There Is No New Thing Under The Sun ~ Sky Sunday

A sunny Sunday from morning to evening, with the sun shining bright enough to make my visit with my mother and all my siblings to my father’s grave feel hot. This is our regular visit every Easter and Christmas to my father’s grave at the Kalibata National Heroes Cemetery.

I know this is not a new story for you, but this family activity in Easter week has given me the opportunity to write a few other themes to share here. One of them is for Sky Sunday.

I took the picture with the cellphone without aiming but instead turned the camera up and shot it. I did it because the condition was too bright so I couldn’t see any image on the screen. To be sure, I need a picture of the sky, the same sky with your sky, even though it won’t be the same face in different seconds and in different places. After all, whatever the outcome, the sky is the sky, the face that is always different from the same thing. Times in human civilization are always changing, renewed, affecting human life in every age, which will then be recorded as history. But is there really something new on earth? Especially if we quote a phrase adapted from the Book of Ecclesiastes, which the entire passage reads, “The thing that has been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. “

  • Do you have an opinion about that phrase compared to the “reality” of your life?

    • Yes
    • No

What do you think?

  1. Sometimes I notice certain repetitions but that’s when I start looking for different pattern or doing things differently. If I take too long when I’m meant to change then life does it for me.
    Mostly I have to agree, there is nothing new under the sun simply because a new discovery to one is an old experience to another.

  2. I heard that saying before, I didn’t know where it came from. πŸ˜ƒ
    It’s true, if we look at the big picture, nothing is really new. The sun rises and falls, so do people. Seasons come and go, so do civilizations. Only details can make a difference. πŸ™‚
