Originally Blogging the Artist's Way. Thoughts, musings, experience of the 12-week course, January to March 2006. And after that?.... Life, creativity, writing. Where does it all meet? Here, perhaps.

Friday Feast

FIRST: If you haven't yet read my post about Jen Ballantyne, please do. She's an incredible woman who needs help, support, caring, prayers, people to witness her experience of cancer. Thank you

Appetizer Invent a new flower; give it a name and describe it.
(That's hard: All the good ones have been done already!) Ok. I love tubular-shaped flowers, so I'd create some really sweetly scented white tubular-shaped flowers, growing on slender stalks, a little like harebells, delicate and pretty. It will be a surprisingly long-lasting cut flower, and as the flower ages, a pink blush will take over the white. I'll call it Evening Blossom.

Soup Name someone whom you think has a wonderful voice. Guy Clark can cause chills up my spine. Bob Dylan too.

Salad On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being highest, how clean do you keep your car? I'm afraid I come in at about 3. I don't go to the car-wash often enough. What I notice is that after I go to the car-wash, I always have to drive on roads that are being dug up, and the car just gets all dirty again. Inside, I keep it fairly tidy. Nothing goes bad there. But there might be a pair of walking boots thrown behind my seat. There will be a scarf or gloves somewhere. There might be parking labels scattered on the dashboard, and a coffee-cup waiting a couple of days to be disposed of. Ok, is that 1? 2?

Main Course How do you feel about poetry? I love poetry. I'm (ahem) a published poet. I wrote a poem about "Why I Love Poetry" and posted it HERE. I don't often read a book of poems from cover to cover. I love to dip in and out. For a while a great online group called "Poetry Thursday" was responsible for much of what happened on my blog. I still miss it. Sorry you asked?

Dessert What was the last person/place/thing you took a picture of? The photos I posted HERE after my trip last weekend around places I used to visit some years ago. The actual last picture was the one of the Celtic Cross.

Thank you so much for your kind words about my little dog. She is doing a little better the past couple of days, but I know it is only a short reprieve.

Your Trixie literally 'spoke' to me from her portrait. What a sweet little dog!

Thank you darling, you are so kind and supportive and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Thank you also for your helpful comment just recently regarding my decision to go back to Hospice. I will definitely need a laptop or to take my computer with me, I cannot be without my support group and dear, dear friends. Love and Hugs to you my dear Jen B xxx
