Am all done and tired of lugging, moving, dumping, dragging, pulling and pontificating over stuff!

Follow this link to see the build up to today's eventual leaving of the shores if you want to know … Continue reading Morrigan’s travel beads… 21st October 2019
22nd February 2022 Being signed off sick - and finally giving into doctor's orders and salvaging what is left of my failing health - has also given hours and hours of past reflection, present feelings and future decisions...perhaps. She says... indecisively... The tinge of Guilt accompanying writing when I should be working - or should … Continue reading Relinquishing The Past…
September 30th 2021: I feel disinclined to write. Or do much of anything in fact Currently sat in a friend's apartment in Emirates City, alone as per, but grateful as hell, and reflecting on what comes next.

His abstract, often complex Cubist creations with a distinct African feel and his portraits of the women in his life, are all infused with a strange and sometimes macabre sadness.

So today I cheated. I chose all six prompts from the last 6 days and amalgamated them to write one block of 6 x 50 words expected of me...nothing if not crafty, that's me! Reminded immediately of a pen my husband bought me long ago, one that I craved on first sight but abandoned as … Continue reading Promptation!
