Sevens to Murgatroyd! Over the weekend, this blog turned seven years old. Since 2010 I’ve been (mostly) posting daily doses of waffle and wonderment (and at times I do wonder what I was thinking!) but on the whole I can honestly say that I’ve enjoyed (nearly) every moment of it. I’ve ‘met’ some absolutely fabulous folk through Blogland, with varied interests and thoughts, some of … Continue reading Seven
Debbie’s theme for her one-word photo challenge (One-Word Sunday) this week is Spectacle, so I thought I’d take it literally and make a spectacle of my spectacle collection. They aren’t actually my spectacles, just my collection of them, so I suppose that does make them mine, just not mine mine. I also thought to try my hand at using some of the photo manipulation tools … Continue reading Spectacle
I wanted to take an unusual photo of the bluebells this past weekend, so twisted myself into all sorts of peculiar angles to get ‘the’ shot. I’m a bit achy today, but never mind about that. The photo above is the one, I feel. Whilst taking the photos, I accidentally took a Selfie of myself, of my usual standard, I must add: And just by … Continue reading The Bluebell Selfie
The Title Above Says It All Six Word Saturday once again And this time I’m doing it right. Oh, Heavens to Murgatroyd! Almost. Sigh. About the image: Image obtained from Pixabay. Continue reading Restful Saturday after a Hectic Week
Today’s post is brought to you by a form of contemporary dance. Mostly the aspects of unpredictable changes in rhythm and speed, jerky directional movements and sudden falls and recovery, it is interspersed with a jolting head-bobbing movement and rapid eye-blinking. Water is on hand for thirst-quenching properties and painkiller takeage alike. Legwork is calm and controlled. Nimble fingers gingerly tumble effortlessly and meaningfully across … Continue reading Today’s Post
Look ahead Enjoy the view See with clarity What you want to do Breathe in deep Let inspiration flow Take the first few steps And away you go Walk then run Or leap then fly Follow your dream Reach for the sky Continue reading Field of Dreams

Drum Roll Please. Shuffling sound heard as envelope is swiftly opened. The Poortrait is of… Tom Cruise! Rapturous applause heard from around the room. Lights flashing, highlighting members of the audience clapping and cheering. Smiling. Laughing. Open-mouthed. Puzzled. Confused. Bewildered. Commotion on stage. Officials on stage. The wrong envelope. The Wrong Envelope. The wrong announcement. What are the chances of that??? Shuffling sound heard as … Continue reading Poortrait. El Revealo!
As per usual, I’m stumped for a post idea… so, I’ve opted for an old favourite… Poortrait time! Pictured above is a rough, rushed and not quite complete poortrait of someone who is or should be well known to the public. Although, I could be wrong as my previous poortrait proved. Never the less, I’m going with it. Now then, two questions this time… who … Continue reading Poortrait Time!
Debbie’s one-word photo theme for this week is Light, and I found myself wondering how I could take an interesting looking photo to highlight light. I have an incense burner with stars and the Moon cut out, and I thought both starlight and moonlight together with candlelight would be ideal to highlight light. I set about taking photos, in the dark, to highlight light even … Continue reading Light
Just managing to squeeze this entry in before it’s time for the next theme! Debbie’s one-word photo theme for this week is Glass. I’m not sure whether the recent Idon’tknowwhat can be blamed for this, but I was stumped as to what I could use to fit this theme. I could re-use the globe from ‘Imagine’ the other week, I thought, but it’s too soon. … Continue reading Glass
The blank page is inviting. Crisp. Clear. Anticipating writing. Words and sentences, paragraphs and chapters. Mystery twists and happy-ever-afters. Intrigue and plotlines Drama, and sometimes Comedies of errors And other storytellers’ Tricks to keep us hooked Within the pages, within the books… Although the blank page is also revealing No words to relay its meaning Yet with space to fill It shows a mind, … Continue reading Not on the page
Just taking a quick break. ‘Though you shouldn’t notice. Posts are being scheduled. I’m in a galaxy Far, far, far, far away… Mobile signal patchy. Beach is very dusty. The nights are very cold. The cocktails are good though. Went to the beach funfair. Got stuck in the Fun House. And the Hall of Mirrors. The less said the better. See you when I get … Continue reading Six Syllable Sat’day: Out of here!
