Oh.

Some of you will remember that a little while ago Ginne and Marcie of Vision and Verb invited me to do a guest post.  You will also remember that I was flabber and ghasted. 

I am now gob and smacked.  Ginnie and Marcie have invited me to join the collaborators at Vison and Verb and post with them every three weeks.   The women 'at the table' bring an incredible range of talent and experience and I am honoured to be asked to join them.

    You're going to have a great time at Vision and Verb, I'm sure.
    So now you're a gob-smacked flabbergast?

    1. River: That sounds about right. And if I get too comfortable I can become a flabberghasted gob-smack.

  20. Major Pettigrew sent me! I've seen you around blogs we both read, but today I was inspired by the above gentleman to pay a visit! I do not agree that you are not a creator of beauty. The way you deal with your illness and the hand life has dealt you is, I am sure, an inspiration to everyone you meet.

  25. Dear EC, as Linda said, "I am neither flabbered nor ghasted" at their inviting you to be one of the writers. Nor am I "gobbed" and "smacked"!!! You are a fine writer and your subject matter always pulls me into your posting. Congratulations!!!! Peace.

    2. Dee: Red faced and shuffling feet here. I don't feel I deserve such flattery, but it is very nice just the same. My first regular post with Vision and Verb is 30th September your time, and some time on the 1st in the southern hemisphere.

  26. Just checked out their blog... that's brilliant news, EC! Well done. :)

  27. Your positive attitude is so inspiring. I really give you credit for doing so much as you do, helping others as you do, while there are so many out there who choose not to. You've always been an inspiration to me, and yet we only know one another through this blogosphere, I am honored to have met you. Your photos, your stories, all told with heart. Thank you for sharing this. And like Dee said, please let us know when you'll be posting again. :)

    1. Deb: Thank you so much. I think that remaining positive is better for me, both physically and emotionally. Negative emotions use energy I really don't have to spare.

    1. Strayer: I am glad you found the link. Famous? No. And I don't think I am equipped to cope with fame anyway. Grateful? Oh yes. My special talent of appreciation gets a work out at Vison and Verb. Thank you for your kind, kind words.

  33. Not creative, you say in your last guest post over there? This woman who is such an amazing writer and who posts such beautiful photos that linger in the mind long after the computer is shut? If my brain were working today, I'd have a snappy reply to that. However, though I may not be feeling witty or snappy, I am lucid enough to know that you should not be gobbed or anything else. You're a wonderful writer.
