It looks as if we're going to have a bit of slightly warmer weather, and no snow for a few days. I was out taking pictures today and I saw snow falling from the trees as it melted. It was lovely. One hopes the even temporary easing of winter will bring a bit of hopeful activity to mind and heart. One wants to believe the long cold will end and Spring will herald a new lightness of Spirit. There's Always Hope.
Now that I'm finished with the philosophizing, let's get on, shall we?
Our winner this week is Patricia Purvis with The Fifth Victim: The Ripper murders have long been a subject of interest for me. There's a feeling in this that's both clinical and sad. Thank you.
Also winning this week is Antonia Woodville with Infinity 89: Lovely use of the prompts. I'm always amused by the Captain's musings on food. I'm becoming more and more curious about the beast. Can't wait to read more! Thank you.
