A Modest Cove #polaroidspast

Modesty Ablaze – Rangiputa Cove – 1981

I’ve always enjoyed being at one with nature, even in 1981 . . . although I was obviously a little more “modest” way back then!!!

Quiet strolls along a beach, feeling the sand between my toes, the rippling of waves at the water’s edge and, of course, a cooling breeze on my . . . skin!!!

So when I learnt that “Nature” was this week’s theme at Marie’s
Wicked Wednesday, I just couldn’t resist dipping back into my
#polaroidspast nature-trails collection.

And I’m sure you will find many more nature-trails and tales from tapping

Modestly Lounging #sinfulsunday

Modesty Ablaze Lounging – 1982

This week’s theme on this Sinful Sunday is “Minimalist – a moment in time, or an artistic perspective, with simplicity and grace”.

Well, I’m not sure about the “grace” . . . and I clearly hadn’t yet discovered waxing . . . but this photo from my #polaroidspast collection, brings back lovely memories from a moment in time in 1982.

For more moments in time, and probably far more artistic perspectives this Sinful Sunday, just kiss the lips below!

Modest Rainforest #sinfulsunday

Modesty Ablaze Rainforest – 2016

We were caught in a torrential downpour during our Sunday stroll this morning. But there’s something quite comforting about hearing the sound of the rain beating on the leaves of the forest canopy overhead . . . and feeling
the droplets on ones bare skin.

It reminded me of a similar stroll, below, in the rainforest in 1982 . . . from
our #polaroidspast albums.

Brushing Back The Years #sinfulsunday

Sometimes I whisper to the mirror in the morning . . . “I wish I could brush back the years . . . back to 1982”.

Modesty Ablaze – 1982

But then I remember all of the fun, all of the laughter . . . and all of the love
. . . over the years inbetween.

Modesty Ablaze – 2016

And I know I’m better now . . . than then . . . a better person, more rounded
(and I don’t just mean my tummy)!!!

So whilst it’s fun attempting to re-shoot one of my #polaroidspast . . . I wouldn’t change any of those experiences, and memories at all . . . in fact
I’m hoping for many, many more!!!

And as this week’s theme at Sinful Sunday is to re-shoot photos from
one’s past, I’m sure you will find many more sinful memories from clicking
on the lips below!

Modestly Black & White #sinfulsunday

Modesty Ablaze – 1988

On reading Hyacinth’s wonderfully strong words, just this Friday, on recent events surrounding something so natural, and so important as one’s personal freedom of choice, I was left wishing once again . . .

Why things can’t be simpler? Why can’t things be more straightforward . . . why can’t things be more . . . black and white!!!

Why can’t we just all let each other be who we choose to be ? . . . To live our lives how WE want to live them ? . . . AND to let others live theirs the way THEY want to live them???

Because . . . I’m sure the world would be a much nicer place for ALL of us !!!

Anyway, for hopefully more enjoyable and smiley thoughts than my own this Sunday, please tap the lips below!

Change 1982 – 2016 #sinfulsunday

SinfulBed1982

Modesty Ablaze – Looking Ahead 1982

Change – isn’t it just the ONE thing that none of us can really ever control?

Of course the things we do, the steps we take, the decisions we make . . . are all things that can shape our journey, but . . . time itself is really something that we can never fully control. It shapes and influences . . . and changes, all of us . . . usually in ways we could never have imagined.

And very often . . . as I look back through the years . . . I think that perhaps that is the way that life should really be. That some things will always, forever be, outside of our own control . . . and that possibly, in the end, our lives will be
all the better for it!

I know, from looking back to one of Hubby’s first #polaroidspast of me
. . . in 1982 . . . that I could never have imagined our adventures over the
34 years to come!!!

Modesty Ablaze – Looking Back 2016

But . . . there are sure to be lot more changes and reflections to discover at this week’s Sinful Sunday from kissing the lips below!

And, despite being something that we can never stop, change is something I’m sure that we all like to look back on occasionally. Sometimes with affection, sometimes not . . . but almost always I’m sure, with lots of giggles and gasps!!!

But I always say  – “Try to Be Proud of Who You Were . . . and
Who You Have Become!”

A Modest Identity #wickedwednesday

SultryBlue89

Modesty Ablaze – Sultry in 1989

I suppose our “Identity” . . . in the sense of who we think we are, or how we want others to perceive us . . . changes over time, in much the same way as our appearance does.

I know that from my own point-of-view, I now worry far less about others perception of me, than I used to. Accepting who we are, not trying to be the sort of person whom we know we are not, is all part of maturing and feeling comfortable in one’s self. And having that self-confidence, in just being ourselves, shapes how we interact with others around us and how, ultimately, they accept us . . . or otherwise!

So, as I say, I worry far less about those things than I probably did in my younger days. And looking at this picture from my #polaroidspast in 1989 makes me giggle now. Just who was I trying to be? A Sultry Siren ??? LOL!!! . . . or perhaps I was just sulking and getting annoyed at Hubby seeming to take forever to actually set-up his camera and “just click-the-button!” (Some things never change, he’s still the same!!!)

Anyway, there will be lots more thoughts on “Identity” to discover in this week’s theme at Wicked Wednesday from clicking-the-button below!

Mirrored Past #sinfulsunday

HairBrush83

Modesty Ablaze – #polaroidspast – 1983

I’ve never really liked mirrors . . . because, very often, I don’t really like
what I see looking back at me.

I suppose it’s because one always thinks that it is the mirror that reflects everything about who we are.

But then I’ll remember which one of us is really in control . . . so I’ll shake
my finger in defiance and say “there will always be more to me than you
can ever see!!!”

 Of course, I probably wasn’t thinking that as I stood brushing my hair in my #polaroidspast picture from 1983 . . . but as Mirrors is this week’s theme at Sinful Sunday there is sure to be lots more reflections-shared from
brushing the lips below!

A Modest Timeline #wickedwednesday

None of us think of ever growing old do we? We will always be eternal, always be young . . . old is always the next generation on. Something we are not, something we never want to be.

Modesty Ablaze 1982

Modesty Ablaze – March 1982

Looking back through the years, I suppose we just keep shifting our own timeline . . . decade by decade . . . or, at least, I do !!!

So, jottings from my diaires . . . a Modesty Ablaze timeline:

From my Seventy-Teenies:
Rebelling from Catholic school tie and gymslips by day, to punk rocker by night down in deepest darkest Soho. I will never be old. Meet a boy with strange accent . . . A little older? Just a little. But . . . he works in the bar at the Marquee club in Wardour Street. Free tickets, free drinks at the bar! He likes me! The Clash, Siouxsie, The Damned, The Jam . . . wild times, wild nights. I’ll never grow old!

To my Eighty-Twenties:
I’ll never grow old. Leaving school. New job. Same boy, think he likes me. Summer holidays, island hopping Greek Islands. Different job. Same boy, think I like him. Flying to the bottom half of the world. I’ll never grow old! Returning home. Leaving home. Sinful living, same boy, we like each other. I’m never growing old, in fact I’m feeling younger.

And my Eighty-MidTwenties (almost):
Same boy. He loves me, I love him. White Wedding. Route 66, Everglades, Sunsets over Key West. I’ll never grow old! In fact, I’m feeling younger.

To my Ninety-Twenties:
New home. Same boy. Children. Love them. Suddenly . . . I’m getting older.

And my Two Thousand Thirties:
School run mornings. Back to work. Office affair. Oh God, what’s happening? I’m a wife, a mother, I should be being responsible, I’m not a youngster anymore. What to do? Must stop, can’t stop. Come clean to same boy. He says he knows already! He understands, he loves me. He thinks it’s fun. He doesn’t mind. I love him. I’m never growing old, in fact I’m feeling younger.

Oh suddenly it’s Two Thousand Forties:
Same boy. New job. New affair(s). Oh God. Can’t stop. Never growing old, in fact feeling younger.

And my Two Thousand Mid-Forties:
Same boy. Swinging fun, such fun. Three-somes, Four-somes, More-somes.
Oh God. Can’t stop. Never growing old, in fact feeling even younger.

To my Two Thousand Fifties:
Same boy. More fun, such fun. FemDom, Mistressing, Crops & Canes. Can’t stop. Won’t stop. Too much fun to stop.
I can’t possibly be getting old, in fact I’m feeling younger, ever younger!

Modesty Ablaze – March 2016

So . . . I’ve changed my socks since 1982 . . . changed my knickers too (not that I wear them as often now as I did then!) But I never want to change my philosophy . . . You are only ever as old as you feel! You can’t change Time . . . so use Time . . . Play Time . . . Feel young . . . be young . . . stay young . . . Forever young!!!

This week’s theme at Wicked Wednesday is on Growing Older . . .  and if you tap the magic circle below, you are sure to find much more on time ticking by!

Modest Return Visits #polaroidspast

RiverBed82

Mangamuka River Bed 1982

Please accept my apologies that I haven’t been indulging in, or visiting, as many of my Sinful and Wicked posts of late.

I’ve actually been indulging in, and revisiting, lots of memories and locations from my holidays . . . and #polaroidspast . . . in the Southern Hemisphere over the past three weeks. The photo above is from 1982 and yesterday (below) I was standing in the same riverbed!

RiverBedJan16

Mangamuka River Bed 2016

Lots, and lots, of water has flowed down that river, in the 34 years since!!!

I truly hope I can revisit . . . and stand in the same spot in another 34 years time
. . . perhaps having my picture taken again to add to my #polaroidspast albums and my Polaroids Past slide-show !!! 

Modesty Ablaze in Polaroids Past

Oh and P.S. – I get lots of messages from people who say they would love to join-in with #polaroidspast but don’t have any old “polaroids”. But the theme is actually about celebrating how you have become who you are now! Just remembering those wonderful . . . fun . . . and perhaps inspirational moments, from even your recent past, that have brought you to the
here and now.
So Come-on . . . Dare to Bare . . .
Be Proud of Who You have Become!
