In defiance of Autumn. Scarred and bruised, yet unabashedly beautiful. Proudly permeating into the transitional season... Sharing its fragrance and vivid color as long as it can. An old rose holding on to its glory. Knowing that soon a dormancy will rise up through the roots, in order to endure the bleakness and bitter cold of Winter... and take it from the stems. Only to recharge and re-emerge in Spring, with fresh, young blooms... Eager for the warmth of the sun to unlock its fragrance, to open its petals, revealing all the purity of its inner layers. Continuing the cycle. All the while, trusting the process, embracing the changes, and loving the opportunity of existence, feeling grateful for its place in all of this... #flower#rose#petals#autumn#transition#defiance#fragrance#red#scarred#beautiful

Walk home down Lothian Road:
WOMAN AND CHILD
Metal plaque reads:
“Erected by The City of Edinburgh District Council.
To honour all those killed or imprisoned for their stand against apartheid.
Unveiled 22 July 1986 by Suganya Chetty.
Sculpted by Ann Davidson.
‘VICTORY IS CERTAIN’”
Standing tall and proud, this sculpture acts as both a symbol of defiance against oppression and solidarity for the victims of Apartheid. ‘Woman and Child’ is positioned at the corner of Festival Square and adjacent to Lothian Road, a busy main road in central Edinburgh.
Both figures are dressed in rags, quite possibly these could be the only clothes they have. The child cowers afraid and barefoot behind the lady, who we can only assume to be represented as the child’s mother, protecting her child. The lady, despite showing signs of weariness, stands tall. She displays resilience, demonstrating the silent and peaceful protest she continues against the suffering those in her situation have had to endure. You can even see corrugated metal behind them, representing the terrible slums many victims of a Apartheid had to live in.
When you admire the sculpture, you see that many children enjoy standing upon the short stone platform and placing their hands on the child’s head. They are unaware of the suffering young children like this have had to go through. Worry not, it further highlights what a blessing it has been that many of the world’s children today are growing up into societies that have long ago expunged the evils of Apartheid.
