All posts for the month November, 2013

Announcement

Published November 25, 2013 by Libby

You may have noticed that something seems to have gone haywire with the way this blog displays. I don’t know if the theme has been updated and something has got broken along the way but I can’t fix it so if it doesn’t sort itself out in a day or two I will change the blog theme. Meanwhile I apologise for any inconvenience.

Addendum:
Panic over, the problem has now been fixed thanks to the wordpress help pages. It seems a stray piece of html code had found its way into one of the posts – this has now been severely dealt with!

Respectfully

then and
now, in war
rarely in peacetime, brave
protectors

protectors
of choices
the ability to
make, break and shake
laws

strong
brave, true
just, and willing
to spill blood for
freedom

guide singular vision
to global expanding populations

people
some strong
some weak – still
need protecting from tyrants –

JulesPaige submitted this ‘Elfje Quint’ on Veteran’s Day (UK Armistice Day) 11th November but I had already posted an Elfje for that day so a little late, but still in our memories, I offer it here. The Elfje series first appeared on one of Jules’ blogs. The six pieces were to prompts and are all about one photograph. Follow the link to see the original post. http://juleslongerstrandsofgems.wordpress.com/2013/10/25/addition-miz-q-the-final-of-6-of-a-series-of-newsy-prompts/
