Youth and Joy (This week's Photo Hunt themes)
Youth really is wasted on the young. When I was of a youthful age myself, I of course would never have thought that -- and this especially in those joy-filled years when I was attending college with, among others, a friend named Joy (whom I wrote about the last time joy was a Photo Hunt theme!).
So I do realize that it's a sign of my having aged quite a bit -- and at times into a curmudgeon -- that I find myself having thought that more than once in recent months; this especially when confronted by brash younger folks whose confidence far exceed their actual abilities in a work capacity!
Therefore, I do thank Sandi and Gattina for having chosen Photo Hunt themes this week that, when combined, inspire me to more positively consider that youthful folks are capable of acts that can bring people joy.
And I figure I can't have become a complete curmudgeon just yet since that I did get some joy myself from re-viewing the photos I took of the joyous, festive show that was put on for the community -- by a combination of youth and older folk -- in Shau Kei Wan in honor of the Taoist deity Tam Kung's birthday a few years back along with a smaller festive occasion I just happened to come across while visiting Cheung Chau -- the island home of one of Hong Kong's major festive celebrations -- one day! ;b
