It’s Friday again and time for Alphabet Blogging with Mum

Right then – this week the letter is R
And what I discovered is that:-
The letter R is the only letter in the modern Latin alphabet  (which is the one we use) in which the uppercase has a closed section and the lowercase does not.
Also that:-
The letter R is sometimes referred to as the littera canina (canine letter). This phrase has Latin origins: the Latin R was trilled to sound like a growling dog

Anyway for me the letter R stands for …….. Round

~ ~ Round benches Canada Place Vancouver ~ ~

~ ~ Round the table Chinese style ~ ~

And R stands for ………………..Reflections

Right on my doorstep

~ ~ Runner duck and friends anticipating ~ ~

~ ~ Runner ducks and friends leaving disappointed ~ ~

 And far far away

~ ~ Reflection of glacier at waters edge ~ ~

So then I thought of………. Real and Reflecting

 There is a place for Real Life right on my doorstep – messy or otherwise

and there are refreshing and relaxing places for Reflecting on life
