Still Life, Love and Food

I just re-read yesterday's post. It sounds like it was written by an emotional adolescent - right down to the requisite spelling and grammar errors. Yikes!  I shouldn't be surprised.  I was an emotional adolescent when I first tried to express my concerns about such issues - some day I'll tell you about my ill-named and short-lived Pollution Club.  I'm going to claim that yesterday's post was a flashback to those days.  

If you'd like to experience complex topics handled in a skillful fashion I suggest you head over to Life, Love and Food and still life where writers Rose-Ann and Ammie are creating a series of tandem posts.   Each week they choose a topic to write about on their blogs. So far they've tackled: cooking without recipes, long-distance friendships, gender and science.  These eloquent writers have dealt with each topic beautifully.  Their thoughtful posts move me and encourage me to look at the world in new ways.  I aspire to write like this, and if I ever think I'm getting close to their level of competence I'm going to invite myself to play along. 

Strike another item off the yellow list...


  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    How long ago did you leave Windsor? I love this city. I moved to Toronto for about a year and a half after I graduated from university and was more than happy to move home when my husband landed a job here.

  2. It's good to let that inner adolescent out sometimes!

    I left Windsor about 15 years ago. Sometimes I find that hard to believe. It doesn't feel like it's been that long, as my family is still in that area and I get regular updates. It's like I have two homes, one here on the Island, and one there in Windsor.

    @ Meghan
    It's not that I'm letting my inner adolescent out; she just tends to escape from time to time. Nya nya nya nya nya!

  4. I'm not sure how much revision it got, but the version of that post I read was very good!

    And thank you for the kind words about the tandem posting project! I can't wait to see what happens when you decide to join us for some writing.

  5. You are most welcome Rosiecat. And thank you too!
