Letters to the Universe… The Earworm Edition!

Dear Temperature,
Always nice to feel you rise as Summer approaches, but would you mind rising a little more gradual this year rather than hitting us full pelt one morning and remaining at sweltering for several weeks… I only ask so that we can have time to adjust and enjoy you more!

Dear Traffic Lights,
Such a pleasure when you change to green as I approach. You cut my journey time by half when you do this, and it is quite exhilarating when each of you change in turn as I approach! I really would like to experience this phenomenon more often.

Dear The Word Phenomenon,
You always make me smile when I see you, which is a little strange I know, but you do. And when I say you, I think of…

Always a joy!

Dear The Word Flibbertigibbet,
You too are another word that makes me smile, and I couldn’t let this opportunity pass without saying so!

Dear All The Small Things,
You simply amuse me! Fabulous!

Dear Articulated Lorry Driver,
Should you really be hurtling down a road at such a speed in a vehicle your size? I was going to say that you could easily not see a vehicle as small as mine when doing so, but as you overtook me you obviously saw me. All I can say is take care next time – I’m sure your stopping distance will be greatly increased should you need to brake sharply.

Dear Tufty,
Just to say it was a pleasure as always to see you floating in the Lake with your beak tucked under your wing whilst you slept. When that gust of wind got up and spun you around like it did, I was laughing with you and not at you! Hope you didn’t get too dizzy!

Dear Paintbrushes,
I do intend to use you again, I do!, and I will do so soon. Just making a few readjustments time-wise, and then you will be back in action!

Dear Balmy Evening,
Such a pleasure to walk out in you the other evening, even though I was only walking to the supermarket. You made waiting to cross the pedestrian crossing all the more pleasant.

Dear Moonlight,
It was so comforting seeing your brilliant glow shining through my window last night. You are very relaxing and helped me drift off into a replenishing and rejuvenating sleep. I didn’t look rejuvenated when I awoke once again, but I felt it… so thank you!

And to finish… Dear All,
Greet a stranger with a smile. A smile from a stranger may be all that they need to make their day.

Thank you for reading!

Here’s a photo of Lucie Jones to finish. Lucie who??

LUCIE JONES! She is representing the United Kingdom in the Eurovision Song Contest in Ukraine this weekend. Brexit or no Brexit, good luck Lucie! Just to be sure.

Letters to the Universe… Fabulous First Edition!

Dear Lake,
Walking around you at lunchtime was as pleasant as it always is. And the addition of those little black chicks I spotted by the water’s edge made the walk all the more special today.

Dear Sunshine,
Thank you for helping to brighten the walk around the Lake and warming the breeze, which, if I’m honest, did pick up just a tad at times.

Dear Red Car Driver,
Having a red car should really remind you that a red traffic light means stop. You should know that when a traffic light has changed to red, speeding through it will not make it change colour again until it is time.

Dear Woman Driving the Battered Old Brown Car,
You must learn to use your mirrors when driving, especially when you choose to cut up into a line of traffic as you are in the wrong lane. Driving like yours in those conditions can lead to multiple pile-ups, which I’m sure is something you wouldn’t want on your conscience for the rest of your life.

Dear Seedlings,
I’m pleased to see more of you now, although you are all still very tiny. I look forward to the next few weeks to see you grow big and strong.

Dear Knees and Ankles,
Thank you for creating such a wonderful rhythm as you click alternatively when I walk up or down stairs, although if you insist on doing so, could I ask that you do it a little quieter, especially when there are other people around?

Dear Things To Do List,
I’m grateful for the fact that I have you, but could you try to be a little shorter when time is of the essence? When time is in abundance, you can be as long as you like (within reason, of course!)

Dear Blogland,
Another week has gone by without hardly any visits or comments from me. I must stop saying I will get around to it, when I obviously don’t. I’ve written a letter to my to-do-list, which I hope will improve the situation immensely, and I can get back into the blogging groove fully.

Dear Spicy Chicken, Hash Brown, Cheese and Mayonnaise Wrap,
You were delicious earlier this afternoon, and filled a space nicely. Thank you.

Dear Elaine,
I hope you don’t mind me ‘borrowing’ your Friday Letters format. I enjoyed writing these short letters to the Universe, and I hope that some (if not all!) reach their intended addressees.

And to finish… Dear All,
Try to spread light, smiles and laughter, no matter how your mood may be making you feel. It costs nothing, and you do get something back from it yourself. What a bargain!

Thank you for reading,

Here’s a photo of a penguin to finish. Just because:

A PEACOCK. I mean a peacock! Just to be sure.

Blog Lovin’! Do you fancy a bit?

My ‘art’ and ‘creativity’ blog – with dramatic licence, of course! And colour. Mostly.

The new home to my Superhero Diaries stories / snippets / samples.

And the main blog. Almost anything goes. Usually into a black hole never to be seen again, but sent there with one purpose, nay, one intention… to Feel Good. Updated daily. Or thereabouts.

This has been a shameless advertisement feature to promote blog lovin’.  Click the images to visit the respective blog. The links should work. Hopefully.

Well, I love bloggin’, I do! Why not promote it?

Now then, do I… ah…

Always at the forefrint of cutting edge technology is where you’ll find me, and that is where I am now. At the forefrint.

I’m not very technologically minded, mind, so being at the forefront, or being a pioneer, with any kind of new-fangled whatzits doesn’t come without its challenges.

Challenges are good though, otherwise they aren’t challenges, and they are just. And so, I am here, just.

Here is the New WordPress App for Windows. I mean, here I am, using the New WordPress App for Windows.

I downloaded it the other day, and have decided to try it now. Normally, I type and create away in Windows Live Writer, but using this App is just like being in WordPress itself. The colours, the look and feel, even the menu bar at the top. I can see my stats, look at the map of the world, view posts I follow all through this App without even going anywhere near my web browser.

Well, I’m near it. The two icons are next to each other on the desktop, as this image shows:


But although I’m near it, I’m not actually in it, yet I’m using it all the same! Remarkable.

Posting via the Power of the Paradox. Now there’s something new.

Paradoxically speaking, though, this post isn’t really about anything, apart from the post itself.

This post, which I’m now posting. I’ve found the Publish button.

Well, here goes…

The Superhero Diaries 3.6: Soopaburgah!

The Elite Force of Britain. A group of superheroes united in a common cause that unites them. However, at present that unity hangs in the balance as some of the team have been catapulted into a different time zone. And not only that… a greasy spoon burger van has pulled up outside their top secret headquarters and is cashing in on their good name(s).

Could one go as far as saying that not only their prices are criminal? Here’s a menu they surreptitiously left lying around…
