This photograph says everything that needs to be said about today’s weather.
After a couple of weeks of fiddling around, I have a bit of a blog subject schedule:
Sundays: Daydreaming and Creativity
Tuesdays: Citizenship and Society
Wednesdays: Faith and Church
Again, I can’t promise I’ll post every day going forward, but I have lots of ideas, so no blogging simply means I’m busy doing other purposeful things!
As always, I found the following links interesting and thought-provoking and posting them is not necessarily an endorsement or approval of their content.
