|2014 March bloom!|
Monday, 3 March 2014
On one of the coldest days of the year, my cactus plant has decided to bloom again.
Not being one of those people with particular luck in the houseplant field, I am thrilled to see this little pink bloom.
It seems especially nice to see a bright spot in a day of political conflict and apprehension in the world.
I am sharing this flower as a sign of hope for peaceful resolution of the tension along the Russian border with the Ukraine.
On a more upbeat note, one of my poems, Winter Blueprint, and a related photo are now posted at Rhymes and Times Remembered.
For the last while, have been working on reorganizing my writing space. Quite a project!
Hope all is well with everyone.
Have a great week! :)

February is continuing to be a cold month.
This weekend, finally had a chance to see the movie, Monuments Men. It has a cast of favourites with George Clooney, Matt Damon and others forming a group who take on the task of retrieving stolen art works in WWII. What a daunting task, with many ups and downs as the team tries to locate and rescue these items. There is a wide range of opinion on this movie, itself. Will leave it to you for giving it a ranking out of 4 stars;
The Olympics are proceeding with lots of close competition, fractions of a second sometimes.
The figure skating and hockey seem to be drawing the most interest here.
Well, whatever you are celebration to start the week, have a good one!
