Chaos

A state of utter confusion or disorder; a total lack of organization or order.

I don’t do chaos.  I avoid it at all costs.  And to be honest I think I just don’t see it – life’s easier that way.

So when I went looking for it, I couldn’t find it.  I only got a couple of shots this week.

I was working at the polytech graduation day and thankfully was not assigned to the areas where excited graduates were creating havoc.  Instead, I was given the task of meeting and greeting and pointing people this way and that and of ushering guests to their seats.   At one stage a graduating grandmother (no, not graduating as a grandmother, silly) when she was told her grandchildren couldn’t go with her in the procession through town, said she wouldn’t go either.  Age sometimes has its advantages and I told her in my more senior grandmotherly voice not to be ridiculous, of course she must go and I would care for the children.    When photos were being taken I took the children to watch for a while.  The photographer is just to the left of the little tree but has only managed to get a few of the grads to line up on those steps.   I'm glad it was his job and not mine - looked far too chaotic for me.

As we were leaving the reception centre I noticed this sign.   You will probably have to share my sense of humour to appreciate how this could lead to chaos (sorry, Ginger, you are probably not wild at all!)

To see what the rest of the FSO team came up with, just pop over here.

  7. Well, being in an art room with 13-year-olds all day I have had to accept chaos as rather normal. When I retire I'm sure I won't miss it too much!

    Oh nooooooooo...wild ginger! That does sound ridiculous, but also very New Zealand. So many invasive species. But ginger?
