Camping

    Interesting image ! Loved the words too ... PS : Is it March already at your part of the world ??
    1. Colin Stewart said on February 28, 2011
      No, not March yet, but I am trying to stay about a half a day ahead so those who wish to participate ina a timely manner in their locality may.

      By the way, the two kids climbing on that log are mine. :-)

    Thanks for the invite, Terri. I will try to attend, most likely off and on this month. I will be without Internet access off and on and have a novel to rewrite (and I've been postponing the for months).

      No worries! Any visit is a gift.

    Are the details about the same as SIS's challenge and are we going to link up? Will you be providing the prompts each day? Maybe you should give up a week at a time because some prompts take longer to compose. I love these challenges but I am a NANOWRIMO and I have Nanoedmo the month of March. I would like to do both.
    1. Colin Stewart said on February 28, 2011
      The details are here: http://cloakedmonk.com/march-challenge/ with the list of ALL the prompts for March. I am not clever with the linky thingy so I am going to rely on the comments sections to carry us through.

    Okay! Let's play. Thanks for the link. I wish you well with your challenge, but I do not envy all the work you now face. Good luck. http://thepoetsquill.wordpress.com/2011/02/28/cloaked-monk%E2%80%99s-marchchallenge-march-1/
    1. Colin Stewart said on February 28, 2011
      Well, I'm not as clever as Someone is Special is with the linky thing. So maybe it will streamline itself? Aah. I also have spring break coming! Woot!

    Gonna submit something at 12am so it will be March 1st! Cool, another chance to write more Haiku, thanks!
    1. Colin Stewart said on February 28, 2011
      Yay! I'm not as clever with the linky things, so I'm just going to use the comments. I look forward to hearing from you.

    Camping in the forest, close to the ocean, watching the elk herd meander along, waiting for the fog to lift, enjoying the excitement and awe of your children, wide eyed and ready for new adventures, waking early to make pancakes, all the while giving thanks for all. On other adventures up in the Sequoias, camping out with only tiny spaces exposed for the stars to squeeze through, hiking along old trails where Indians have trod for centuries, examining flora and fauna, giving thanks for all.
    1. Colin Stewart said on February 28, 2011
      I see a theme of gratefulness. I agree!
    2. ladynimue said on March 1, 2011
