Storytelling Starters ~ Train-world dreaming

Saturday, February 20th, 2016

R01Yesterday I spent a good part of the day on a train coming down to Wales. The reason for my trip? I’ve been invited to a 100th birthday celebration lunch. The person who has reached such a wonderful age lived with her family at the end of my street when I was growing up. Her husband ran the chemist’s shop on the corner. We children played with her children.

On the train, I was reminded of a piece of writing I did recently – not about birthdays but about being on trains. I don’t know if you find the same kind of thing when you’re on a train (and I think it’s not the same on buses or planes or in cars). My mind goes into itself.

Happy New Year! Blwyddyn Newydd Dda!

 Here’s one of my favourite photos from 2012.

It’s just a photo of water – but water full of colourful reflections and beautiful patterns. 

It comes with my very best wishes for 2013.

May you have the best of health.

And the best of friendship, new stories and prospects.

See you then.
