Cellpic Sunday: Jenny

I took this picture yesterday evening. Poet Jenny Lewis is an old friend; we met in Hawthornden Writers Retreat back in 2012. Last night, Jenny and I had dinner in Chiang Mai on High Street, then walked around a very quiet section of Oxford, around old courtyards bursting with spring flowers. It was 8 p.m., the light was otherworldly. Jenny knew her way; we walked down one twisted lane after another, me following. I hung back to take a quick picture.

Thursday Trios: Oxford, May 2022

Posting for Mama Cormier’s Thursday Trios (even though it is Friday, ha!)

Self is in Oxford. It is raining today, here’s a picture of the cloudy skies and three antennas (?) on a long pole:

Her first meal in Oxford was this, at The Chester Arms on Chester Street. It was delicious!

There were three boats on the River Thames (almost the end-of-term, there are a lot of crew competitions going on):

Citysonnet April Colors and Letters Challenge

Today, Monday, April 18, the challenge is a color: PASTEL VIOLET

Self is feeling nostalgic over her garden. Here are some flowers – matilija poppy and osteospermum — that were blooming in her garden, a month ago:

One Word Sunday: EGG


Paul brought a bunch of chocolates for the residents this morning.

I snagged this lovely prize, which put me in mind of Travel with Intent’s One Word Sunday prompt for today: EGG.

These, btw, are NOT Nestlé product. Checked the fine print just to make sure.

Silent Sunday, 3 April 2022

Silent Sunday for Jez Braithwaite

Weekend Sky: Philadelphia from 34 Floors Up

Check out some gorgeous skies on Hammad’s Weekend Sky Challenge!

This view of Philadelphia faces the Delaware River and the Ben Franklin bridge. New Jersey is just on the other side.

Cellpic Sunday: Stanford

This is self’s first’ share ever for Journeys with Johnbo’s Cellpic Sunday Challenge.

Today she was back on the Stanford campus. She dropped by the Anderson Collection (which she loves visiting, not least because of its setting, facing a grove of old oak trees).

Hard to believe this is the very heart of the campus.

It was a gorgeous Sunday afternoon. People were out jogging, biking, strolling.

Water, Water Everywhere (WWE): After the Storm

The WWE Challenge, hosted by Jez, is a lot of fun to join. Have a look at his gallery today.

Several months ago, the Bay Area was socked by a heavy storm. Her porch was flooded.

Thursday Trios at the Century 20

Thank you to Mama Cormier for hosting the Thursday Trios Challenge.

Self just saw Death on the Nile in her local Century 20 (Very enjoyable movie, she liked it much better than Knives Out). Century 20 is one of her favorite places; she’s there practically every week.
