Story Challenge: Letter “N”

Hi Bloggers! Do you have to share a story or a short reflection tagged with the letter “N”? For example I’ve written about New York or Novosibirsk, nuclear risks or North Korea, Neuschwanstein castle or Nietzsche, NYPD or nonsense, notebooks and numbers, naps of my cat, nude portraits or neoliberalism, Norway or Napoli, newspapers or nightmares etc. – I’m sure you’ll find an own story or a short reflection tagged with “N”! Feel free to add in the comments the link to your personal interpretation of the letter “N”!!!

frizz-comment: take the photo (shot by my wife Barbara) as a metaphor for my diary words: “there’s a shade behind all lights …”
comments by several readers at wordpress and flickr:
1 – Melanie: The face of this season is joyous, but behind the facade can be a totally different theme…
2 – maistora / Vladimir Dimitroff: Very interesting composition (on the thumbnail it was some strange half-wheel) – well spotted and captured!
3 – george-b: It wil fill the space, next to “There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light get’s in” (Leonard Cohen- Anthem)…. Indeed the sadness behind the joy….Some cannot balance it, the joy around them is too appeasing – oppressing; The shade before the everlasting darkness.
4 – thirdhandart: There is a thinly veiled curtain between one person’s joy and another’s sorrow.
5 – TheWomanAtTheWell: I feel like I’ve been on a train going through a long dark tunnel. Thanks for shinning your light for me so I know there’s and end!
6 – semprevento: I think I felt a great sadness. The days go by and leave both of us …. something that is not cleared.
7 – granbee / Rose: Thanks so much for including this shot of the ever-revolving lighted “rides” high above the dark gloomy building. A very good reminder after reading the train ride essay. Every time I see a new NASA telephoto of a “new” black hole, I am reminded that dark and light always accompany each other in the universe, both outside and inside ourselves.
frizz-reply: the other part of the wheel is digging through the hell …

  2. Hi there Frizz, this photo looks mighty familiar. I think you’ve shared it previously and asked about it before, if I’m not mistaken. I love the layers here and how it can be construed as a metaphor for both the light and dark within our beings – very complex indeed.

    My contribution this week is our featured photographer’s N photos with the theme “Nautical.” Here’s the link:


    • thank you, Myra, for the wonderful NAUTICAL
      gallery of BOATs – and the quotation:
      “We may have all come on different ships,
      but we’re in the same boat now.”

      – Martin Luther King, Jr.

    • beste Roos / maxidiehexi,
      we have seen this nude Manneken Pis in Brussels too – and have been very amused by the versions in the shop windows nearby: many made of chocolate – even larger sized than original!
