Ta Ta For Now in case you were wondering…..I’m off on my travels for a few days and my laptop is staying at home so, although I’ll check in from time to time I won’t be posting anything new until Friday. This time I’m off to Florence and, as it’s the first time I’ve been there, I am really looking forward to it :O)

#FOWC: Advanced

The war had been raging on for more than a century; a country, once a bastion of hope and promise was slowly but surely being destroyed. It’s vast territories were becoming increasingly uninhabitable as bombs tore apart the earth, the chemicals contained within poisoning every living thing within minutes.

Song Lyric Sunday: Soul

Happy Sunday one and all! I hope that you’ve had a great week and are now enjoying your weekend. I can think of few better ways to spend a Sunday morning than sorting through my music collection trying to find a track for Song Lyric Sunday which is brought to us by the lovely Helen. If you love music and enjoy making new WP friends, I urge you to play along :O) 

#FOWC: Guide

You found me, the real me, hidden behind the face I showed to the world

You listened. You held me when I was afraid. You helped me explore

Those fears which caused me to live behind the high barricade

Friday Follies: Ooh Err Missus!

There are times when we should just unleash our inner adolescent and snicker at double entendres and that’s what’s on offer here. I came across Friday Follies thanks to Fandango but apparently it was the brainchild of his friend Proscenium so thanks to them both!

#FOWC: Disrupt

“Is this what they mean by a bridezilla?” asked Tony looking fearfully at his fiance.

He couldn’t understand it, Jayne was normally a level headed kind of girl, why was she getting so bent out of shape over something so trivial?

It’s over and done with, the future is only in our imagination and that we should all live in the present to truly appreciate what life has to offer. For the most part I would agree but I watched something yesterday which made me realise how incredibly lucky most of us are to able to live in our ‘present’ and it involved visiting the past….

I’m sure that many of you already know Richard’s work but, if you don’t I urge you to pay a visit to his site. The poem I’m sharing with you today has incredible power. It is deeply moving but, at the same time, is brutally real…’ll see what I mean; I really hope you like it….

He loved this time as it was the last He kissed his wife like fleeing a past He hugged his child as a prodigal son Then, he crossed the street lonesome He climbed a building hearing calls In the roof he raised four solid walls Brick by brick, feeding the sad ideas In his dull […]

#FOWC: Danger

She was rigid with fear, tears streaming down her face. She couldn’t understand how someone she loved so much could do something so awful to her.
