Beyond the Sphere

Where oh where has this year gone? Are we really almost in December? Already??? As I said last month, time waits for no man, and I think this is the proof! Mind you, it’s now the season to be taking things a little easier, in readiness for all that hectic Christmas shopping! GAH!!! At least I have the theme sorted. Yes, the theme for December simply has to be:

‘tis the season

If you so wish to use the theme for one or more of your posts during December, here are all the details you need:

There aren’t any rules actually, just a few guidelines:

  • Write a post (or more, if your imagination is well and truly fired!) based on the theme I provide. The post can take any form / genre / length you choose.
  • Link your post to the post on this blog (Beyond the Sphere) that introduces the theme for the month (so basically, THIS POST for December’s theme!)
  • Visit other bloggers who take part, and read their interpretation of the theme.
  • And that’s it! Oh, and if you could pass the word on, that would be lovely. The more the merrier after all!

And have fun!

Still having intermittent issues with Pingbacks intermittently, but some are working. Try it and see, I say!

Can you believe we are nearly in November? Although time waits for no man, I think in November we should be able to give a little of our time regardless to show gratitude, so this is a little hint to the new theme! After the madness of Halloween month, it is time to take a more restful approach, so that said, during November, post:

…with gratitude…

Still having issues with Pingbacks, but onwards and upwards and all that jazz!

October is fast approaching, so it’s new theme time once again! After the Serenity of September, we now go over to the realms of Halloween. I can feel my Inner Monsters, Zombies and even Fangers (my Inner Typist – he’s Fingers for the other eleven months of the year but his spelling is shocking) stirring, desperate to be unleashed for another month of utter Halloween madness. I can only apologise! So, October’s theme simply had to be:

Trick or Treat

The Pingback Gremlins are still doing their bit and keeping hold of their favoured Pingbacks in MOST cases, although they are letting some through… so we’ll just have to get along with what we can for now!

Autumnal colours enhanced by starlight
I’m entranced by Moonlight
Mystified by soft sounds carried upon the breeze

Bewitched by the beauty
Enchanted by the evening
And spellbound by the simple awe-inspiring surrounding scene

grinds

I’ve been walking around the Grinds, armed with my mobilius phoneous and decided to take a few photos as we begin our journey into Autumn proper.

comma

This chap seemed to want to come along on the walk with me, part of the way, anyway. Well, I walked, he flew. Fluttered. He’s a comma, and is quite common apparently, although he is the first one of his species I have ever seen. Gorgeous Autumn colours.

tufty

Next stop, the Lake. Tufty, the tufted duck, was there, posing for his photograph as usual. Some of his other duck friends hurried in to be photographed as well. Here’s a closer view of Tufty:

tufty

Further around, I found this duck ducking. Up and down beneath the water’s surface he went, popping up for air, and then going back down once more, almost tipping over onto his back. Very comical to watch, but he knew what he was doing.

carriage-return

Two of his friends watched his antics from the bank. They didn’t look too amused, but sometimes you can’t tell with ducks, can you?

audience

And finally, proof, if it was needed, that Autumn is here. Still a lot of green about, but we are also being treated to golds, and reds, and browns, and yellows, and oranges.

autumns-here

And after that little jaunt, we are now back once again, for a nice little rest. Happy Autumn!
