New direction


So we're back from our six months trip to Canada and the USA. I've posted the last travel post (over there) and there will be just a map and a final round-up to come in a few days and then that blog will be left alone for a while I suppose (maybe forever). As for this one (this blog that I have been keeping since, can you believe it, 2007!) I just started to feel it had run its course so I'm leaving it today and moving to a new place. For a start the format/template of this one looks so old now but I can't bear to change it at this stage - partly because this is the way it's always looked and I've had some good times within these boxes (some hard times too). This blog has seen me through all kinds of poetry nonsense, the death of my Mum, various changes and friendships and complications... so I am just going to leave it as it is and take a bit of a hike over to a new blog over here. Come visit. Bring cookies.

p.s. Mark took this photo at Thessalon, Ontario a couple of weeks back.

OK, I'm heading over to the new place now. But all I have with me is a glass of water & some wadded up tissues - sorry!

Water always comes in handy! x

Hope there'll be more "poetry nonsense" on your new blog too! :) The photo is gorgeous.

will keep on rambling with ya

Rachel Fox said...

I'm really not sure about poetry just now, Marion. Maybe there will be... maybe there won't. I don't mind either way.

Good news, Niamh. Good to have you around.

Heyup, good to have you back - will be popping back and forth to the respective blogs until I have caught up! I may be some time....I'm bringing some ridiculously neurotic seed buns with a controversial chocolate topping...yeah, because I know how to live it up and stay healthy - woohooo!

Rachel Fox said...

Neurotic buns? Sounds perfect.

Oh! Welcome back, and sayonara at the same time to my good friend Whatever-Your-Name-Is! So, your life has shifted, has it? Wonderful! I'm off to see what you'll do now, and please give our hugs to your crew. I've lost 25 pounds and you wouldn't recognize me now. Like you, I'm a changed woman. I thought of you as I posted the prompt for this week's Poetry Jam (Songs for the Dead). I celebrated the first anniversary of my mother's death this week and it inspired a strange little poem on my blog (dead mothers). I hope you still do poems. You're good. I would like us to stay in touch. I'll link your blog on mine, unless it's adult-content only?? I'm off to see...

I'm kind of having a debate with myself about poetry just now... nothing too intense... a laid-back interchange...

We were at a wedding this weekend though and M read a poem of mine for the couple. That was nice. I'd forgotten how good it could feel to have your words mean something to people like that.

That is a beautiful photograph, Rachel. I'm excited to visit your new space. :)

Rachel Fox said...

Yes, my nearest can turn his hand to most things... photography too it seems. x
