A book, chocolates and miserable weather.....!

Freezing wind and falling rain
 I sit here with these

But it is very hard to read
when your face is awash with tears

and they have been flowing almost since I opened the first page of this
incredible, amazing, beautiful book!

I have also giggled,
 climbed barbed wire fences to grab an apple or two
and tasted every bite

I have learned about fear, anger, bigotry and hate
I have learned about friendship, love, honesty and decency

I have indulged in words, wonderful, magical words
I have drowned in words that made my heart sing
I have walked with death for 584 pages
and I could not stop!

I honestly do not know what else to say about this book
except that I loved every word

"It was Monday and they walked
on a tightrope to the sun"
                               Markus Zusak

Have you read it?

*I do like to recommend books if I love them
but I don't know if you like my taste
and if you don't it is rather a waste of time and I will find something else!!!!!


If you haven't and you do because of this post
please come back and let me know what you thought

she gets sick of them?

Where do you find your inspiration....?

Every day for a fortnight I have started this post
and every day for a fortnight it has ended up as a draft!!!!!

Do you have times when you just can't seem to make it work?
no matter how hard you try
In fact that just seems to make it harder!!!!

So looking for inspiration I went to the newspaper
(That was a suggestion I heard at Blogopolis!)

Oh dear that would have led to a post of such vitriol and violence I thought perhaps not!!!

Something gentler and prettier was needed to give me a little push

So once more it went to draft
 and I wandered off to Tumblr
to visit a friend who had moved from Blogger

Imagine what a shock it was to discover that
has a Tumblr blog!!!!

I have no idea when I set this up and it only has two posts
(now three)
and it has one follower
bless her!!!

How can icing sugar, almond meal
and a bit of colouring and flavour
become something quite so pretty and delicious?

Tim Walker......
This man has the most amazing mind...it is so far outside the box
I don't believe he can even see the edges!!!!
I love his work

So those are my two Tumblr posts

Now what to do with it?
Do I continue or do I toss it?

it got me back here and I must be grateful for that
now I am going to have a look at those other drafts and see if they can be rescued!!!

Do you have times when it doesn't work for you?
Where do you find your inspiration?
