Mrs. Nesbitt’s ABC-Wednesday
Round 20-C

My 127th entry – bijdrage
Started-Gestart: 28-08-2014 : 15-G


Hello and good morning, -afternoon, -evening, dear people who all participate is this wonderful photo-meme, which is a joy to me, week after week, after week. I’m always curious to what you come up with!

The challenging letter of this week is the C
And I’ve chosen the word Change

In 24 weeks we have to go through a CHANGE
at least, specifically the people who participate in ABC-Wednesday.

The biggest CHANGE ofcourse, is the url, which will CHANGE from this into this.

A smaller CHANGE but still a CHANGE will be the composition of the team. The person who will take the helm will CHANGE from him to her.  The “leader’s” secondant will CHANGE from her to her.  Other teammembers, who also are very important to keep the ABC-ball rolling will CHANGE somewhat to. Some of the ‘old’ teammembers will stay on, yeeeeyyyy, and some will not, new teammembers are added and are also very welcome. How that CHANGE will take place can be watched here.

I am very very pleased, not only to be able to take over, but more so that some people stay on the team and that I could welcome 3 new teammembers already, I am very gratefull for that!

What will CHANGE also?
On this moment… not that much other then what I mentioned above.
Many others things won’t CHANGE, one of them being (I HOPE !!) your participation!

A thing I would like to see a CHANGE in though is the number of participants who are on the birthday-calendar. So please tell me your birthday (the year is not obligatory) and give me and everyone else who likes to, the chance to congratulate you on one of the important days in your life.

My last line today about CHANGE in this blogpost will be a question:
Do you have anything that YOU would like to CHANGE where ABC-Wednesday is concerned?

I so much would like to read your suggestions and ideas because together we are ABC-Wednesday. Together we can make it even more beautiful. Together we can do it. I can’t do it on my own. I need you, all of you, everyone of you, to stand beside me with this wonderful meme!

Have a nice ABC-Wednesday-day / – week ~

      Just that one thing? I don’t believe you ;-) !

      Humans can go through major changes too ;;;;;)))))

        1. Melody schreef:

          there is still time enough to grow up, so no need for hurry ;-)

                    ik ben nog 66 jaar jong
                    en dat je nog twijfels hebt na zovele jaren , is toch logisch
                    ja de bomen die ik trof , zijn de mooiste , nu nog elke dag

                      wat heerlijk voor je, net in je 2e jeugd begonnen dus nu kan het genieten alleen maar vermeerderd worden, go go go you can do it ;-)

                      twijfels horen erbij, maakt het allemaal net iets interessanter en uitdagender en daar hou ik wel van.

    I am changing to thinking more about myself – my likes, wishes, dreams – than what others want or think. There is a time for everything, including being selfish in a good way. And I hope another change is that I will be able to travel to somewhere every year instead of every 5 or 10 years. I will sacrifice other things in order to do this.

      good for you!!!

      2016 was somewhat of a turning point for me …. always doing everything for others except myself, I now do it the other way around. I still am ready and willing to do something for others but not at all costs of myself.

      I wish you with my whole heart the best, that all your wishes may come true, its not a bad thing to place yourself on the first spot!! Keep up the good work ;-)

        Good thing Leslie,
        I would love you to travel in Europe and especially
        to the parts of Austria and Italy that I recently wrote
        about .
        There are so many colouful photo opportunties,
        would be totally in your seventh heaven,
        Best wishes,
        ABCW team.

        1. Melody schreef:

          I indeed would love to travel more and be in that seventh heaven with my camera ;-)

    CHANGE is difficult for me,
    I know it’s important and the only way that growth will happen.
    I haven’t decided if I will continue yet or not.
    10 years of doing this has been a very long time for me.
    We will see….
    One week at a time.

    1. Melody schreef:

      I can imagine Photowannabe, i’ve struggled with for a long periode of time also…. thankfully I can deal with it growingly better

      Never mind, all in due time…. I’d love to welcome you ofcourse, but only If you have fun with participating, that is the most important.

  4. Rajesh schreef:

    The picture representing the Change is awesome.

    1. Melody schreef:

      I agree Rajesh, fascinating to look at it, isn’t it?

  5. Hildred Finch schreef:

    What a fitting choice for the letter C, Melody, and how much we appreciate that you are participating (leading) the changes that are coming to ABC Wednesday.

    1. Melody schreef:

    I have never seen a butterfly chrysalis in the wild, only in a zoo. It’s so amazing how they go through the stages of change.
    Thanks for taking on the responsibility for ABC Wednesday, Melody!

    1. Melody schreef:

      Me too ;-)

      Thank you for you sweet comment, you can rely on me trying to do the best I possibly can, thankfully I do not have to do it all by myself but can I count of the support of the people who will join me in the team.

    Change is a must.Have a nice day.

    1. Melody schreef:

      sometimes indeed it is…. thank you, likewise.

  11. PhenoMenon, ABC Wednesday schreef:

    Change for the sake of changing is a waste of time in my opinion. If it makes sense to discard the old and accept the new then so be it. Cool snaps

    PhenoMenon, ABC Wednesday

    1. Melody schreef:

      Indeed it is PenoMenon, I agree.

      Here in The Netherlands we have a saying “wat goed is moet je goed laten”
      which means something like “what is good, you should keep good” … something that is good as it is should not be altered.

      Regarding the change of ABC…. the things that will change are due logically but as far as ‘not necessary’ I don’t want to change anything else just jet, maybe sometime in the future, we’ll have to see what comes up… or not ;-)

      Dank je wel meis… als in iets snel verandering te zien is is het wel bij hoe een vlinder ontstaat of niet dan?

      Dank je wel, ga mijn best doen ;-) jij ook.

    1. Melody schreef:

  21. islandrambles schreef:

    Thanks so much for hosting and helping at ABC. I am so happy it will continue. Even if we are at blogspots or blogger we can still continue to join the ABC team at WordPress. Blogger is always going through changes and blogging changes all the time. So I am happy that ABC will just still be there as I love it so much. It has been a long time that I have been joining.

    1. Melody schreef:

      You are welcome… we will do our best to keep it rolling.

      Things can happen…. but you are back and thats whats counting ;-)

  22. Freda Mans schreef:

    Amazing captures of life!

    1. Melody schreef:

      indeed Freda, fascinating isnt’it?
      My favorite zoo has lots of displays like this

  23. ANITA SABAT schreef:

    Change is inevitable.
    Great portrayal of the metamorphosis of caterpillar to butterfly :)

    1. Melody schreef:

      indeed it is, although its not always fun…

      thank you Anita…. i think that that is one of the most fascinating things to see in the animalworld.

  24. Joyce Hughes schreef:

    Nice to grow wings.

    1. Melody schreef:

      Yes indeed, their whole transformation is gorgeous to watch…. although that mostly takes up more time then their lifetime as a butterfly

  25. Chubskulit Rose schreef:

    I would love to see this change in person and not just on TV. I haven’t yet but hopefully someday, I could. Bday is the 10th of June.

    1. Melody schreef:

      I can imagine Rose , its is far more fascinating then I can put into words… I am very glad that I can watch it in my favorite zoo whenever I want to.
      I hope for you you will soon!

      I will put your bday in the calendar, thank you for sharing it.

    What a lovely photo for the letter C – Change.

    Lots of changes for the blog in the future too. I’ve just posted to this blog three times now and am enjoying the experience.

    The only concern I have with changing to wordpress is that I hope that I will be able to link up to the blog. I use blogspot for my blog and I have noticed that wordpress blogs aren’t set up to allow blogspot to comment and some do allow this to happen. The ones where I am able to comment have a little icon of sorts to the left of the comment box. In the comment box I write a comment and copy and paste my blog url. WordPress that uses a linky tool also works just fine for me to link my blog and then go back a screen to click to read the other posts that have been linked.

    1. Melody schreef:

      HI Pat, thank you.

      I understand your concern but it all is a consequence of how the specific blogowner has put in his wished concerning comments. In most cases you can ignore those icons…. all you have to fill in is your name, your url and your emailadress.

      The linkyscript will be the same which on the other ABCblog is used now…. the only difference there is that its my linky in stead of Mrs.Nesbits

      If you encounter problems or do have questions about wordpress, don’t hesitate and ask me ;-)
