My family, especially my daughters Libby and Mandy
My job
being by the sea
walking in the country
dancing in the rain
music
reading
writing (wouldn't be here if I didn't)
being with friends
dark nights by the fire with a good book and wine
long soaks in the bath
the wind through a windchime
the sun on my face
all wildlife

Hates
nothing but a few things irritate not worth mentioning


Has had to re-invent myself following the death of my husband 2 years ago and I've learned that I am a stronger person than I thought and that true friends stand by you when others walk away.

I have had to learn to do things by myself and I've made solo journeys, surprised how happy and content I can be with my own company.

My philosophy - CARPA DEUM (seize the day) - for there may never be a tomorrow

New comp 'Seasons of Mist' posted

Thankyou to all who entered my last competition, I really enjoyed reading all your entries.

Autumn is well and truly upon us and it is my favourite time of year.  Cosy nights in with a good book (or partner), glass of wine and a roaring fire, weekend walks in countryside ablaze with a tapestry of colour. The change of nature giving us inspiration once more.

My new contest is for poems on Autumn and what it means to you and I look forward to reading some exquisite pieces of work.

Once again I ask that you don't put names on your entries as I like to judge blind to be fair to everyone regardless of experience, and whether you are new to the soup or an old hand like myself.

I hope you will all give my comp a shot and check out my own poem 'An Autumn Day'.

Luv to all

Janette

    As the temperature here is about 85F I will draw on memory of other places. Autumn is my fav, also.
