Maureen, referred to your blog today on Transformative Blogging's post on using images... have loved your All Art Fridays for some time now. Let me know if you need anything changed...I see that (grr) I gave you an O instead of an E when announcing it on the Bloggers group today. Was there by an chance a second middle name in contention when you were in the running for middle names?!  Apologies... Here's the link for How to Use Images on Your Blog: Imaginal Cells, The Fantasy Astrology Store and Alternate Histories.

You're most welcome, Maureen Doallas. I love the way reading a poem forces you to slow down in a busy day. So thank you, for sharing your poemn and helping me have a few moments to myself (not easy with an ill 4 year old!). I had a brief look at your twitter poetry thing too and may well go for it - 2013 has got to be the year I start taking my writing seriously! Keep up the lovely writing X

Politics and Prose is a wonderful store, isn't it? (Or is that just that it hits my two passions?!)
