Pic and a Word #283: Layers of blogging

Patrick is back with his challenge and it’s high time I wrote another poem.

Layers of blogging

My blog is my home. 
No, it’s neater than that.
And there have been more blogs
in my lifetime
than homes.

My blog is my reason to be,
my job,
my diary,
a mark of the passing of time,
evidence of existence.

It is where I get trip tips
and couch trips,
words of advice,


to the like-minded.

of love.

As for photos, just a few from our Thursday trip to Val d’Elsa near Siena on the way to San Gimignano, where you can stroll by the Elsa river and marvel at its changing colour and surrounding layers. And now we’re off to another trip. Just right too since we don’t have running water. Again. And that, my friends, is not a fun way to be.

In response to Patrick Jennings’ Pic and a Word Challenge #283: Layers

This day in my blogging history

A Slovenian in Italy for love. Blogger, photographer, translator and would-be writer who would be a writer if she wrote. Plus reluctant but emerging poet. Beware.

      1. An excellent place to be. I’ve always written with a sense of purpose larger than myself.

        The most difficult lesson to learn? Check my ego at the door before even touching a keyboard. It’s about the words. Not me. 🙂

  1. It is definitely time for you to write more poetry – always. And this one is perfect. Thank you for validating my own blogginess. And what gorgeous photos and now I know what you mean when you say “marvel at its changing colour.” I am sorry there is no water and I hope you have water now, or at least news about it now because they were not giving you a timeline before.

    1. Thank you, Crystal! I’m glad you like it. It’s why we do what we do, and we’re doing it right. I do hope our water situation remains stable now. As you know not many of us live in our condominium permanently and since we have our own water, I often wonder about its quality control. And now a pipe broke and I was afraid that the reservoir would run dry. But it’s back to normal now. I hope they fixed it and it will last.
