Rory has some interesting questions on The Really You challenge, I’m game. (hardeharharhar)
How much Television [alternatively films through the PC/DVD’s or Streamed TV] do you watch per week, month or year?
I don’t watch regularly programmed TV, at all. Haven’t hooked up the cable in over 13 years. We do watch one episode of various old TV shows per evening as part of our night time routine. On Saturdays we splurge and watch a DVD movie. Total less than 7 hours per week. Although now that I read that my inner accountant is going WHOA!!! YOU’RE WASTING 366 HOURS of your year on mindless viewing, surely that time can be put to better use. Hmmmmm we’ll have to see. Continue reading “The Really You Challenge”
For Sue’s weekly photo prompt #writephoto
Dawn breaks above the snowy hills
cast away dark fear and ills
beyond the clouds, bright color spills
The night was long, dark and cold
nightmares flee as dawn unfolds
’til the sky is bright with colors bold
Colors dim now blossom bright
blends of purple a warming sight
now herald the coming of the light
Til next time ~Peace ~JPP
Sadje of “Keep it Alive” is resurrecting the What Do You See Prompt, here’s what she has to say:
Dear friends, as some of you know that our dear Hélène used to do this Prompt and after her sad departure, I have felt that this gap needs to be filled. I have decided to take this challenge up and as a trial, I will post 4 challenges for the next 4 Mondays at 12:00 am PST, every Monday morning. And we shall see where to go from there. I hope that you will respond to your posts.
You can write a post on your blog and create a ping back to link to the original post.
Write an original story, poem or a caption.
You have six days to respond to the Prompt.
I will try to reblog your response on my blog.
There is no limit to words or format but keep it family friendly.
I will do a round up next Sunday before the next Prompt is posted.
Please tag your responses with #Whatdoyousee
Encounter with Air
She gazed upward, straining her neck and bending her back to see the top of him. He stood in magnificence, Guardian of Air, powerful, frightening, and beautiful. Star smiled, just slightly, and summoned her Voice. Continue reading “What Do You See? — Encounter with Air”
I was tagged for the imagination plantation challenge by Di at pensitivity101 for the challenge that originated with Nova Namaste, thanks it was fun. The first thing that struck me was the commotion of the piece and it’s child-like energy. Thus was born a Dr. Seussish little ditty.
A Midsummer’s Day
On a mid summer’s day
in the land of Hullabalu
Sandy was walking
and talking with Booou
“It’s a fine sort of day
everyone’s out and about,”
Sandy said to Booou
raising her voice to a shout
Booou frowned in reply
“there’s just too much noise
from helicopters and trains
from all the girls and boys”
Sandy said “come let’s leave
the city’s noisy crowds far behind
venture out into the forest
who knows what we’ll find.”
That’s just what they did
and do you know what they found?
No shouts, no horns honking
just a whisper of sound
The most beautiful melody
lilting along on the breeze
the song of the forest
wafting soft through the trees

The Ebony Wisps had sharp talons and needle-like teeth. They feared only one thing, birds. The children strung open cages between the buildings inviting the birds to come. The birds loved the new homes and twittered merrily away while dive bombing any Wisp that came within reach.
