Recently I discovered image quotes and find them to be quite therapeutic. I read dozens of them until I find one that hits the spot for where I am now at. Here is today’s choice:
I like this quote and thought I would share it.
If you are interested in letters, then this is the book for you! Do you have a favourite letter? Mine is the letter g ! My apologies for the lack of a photo for this photo challenge!
I must be the most ungrateful person around. I have just landed a writing job for one day a week. I am really enjoying my studies even though I am feeling under time pressure a little. We are having guests for the weekend and I need to tidy up the house. So if that is all I have to worry about, then I am a very lucky person. A bit of hard work and a […]
I think this photo is a good candidate for this week’s topic. It is of my son, part-way through the Appalachian Trail in 2012.
I met a friend for coffee yesterday afternoon. We hadn’t seen each other for a while. We talked about what work opportunities were about and what we both have done recently.

One of them cashew apples. We had a cashew tree in our yard – you couldn’t eat the nuts without baking but the fruit was really yummy. I found this photo of my Mum taken in 1983. She traveled by bus from […]
In my current studies I am learning about writing fiction and really enjoying it. I am currently working on a 2,500 word assignment. I have the ideas in my head and some words on paper. On reflecting about this new interest, I found two really positive benefits: 1. I can use my own life experience and feelings and infuse them into the characters in my story. I can control the outcomes of these characters and […]
I found this quote and thought how appropriate it is in the information age! As the biggest library if it is in disorder is not as useful as a small but well-arranged one, so you may accumulate a vast amount of knowledge but it will be of far less value than a much smaller amount if you have not thought it over for yourself.
