Launched May 1st, 2009 with a tentative start... this blog evolved into a space to bring things I'm curious about or fascinated with whilst adapting to life in a new city, a new direction with my work and in the online realm. Early on postings were frequent and wide-ranging in focus. Attention slowly spread to new online engagements as ideas developed and formats trialled to extend those ideas. However, this blog has always remained at the centre of all that followed ...the conversations, journeys and glimpses into creative worlds generated here have long enriched my days beyond all imagining and I return always to pick up the thread with gratitude for the experience and for those who've passed through, perhaps joined up or stopped to converse!

staying connected when in transit...

I know many of you are mobile, quite frequently...  savvy with i-phones and have travel blogging down pat. I had a mobile for two days on arrival in the UK ...but then it hasn't worked since Cornwall. So I lost interest and kept at my laptop for communications but now thats not doable...so this is a quick post to say that I may not be blogging much over the next few weeks. No Wifi at the current base so no laptop ... although the library is very accessible ... but not having been a PC-user these past few years I'm definitely a little rusty and shocked to remember how different things are between  pc's and macs!

I've set up a small temporary studio here which is excellent for my purposes. Pop over to the homage blog for more info on where I'm staying and what I'm up to here.... I've taken lots of photos but as I can't use my laptop I've not worked out how to connect photos to blogs yet.ont have a lot of time really ... thats the point... on to painting and such!  Keeping up with emails is now ten times as complicated... dont ask... I told you I was inept on PC's!

My apologies to all the lovely bloggers who pop in...i'm failing to return the visits at the minute... I will be back and miss you all!


The gardens near the Mansion on site where I'm presently staying!
This photo was found here... with other photos you might want to see. I will get to post my own photos soon I'm sure... bye for now,
Sophie

I'm sure you're having a blast! I know just what you mean about not grasping PCs (I've SEEN a PC ..... but didn't dare touch it... I thought it would probably explode..... they're touchy little buggers!!!!) I've only used macs and apple products so I'm totally baffled by non-apple things....

almost as baffling is the whole mobile blogging thing..... there IS a useful little blogger app now available at i-tunes - and I found this helpful to blog from my i-phone..... but its nowhere near as comprehensive or easy as a desktop/laptop.

I'll wait for when you reach a spot where you can catch us up on all the good things you've been seeing and doing - have fun!

We understand Sophia thanks for the article I just started a mosaic blog I am trying to find similar blogs to comment on and leave my link. This was my sons suggestion and he did not say it would be this difficult lol. Well if you have a moment please give me a visit.

Hello all you lovely people.
Great to read your comments and thanks for the messages ... its cheering indeed.
Been working flat out all day ...studio desk and library. Pulled out so many books i'd like to read if only i could drink it all in somehow.
Lunch was in the Gardens restaurant... being Sunday, autumnal and grey I thought a wonder over to a hot lunch would be good and it was pleasant... old english style food!
Sun was out so itr was quite cheeriong even though the whole weekend passed in a working blur!
