Bendigo Easter Parade


I’ve recycled a photo from last year’s parade – Sun Loong, the world’s biggest Imperial Dragon.

I hope the photo inspires on this Easter Sunday :)

To Market, To Market

To market, to market to buy a . . .

Lots of Easter markets today and over the weekend. What is your favourite holiday activity?

Life is like photography, we all develop from negatives.

A writing prompt for today . . .

A lone Pelican flew across the horizon.

Inspired by a television show I watched recently :)

Knit one, purl one

Today’s prompt . . .

Knit one, purl one.

Hope this prompt will inspire you for the Positive Words magazine April Mini-competition – mini themes 2014

or another story, poem, article or memory.

For me, I’m remembering sitting in my Nan’s back room with the sun streaming in the window as she taught me my first stitches. What patience she must have had!

But . . .¬†the miles/kilometres of yarn I’ve knitted and purled since then have been worth every dropped stitch :)

Today’s prompt . . .

Beneath the full moon…

Inspired by the amazing view of the moon last night when I went out to lock up the chooks and the lunar eclipse expected tonight.

Over the years I’ve heard lots of stories about unusual happenings when there’s a full moon so I’m sure you will all come up with some interesting stories and poems :)
