I write eclectic scribbles of no apparent value. Am new to RB as a member although I have long been an onlooker.
I produce some art but not for sale and am interested in the various writing groups mainly for fun but also any constructive criticism if someone happens to come across my scribbles.
I hope to slowly join other writing groups in search of communication/community.
I am also interested in digital photography but lack any equipment or skill in that realm as of now, but things are happening.
Wow! I have had a couple of responses to my scribbles. I’ll have to get serious and find out how RB works.
Gradually working my way through the intricacies of biting my tongue and insisting on having the right word or none.
I remain constantly surprised at the responses and encouragement from within RB
Since the advent of a Canon A3100 P&S in my life my scribbles have changed somewhat, I now enjoy scribbling something or other to accompany a picture or vice versa.
One thing that doesn’t change is my still constant surprise at the support, encouragement and friendships that are appearing more and more here

Finally

At last I have managed to put something out there. It’s not a great piece and really should have just remained as a conversation, or better yet written as one with lots of exclamation points and question marks, stuff for emphasis. / Or even stayed out of it altogether, after all some of my best friends are rabid, should that read avid?, football fans. / I enjoyed writing it and it did allow…

How to return from here?

How to return from here? A predicament for me. Having been gone for so long, not having anything to post. The flow that was has been swept away by the tides of health. Not that I feel in poor health, in fact I’ve rarely felt better in myself than I do now. It’s just this weary old body, this shell within which I live. The different circuits, chemical,electrical, pulmonary.The dragging…
