small stones Jan 17

What are you? A gift of love
With cloves for your eyes
A smooth round wooden belly
A satisfyingly pointed nose
Little penguin of wood,
You remind me that life
Needn't be black and white
There's love and friends
And dreams to make happen
I love your green felted bottom.

small stones

It's a big year, I need a challenge and not just a New Year's Resolution type of challenge! I know I'm only finding this halfway through the month but better late than never.  It's a great idea and I used to 'brain-drain' every morning when I was following The Artist's Way, in my own kind of way, so now is a chance to do it again.

'That little boy came from me. I still find it hard to believe. He sits opposite me now with smiles in his eyes, tapping his toe and licking his lips as he watches an episode of Pingu on the DVD.  It's as if he understands exactly what they are saying as he giggles every now and then.  My little boy, growing up each day. I love you and all of our discoveries that lie ahead. Let's go and explore that world now!'

Moving on

I've been away from here for a while.  Life became quite hard there for a moment, it was dark and not just because we're in a small cottage with neighbours that park their car right up to our window...

Making a big move out of the city into the country is bound to have an affect on you, even two years on. I thought I had a handle on it but maybe I didn't quite have such a tight grip.

So hello there 2013 - I'm taking hold of you very tightly and am going to run, run, run!
