Gather the Family

I am going on vacation in a couple of months. Like most of us it will be the first vacation for a few years and we have decided to go back to a hotel that we visited for the first time 20 years ago when our children were small. It's a family run, small hotel [...]

Tropical Bliss Spa

Tropical Bliss Spa

The sun is shining and there is a definite hint of spring in the air where I am in the world! You don't realise how much it buoys your spirit when there is a little bit of sun coming through, the clouds have cleared...and it's stopped bloody raining! At least in Second Life it can [...]

But It Would be Nothing, Nothing, Without a Woman or a Girl

But It Would be Nothing, Nothing,  Without a Woman or a Girl

Happy Monday everyone! I had a photo taking weekend and managed to catch up on several items I wanted to blog. The creative headspace comes and goes for me and I've learned that whenever I push myself to create a photo or scene when I am not in that headspace, it results in a photo [...]

Cooking to the Beets

We can lay around and count the number of times I've acted foolish and you've rolled your eyes You turn me on to the idea of growing old You in your kerchief and me in my cap We can settle down for an afternoon nap You turn me on to the idea of growing old [...]

Tropics Retreat

Tropics Retreat

A couple of weeks ago Mr Smith and I ventured to Kidaka Resort for a couple of days mid-week getaway.  I highly recommend this for a casual break but even more so this time of year when everywhere else, including my own region Snowdrops, is full of snow and wintery chills. It was partly that [...]
