For Pinks:

21 Jan

Sometimes the toughest battle is the fight to be grateful when one receives less and less from life.


Not the best way to acknowledge post # 100, but when you have 3 years and 550 posts behind you, one tends to grab the moment and spread one’s insides all over it. Like grape jelly on multigrain bread.

    I need to laminate that quote and pin it up on my softboard beside the beatles and robin williams quotes. (being a famous print journalist is like the being the best dressed woman on radio).
    Very euridite 100th.

    I like how write about multigrain bread and the post is tagged Dark Chocolate. I wish this morning my breakfast tasted like your post.

    Congrats on the 100. And I know about the previous 500, non-prolific you’re not!

    Congrats on the century my darling OJ
    You do show us an untramelled way
    How to spin and web words
    Skillfully so like weaver birds
    And we, for more, will howl and bay!

    Aunty G: Oh, I must confess
    Life’s been a bit of a mess
    It’s kept me busy
    Had me spinning in a tizzy
    Methinks I’ll probably write far less.

    Piper: 😆 Nino’s Mum is the official comments-person on this blog. Everyone else just raises their hands and says “Aye” 😉

    rajni: Thanks, Rajni. Will try.

    OJ , please do not write any less. I have just about started feeling at home here.

    Here’s to you, for the tides to turn.

    In love with my life: Grab a cushion, make some coffee. It isn’t curtains yet. 🙂

    Happy 100, oh OJ.
    Your wise words are very often
    The thoughts for my day.

    Prosper and keep writing,
    The Muse always guiding
    Those fingers that keep typing
    And may there be no dearth
    Of subjects that keep inspiring.

    And in the meanwhile,
    By your wisdome we’ll be awed
    And at your funnies we’ll smile!
