  1. Colleen, last week I wrote on the lovely ekphrastic theme provided by Reena S. but had a hard time posting it to Mr. Linky. ( think it was the day you mentioned having WP headaches) I gave up posting. I’d like to post it to celebrate the lovely photo and also to celebrate camaraderie with the group. Actually, the little poem (Shadorma) asks that I post it here. hehe. At Mr. Linky– last week. Find me there. Thanks.
    Glad all your problems have been resolved with WP. You’re so techy… *clapping*

  2. Well, I’d been looking out for Tanka Tuesday all day, and it never came. It was only when Britta published her poem that I realised that you had published your post- without the customary email arriving to tell me so. What IS WP up to?

          1. No, I can comment on your blog, and I seem to be signed up again. But several other bloggers whom I follow are having real issues just now.
