It is a long way from a little island in North SeaΒ to the British shores but I did it albeit in a circuitous route.

Much will be revealed as I go along.

I tried my hand at many things but the Arts have always been my love. From tender years books were never far from my side.

Even my den among the rocks had a bookshelf fashioned by my friend and me.

Welcome to my eclectic blog, I hope to see you around.

  2. I am delighted to have you here, welcome.
    It is an honour to hear you want to hear more of my poetry. Rest assured you will. πŸ˜‰
    You are right about the ‘strange’ technical world. It is important to know who is the boss……us or the various computers.
    p.s. At least I send hand written postcards.πŸ¦‰πŸŒ»

    • Yes, I noticed many similarities when I visited your blog and believe
      my answers there gave me away. πŸ™‚
      As time goes and writing builds up I am sure we will all give more and more
      insight to our inner selves.
      Thank you so much for following my postings.

  8. You are very welcome Sarah and I am glad I happened upon your blog.
    I truly believe that some relationships can grow very strong via the written words. Like you and Terri πŸ˜ŠπŸ¦‹ .


  9. I notice you quote Richard Bach. “Illusions” was a fave of mine when I was young. As regards the rest of your quest to write and create, especially “Symphony” where you ask why we do what we do…There is no why, there just is. I’ll leave you with one of my favorite quotes, from George Balanchine. “I don’t want dancers who want to dance. I want dancers who have to dance.”


  10. Thanks for your response here and for your follow. You are most welcome.
    Richard Bach’s Ilkusion and Johnathan Livingston Seagull came to mean a lot to me and are still treasured.
    I really love your quote from George Balanchine and this kind of passion should be present in all creation.


  11. Hi Miriam, you are the third Miriam I found in this blog community. Thank you for visiting my post and comment. I browse through your November posts and like them very much. I’m doing a project this month. Hope to see more of you. Miriam


  12. Welcome here Miriam 😊, yes, between us three we represent three continents. I was delighted to see your likes on several posts, it is an honour.
    You will indeed see more of me and I wish you all the best with the new project.


  13. Natalie, I am happy to see you here and you are most welcome. Thank you for your lovely comment. I like your way of saying we share a “passion for poetry”. Passion is needed to create.
    You have a beautiful day to.


      • It was such a pleasure Miriam – I got completely lost in your words – almost felt as if I was there too. ‘On A Mountain’ reminded me so much of a place in Jamaica where I come from and I could so easily relate to all those feelings of awe, love and wonder. Bless you πŸ™‚

  14. Hi Miriam,

    I’ve been meaning to ask you if you’d like to submit a post to be featured in my series Family Histories. As I’ve told other participants, how you choose to define “family” and “histories” is totally up to you. Also, it’s an open invitation so if you need time to think about it, that’s fine. πŸ™‚

  17. Miriam, you don’t have a contact page. How to send my request for National poetry month celebration? Do you have a twitter account? You can contact me through my contact page to find out more. Thanks.
