A few weeks ago, Hugh of Hugh’s Views & News published a post about why he removed the button. Please read his post to receive the complete message.

Mucking Out

Hi, friends. For quite a while, I have been watching the number that shows the already used GB. The distance until I reached my limit already got pretty narrow. So, I had the choice between upgrading or limiting my media library. I decided to go for the second option, although it was the one that was pretty time-consuming.

Jagged Feathers – @jansikes3 #NewRelease #RomanticSuspense #WhiteRuneSeries

Instead of my usual Monday post, I decided to leave this spot to Jan today for introducing her latest book Jagged Feathers. Jan and I have been following each other for quite some time. I became aware of her blog through a friend who reblogged her tarot readings each week. Meanwhile, I don’t want to miss her and her inspirations like meditations, readings, presentations of healing stones, and lots more but also because she is an incredible and lovely person. The more I feel honored to welcome her on my blog today. So grab a cup of tea, hot chocolate, or coffee. I pass the scepter to Jan. Dear sister, my blog is all yours…

A General Request

Hello friends. You know how much I love supporting the wonderful people in this blogosphere. That’s why I love sharing their inspiring words that come from interaction. As you may know, I don’t post any statements without the permission of the person who made them. So far, I have trusted that such permission also confirms that the words actually came from that person. In the past, bloggers have alerted me when that wasn’t the case. But this week, unfortunately, it did not work. It can get me in trouble, but also the person in question, if a quote is not properly acknowledged. From now on, I will also research every statement myself to be sure.

Meeting a Blogger Friend

View towards the Kurfirsten and Lake Walen in the background.

After almost four years, it was yesterday again that I met a blogger friend of WordPress. Erika and I (this is not a mistake, we both are Erikas) have been following each other for about five years. After a while, we found out that we live almost around the corner from each other. So, yesterday we made it happen. It took me only 25 minutes to reach Erika Laufer of Lauferei.com in her beautiful Swiss village close to Lake Walen.

What The Soul Leaves Behind Will Remain

AZQuotes.com

When I was thinking about what I could write, I was distracted by a junk-email. While deleting it, my view went over the many folders of my inbox. One of those holds some very precious emails of a blogger who became a dear friend on WordPress. It was touching and deeply moving to read those emails again after 5 years.

Flying ’round the globe

For meeting blogger buddies

Who’s going to come?

 

Many did sign up

But only three did make it

Phew… I’m not alone!

 

A lovely circle

Poetry meets recipe

What a combination

 

Laughter and good food

Making friends, sharing stories

Thankful I was there

 

When we left it rained

Thanks to Marci, I stayed dry

She drove me back home

 

Flying ’round the globe

Meeting two friends for dinner

It was all worth it!

Thank you for the nice evening, Marci of WhatsForDinnerMoms.com and Syl of Syl65. It was great, meeting you both in person. And last but not least: Thank you so much to Lisa of LifeOfAnElPasoWoman for organizing this all.

The Magic of Connection

We are connecting with each other in various ways daily. More consciously in our jobs, with family or friends, and more unconsciously in the bus, in the supermarket,… But there is something that happens beyond a visible or physical connection. There is something we feel before the first word is said, often even before the first eye contact. It is the radiation we feel about each other. That first impression. It may not give us a clear picture – because how we perceive a person says more about ourselves than about them – but it is very important for the way that encounter continues. It is like extending invisible tentacles in order to scan the other person.

Melrose Plantation – Natchitoches, Louisiana

Yesterday, my dear host Linda, took her mom, Phyllis of Anchors and Butterflies, and me further to the south of Louisiana where we visited the Melrose Plantation. It was another beautiful day. The weather was gorgeous and so was the company!
