Repeating Ourselves

Me and my Grandchildren. Repeating ourselves?

My daughter did this at the same age

Hanne Tree-Hugging in 2010

Same old Golden Trees every Spring

Visiting Naramata every Spring ( Drawing )
It is maybe common that we humans have to repeat ourselves. After all, most folk have poor memories, but in another way, life is cyclical because of the seasons. We repeat our news, as with anniversaries of disasters for instance, and week-ends, with soccer matches and sepia photos for example. But I've just realized that we are also taking the same walks, and the same photos, on or about the same day each year. Here is an example in the photo of Hanne doing a tree-hugging act from 2010!
 I believe Jenny Freckles will agree she does about the same? Yesterday, the American Robin started singing, on the same day in March as usual. Even wild life repeats as well!

An interesting observation! I'll need to pay attention to my own repeat-patterns of behaviour.

I have seen several pictures of you hugging or touching trees. You must like them.

Greetings,

Like Desiree, I will be starting to pay attention to my own actions to see how much I repeat, how often.

Yes we like trees; we also need them for support, especially when taking photos!

Yes, the older I get the more I value the rhythm of repetition. It anchors me.
