Don't Abandon Your Blogs or your Pen


Forgive me...that title is a word to myself...

Just to be sure that I haven't entirely abandoned  the other page of my  web logging, "Write Purpose,"
 I posted a bit of a book review, no I would really call it more a book exposure, that I could have just as easily published here on "Bread on the Water," but you will find it here: Robert Raynold's Narrator.  It is actually a very fitting post for Valentine's Day because it is circles around  the question of what is at the heart of any story one tells.

My neighbor's daffodils...
which she planted and then moved off to Montana
When I first began blogging, I thought I would share more of my writing than I have thus far, but I find I have often been beguiled by the lovely views that have been mine and the thrill of digital photography often sweeps my pen right out of my hand.  The other day I  took this photo with my new phone. I have not yet learned the camera features, but the moss and daffodils still speak a bit here, I  hope.


Roses are Red,
Violets are Blue



and while I am here,
a happy Valentine's Day to you.  This little girl is saying hello to anyone sitting alone today,




the rest of you, as you are not on your own, should do fine on your own.

Now I better get on  my donkey and ride...

there certainly does seem to be a lull in blogland lately, myself included.

Such a delightful post! I truly enjoyed reading this! I came looking for you to thank you for the comments you leave for me on thehiddenpantry.blogspot.com But I stay for the enjoyment of your observations. Plus the title "Don't Abandon Your Blogs or your Pen." really hits home. As I am sure you know some days your heart has to search to keep it all going! So thanks! Diane

Thank you... I too have been ignoring my blogs, although I use the camera more than the pen.. but your post has inspired me to add and update, so I thank you so much.
