Our communion of writing

As the stars, sun and moon keep balance with each other, I too feel blanketed in the synergy here that shines its light through this place of writing.

Often times posts appear on the same or similar subject. It constantly amazes me how this happens within this vast land of united creativity.

In my imagination I see us all as a force of fertile overlapping circles. Bridging the gap. A balance between imagination & frustration.

We are in the same space, different place.
Different stories, same tune.
Like minded exchanges. Some challenging thoughts, views to stimulate thought.

Each story, each journey miles apart, but here we confess, unburden, fess up, confide, enlighten, encourage, incite, evoke every emotion.

Friendships made. Stories written. Hands reach out.
Holding on. Breathing deep. A lifeline for some.
A light for the night time. A few words for the day ahead.

Alone, but not lonely.

Though for some, the fear is always in residence,
punching through the darkness,
bravely we walk, hesitant to run.

Hope is always in my pocket,
I can feel it's shape comforting me through the fabric
that is straining with each beat of its heart

and I remember..
hope is stronger than the fear...
the life blood, we cannot live without.

Less restrained. Unburdened. Here we dare to hope. To speak. To write. To breathe deeply within the comfort of friends.


  1. Oh, this is warm and fuzzy. It's true, there are weeks where we are all on the same topic. Time, place, histories have disappeared.

  2. That is beautiful Saz, you have said a lot recently. Hope all is well with you


  3. Never a truer word, Saz
    but something a bit different at my place and your arms are wizzing about all over the place!!

  4. wonder what would be the result if we were set a topic, like a school essay.How many different takes there would be on it
    You know,write 30 words on dust lol

  5. How strange, I've often thought how interesting it would be to read everyone's interpretation of a set topic too.

  6. Ok, let's do it. You start us off.

  7. You have quite as lovely a way with words as you do with a camera!

  8. Saz,

    That was true. We are all different, from difference spaces and places, yet we are very much the same.

    Love it...thanks for sharing.


    We might all have a different perspective on the topic. You know, when we all see the same event but see what each other did not see.

    Question is, would the outcome end up being the same for us all? I like your thought. Maybe you should present it and see what happens...hmmmm interesting :)

  9. It is a wonderful thing, isn't it? I am always amazed and gratified at the response I get when I write passionately about something, and also at how many others are willing to express similar thoughts.

  10. thanks for your comments, we are of same mind, different perspectives is true, and we all join together for this daily commune...great isn't it?


  11. I know, isn't it lovely - sorry not been in touch for a while - a lot happening! Hope you're OK Lx

  12. That's so true. I marvel about it too. How can we all be thinking of the same or similar things and blogging about it?

  13. it really is a rather unique place this blogosphere. i am so glad i found it and have had the pleasure of meeting folks like you and moannie. the chance to mingle among the world and make my own little space where i can invite others has been such a delight.

  14. I'm sometimes surprised that similar posts seem to crop up at the same time, although I tend to think "Damn, I was going to write about that!" Not sure I'll have the time or discipline to join in with your Mr Linky on a topic, but I'll enjoy reading a few. Good luck.

Thanks for stopping by!

Take the weight of your feet, draw up a chair and pour yourself a cuppa. Leave your troubles at the door and together we shall ride out the storms.
I will walk a while in your shoes...

Tesco - every little helps

Last year I bought myself a new camera online from Tesco. One of those emails arrived in my inbox with a 'deal of the day'  and for me the camera was the dog bollocks, in as much as it had a large 8 mega pixel whatsit .... and a large LCD, and yes I do like things big.. say no more! Oh and it is red! which is almost as good as purple but not quite, like size colour of inanimate objects does matter. It was a great price and the bonus was that it came with a, yes you guessed it, large  memory card. Total cost £74.
It arrived quickly but not with the promised memory card, so I contacted Tesco and they apologised, told me they'd run out and would credit me for the cost of the memory card. I found to my surprise a credit of £36.99 in my bank account, so the camera was only £37! I bought the same memory card from Amazon for a few pounds only, so a  result, thank you Tesco!
A few weeks ago my girlfriend's washing machine broke down in its last month before the 12 month warranty…

What a difference....

a year makes!

It has taken me the better part of the last month, to access my blogs (and Moannie's) as I feared it had alas been removed from the ether. Playing around with passwords and email addresses...I'm in again.

My last post , just 10 months ago...burst my seams, as again I realised how so much has changed!

I'm still,  in my new wee home, with Joey (dog) and Monty (cat).

My lovely son has returned from uni in the USA, attained a First Class degree and started work in London last Autumn as a writer...the world his oyster for the taking! My hero!

My beautiful daughter is in Leeds, amid her Midwifery degree, working at a Brazilian first class restaurant, all loved up with the Spanish Chef.... a meeting is on the cards AND he is taking her to meet his Mama is Spain this summer, so must be serious methinks! So proud!

My hugely supportive brother (TOAOS) is living contently in the Garden of England with his wife and Harry the cutest dog!!

My younger and what a stunner sis…


..and here we are firmly into a new year and I am sitting up wide awake in bed, yet again... I am reflecting upon what was in 2013 and what wasn't.

The 'what wasn'ts ' are left where they are, filed and duly noted, I shall unremember them.

However for the 'what was' ' and that which I choose to bring with me into 2014, are the things that are memorable, enriching, happy and surprising, be them the tiniest fragment of joy or the biggest new thing on the block!

I didn't get off to a great start in January as we had only recently lost Mumma a few months before, the countdown to my son's second year of uni starting mud summer in the States and i was in the middle of a roller-coaster of negotiations trying to secure a business lease and plan for a potential opening. I wasn't at my best and i was running low on fuel.

However as always when faced with a challenge I was defiant and rose to several occasions, decisions with all the positivity I could mus…
