometimes it is more the connection they create than the actual words they make.
