Dear Friday,
You certainly come around fast, don’t you? Not that I’m complaining, as it means the weekend is here once again… and I do love the weekend! Will I be trying something new this weekend or sticking with the same ol’ same old? Let’s just see what happens shall we? But Friday… it is good to see you again!

Dear Raili,
I just had to send you a little letter of Gratitude via the Universe. I’ve thanked you for your Soul Gift through email, and through my blog, so the final stage of thanks has to be through the Universe as well. As we know, the Universe is always listening!

Dear Dark Nights,
Since the clocks went back an hour at the weekend, the dark nights are most certainly drawing in now. Perfect time to grab a little notebook and pen and scribble down ideas. Any idea. Anything that comes to mind. The next great story has to begin somewhere. Let the light shine through the darkness, as it were!

Dear Artistic Side,
I refer you to the previous letter! Scribbling like that may ignite a spark of inspiration in you, and you never know, there may be another watercolour painting on the horizon!

Dear The Weather,
I can see you are teasing us with your chilled evenings. At least the mornings aren’t covered in a layer of frost just yet, but it won’t be long before you get your way. Winter’s birth is just around the corner.

Dear The Word Apoptosis,
What a wonderful sounding word you are, but your meaning of ‘death of cells which occurs as a normal and controlled part of an organism’s growth’ sounds slightly gruesome. That said, you allow new cells to grow, rebirth, so I think you are a word of celebration!

Dear Hallowe’en,
So, you came and went in a flash once again, didn’t you? At least this blog has returned somewhat back to normal (whatever that is around these here parts!) Thinking about it though, it’s a good thing we aren’t permanently stuck in that Hallowe’en state. You’re fun for the day / week / month, but we must return to normal at some point. Until next year!

Dear Backache,
It’s such a relief that you have left me again. I know you only ached upon standing, but your arrival was at a slightly inconvenient time, I have to say. Still, if you hadn’t called by, I wouldn’t be feeling as good as I do now, and would probably be taking things for granted. So in an odd way, thank you for your visit.

Dear Sweet And Sour Sauce With Egg Fried Rice,
Can I just say how you brought my taste buds back to life earlier this evening!? You were the epitome of deliciousness. Yum. Yum! YUM!!!

And Finally, Dear Winter Television Schedulers,
I don’t spend a lot of time in front of the television, but at the times I do settle down to watch something, it can be rather frustrating when you schedule two or three good programmes on different channels at the same time. Yes, I know I can record one of the programmes, but the whole point of not having a lot of time to sit in front of the TV should really give a bit of a clue that I don’t have time to watch what I’ve recorded… Could I ask that you schedule things a little better, just so they flow with each other a little better? That way, those of us who are caught up in this bizarre time vortex stand a little chance to see something?

Thank you for reading.

P.S. Here’s a picture of the sky:

Well, if there is one thing that is constantly changing, it’s the sky. This picture has been tweaked slightly, to enhance the colours, but that seems to make it become more alive.

    1. Oh yes, the Universe is always listening, Elaine!
      I don’t have catch up on the TV, so it’s only on the computer and I don’t like watching there… although I would, if I had the time to! 😉

    1. Normal? Around here, Beverly, normal can mean absolutely anything! Still, it’s all fun though!
      I don’t remember a storm with this sky, thinking about it…

  7. The post: Perfect!

    The photograph: I see an Ice Lolly, and a Lasso! There’s something else there too, but I’m going bunk eyed trying to ‘see’ it.

    1. Thanks Cobs. I can’t see what you see, unfortunately, but I can see a cartoon wolf in the bright bit in the middle! 😀
