Goodbye my Friend.

This morning Gilly messaged me with the news of Christine's passing. As I went to her blog to read Stuart's post I was not surprised to find the tears rolling down my cheeks. Friendships come to us so unexpectedly at times. We might be sitting in a Chinese restaurant when it walks in, in the… Continue reading Goodbye my Friend.

Share Your World – 2014 Week 18

What object do you always have with you when traveling and why? Why...because it has become another limb. What subject would you like to study in depth, if given the time to do so?  Mythology. So I can invent my own a little better. Which would you prefer:  a wild, turbulent life filled with joy,… Continue reading Share Your World – 2014 Week 18

Share Your World – 2014 Week 12

I thought it might be fun to play along with Cee's Share Your World this week after seeing Gemma's post, so here goes. What is your most favorite smell/scent? That is hard because it changes. I love the smell of Chevvy's belly, and Charlie and Jack's. Coffee always makes me feel good, but so does… Continue reading Share Your World – 2014 Week 12

I’m baaaaccccckkkkkkk…well maybe !

As you all know I have had some rather impressive computer problems in the last while. Crashes, technical issues and of course then having them stolen. Life sure does have its moments. Such as the insurance company taking two months and thirteen days to come to the party. What you didn't know is that while… Continue reading I’m baaaaccccckkkkkkk…well maybe !

2012 connected me to some VERY interesting places…

Yes I finally found my review from WP. I like this part... About 55,000 tourists visit Liechtenstein every year. This blog was viewed about 260,000 times in 2012. If it were Liechtenstein, it would take about 5 years for that many people to see it. Your blog had more visits than a small country in… Continue reading 2012 connected me to some VERY interesting places…

tis the season…

I have found in the time I have been blogging that the community that exists is special in so many areas. It's informative, fun, passionate, BUT the most important quality I have found in it is that is is supportive. At times I have been asked: Isn't it time consuming ? How can you ever… Continue reading tis the season…

Titles suck – I hate having to think them up !!!

The title in truth has absolutely nothing to do with this post. But after having spent ten minutes trying to think one up...well, that's what I think of titles. Today at some point little old Chronicles of Illusions will pass the 300,000 hit mark. That's me being very presumptuous and going on the usual number… Continue reading Titles suck – I hate having to think them up !!!

Kindness need not apply if you’re overweight apparently…

My last post [What happened to being kind to one another ??] was written because I saw what was to me an unjustifiable attack on someone because of her weight. As your replies rolled in I began to ponder whether or not my post was also a form of bullying. In essence I too was… Continue reading Kindness need not apply if you’re overweight apparently…

What happened to being kind to one another ??

Recently I came across something that disturbed me. In my travels on the web I saw a photo that had been put up on a blog - of a woman. Well a woman's behind actually. When I first saw it I thought 'WOW', how cool. A celebration of this gorgeous piece of female form. Now… Continue reading What happened to being kind to one another ??
