Copies posted

I have been to the printers, picked up the magazine, and posted copies out. They should be winging their way to all parts of the UK, and Spain as I type.

It's all very exciting!


  1. How exciting it must be for you to see your 'baby' fly the nest.

  2. It is! It's also a nial biting time, as I wait to see if everyone likes it!

    Will someone pass me the wine please? I SAID... WILL SOMEONE PASS ME THE WINE. PLEASE! (and the chocolate...)

  3. Oops! I'm so nervous I have lost my ability to spell...

  4. Hi Vivienne, Sorry lost the plot. Is this edition 2 or 1 as is one winging its way to me ?

  5. It's edition 2 - and I have a huge apology to make to you... Shame on me. I spelled your name wrong on the cover. I got it right on the inside though! I'm really sorry I didn't spot it :(

  6. Ok teething problems! I won't throw a writers artistic sulk!
    Confirm it has now arrived.....Thanks.


An inspired poem

Dear Vivienne
inspiration from your blog picture
A Camera’s Eye View

Looking into a picture, starting from top left
The crows nests in the tree tops, gray sky’s causing silhouettes.

Following down the left hand edge, bare branches topped with snow
Tree trunks for all of us to see, as black as any crow.

Houses nestled in the woodland, roofs and chimneys tall
The evergreen of the fir trees, masking most, but not them all.

Let the eye drop down the river bank, small bushes all aglow
Standing proudly in the ground, topped off with winter snow.

The shallow water still and silent, bed rocks sticking through
Dark reflections of the trees, and individual branches too.

Suddenly a burst of light, of sunshine and of blue
Reflected in the river Tyne, intended just for you.

Feel that inspiration, as you stare in fascination
I’m glad you took your camera, and captured this creation

Ray Johnson.
looking forward to the mag best wishes
