Dear Tom,
Why was last week’s Letters post a version and not an edition? Is it because it was condensed? Or was it because it was a different version entirely? A different incarnation, so to speak. I’m also wondering… could this possibly be a clue?

Dear Blogland,
Apologies for last week’s EDITION being rather shorter than usual, but that was due to a lack of time. There’s slightly more of it this week, time that is, so this post is more like the previous editions.

Dear Weather,
Thank you for being so changeable this week. On one of the days, I had to go out dressed for Winter, strip suddenly to dry off as the Summer suddenly made an excruciatingly hot appearance, and then we had a burst of Spring showers, which meant I had to get dry once again, being caught in your torrential downpour. I don’t mind weather, I really don’t. I don’t mind extreme weather, but changing to extremes like this is a little too much, don’t you think? Maybe you should reverse your polarity flow or something. Could you please try to stick to one season per day in future? Thank you.

Dear Folk Affected By The Adverse Weather Conditions,
I make light of the weather conditions as it is the best way I can handle it, but I know some are affected more seriously by the weather, and my thoughts are with you.

Dear Internet Archive,
I look forward to browsing your library. I’ve had a quick look and can see that you have many different categories to search – the text from old books is particularly of interest to me. I’ve had a look at your Wayback Machine,  just to see if you had any copies of my blog from when I first started in 2010… I was disappointed to see that you hadn’t, but it was fun to see the site from 2016. Also, I have to mention a similar site I enjoy visiting from time to time, should I need to look up anything mythological or from folklore… The Internet Sacred Texts Archive. A vast realm of information, and therefore answers to some of my many questions, at my fingertips. Thank you. Thank you.

Dear World Watercolour Month,
You’re certainly whizzing by, aren’t you? Only ten more days to go, and then it’s over for another year. And what fun you are as well!

Dear Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch,
How is it that I have heard of you for what seems like forever, live extremely close to you, yet have never, ever visited you? Not even to take a quick photo of your town sign. I must set about putting this right. (And see if I can fit your whole sign onto my mobile camera’s screen!)

Dear Ae,
I know that I have never heard of you before, and don’t live as close to you as I do Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, but I feel compelled now to visit you also. From one extreme to the other… good photos to have side by side.

Dear Weekend,
Not long until you are here again. I have a question for you: will you pass by a little more slowly this week, last week I could see that you were trying, but in the end you were over pretty much soon after you began. Or so it seemed. Mind you, they do say time is relative, so maybe I should do something to slow you down, rather than me expecting you just to do it. I shall have to think about that one.

Dear Blogland,
How are your guesses coming along for my recent poortrait? I’ve been scattering clues for what seems like years now, hither and thither. I shall be checking in on all of your replies just before I post the reveal post. I wonder if any of you have got it right this time? Time will tell…

And to finish… Dear All,
Don’t be like me and worry over things such as time. What’s the point, really? It passes regardless of what we do… even when we’re bored and wished it would speed up, it is still the same time, passing at the same time. Just live in the moment, and enjoy it. I was going to say every second of it, but I’ll refrain. Just enjoy the NOW, and allow time to do its own thing. Night follows day regardless of whether we are stressed out to the max, or as chilled as a… as chilled as a what? We can’t have a questions edition without ending on a question now, can we???

Thank you for reading!

P.S.: Here’s a quick photo of this year’s #WorldWatercolorMonth poortrait:

Well, just because it is easier seeing it here than it is clicking back to the original post. However, clicking here will take you there, should you feel the need. Do you know who it is? Time is running out for this particular question…

  2. Great letters again. I’m intrigued by the internet archive – I think I’ll be popping along there for a browse just as soon as I have some time. I think Weather just likes to keep us on our toes – just when we think we know what’s happening it mixes things up a bit.
