Day 3012: Time and tide

A long time ago, a wise man said this:

I thought of that quote yesterday when I wanted to inspect some new graffiti on a tower structure near where we live, but was stymied by high tide. While time and tide wait for no man, this woman waited for the time where she could explore and find what she was looking for.

No need to wait for me to share my images from yesterday, including the ones I snapped during high tide.

I thought I had spotted a heart on that tower and waited until tide and time allowed me to explore.

Time (and perhaps man) has changed a “TRUMP” and added a big heart to that tower.

Here are the other images I captured during the time of lower tide:

I don’t know what the tide was like during the times I captured the rest of these images because I was indoors at the time.

Time and tide wait for no man and Harley can’t wait for his breakfast.

Here‘s Basia with “Time and Tide.”

Time and tide wait for no man but I wait patiently for your comments.

Now it’s time for me to thank all who help me create these daily posts, including YOU.

Day 1767: Unlawful

What does “unlawful” mean to you?

Here‘s what it means to Merriam-Webster:

Definition of unlawful

1 :not lawful :illegal
2 :not morally right or conventional
— unlawfully \ˌən-ˈlȯ-f(ə-)lē\ adverb
— unlawfulness  \ˌən-ˈlȯ-fəl-nəs\ noun

First Known Use: 14th century

So now we know that unlawful means “not lawful.” Is that helpful or not helpful?

Also, is morally right really equivalent to conventional? Personally, I strive to be morally right but rarely strive to be conventional.

I also wonder what “unlawful” meant in the 14th century and how the meaning has changed over time.

These days, when I read the news (which is still lawful, as far as I know), I see many stories about people in power being unlawful, which is awful (“unlawful” minus the first three letters).

Is this photo unlawful, lawful, or awful?

What about this one?

“MKM” are the initials of my boyfriend Michael.  If I had written that on a wall, would that have been unlawful? How about taking a picture of it, like I did yesterday?

Here‘s Unlawful singing “You’re Not Alone.”*

I’m glad it’s not unlawful to sing or say “You’re Not Alone,” because that’s a very important message of group therapy (which I practice lawfully in Boston).

Here and now, it’s not unlawful to

  • blog,
  • leave comments, and
  • express gratitude to all who helped me create this”unlawful” post and to you — of course! — for lawfully reading it.
