What I woke up to at just after 6:00 am last week: incredible Maxfield Parrish blues cast by a mystical mist . . .

The same amazing foggy morning, at about 8:00 or so (this is looking toward downtown – the buildings aren’t even visible); how I miss the coast and the lovely fogs and foghorns hooting their warnings!

Sorry I’ve been away for so long; I’m writing a post about some of it, but have hardly been upstairs in the last three weeks. When I was, I have to confess I’ve gone back to playing ‘Blitz’ on Facebook as a de-stressor. I know, I could have been writing and posting . . .

so, in the meantime . . . I’ve been learning about Transition Towns and thought you permies out there might get something out of these links. (unless, of course, you’re way ahead of me) πŸ˜‰

Hope that’s enough to keep you busy for a bit . . .

I’m at Mum’s this week, but with lots still to do to get ready for having the ceilings re-done. Still, I should have time for a post or two, to keep your FeedReaders happy at least . . . ~ Linne

  1. I am back again! πŸ˜‰ Transition towns are a great idea…community is even better. Here in Tassie Transition towns has been hijacked by people who are a bit strange. I don’t mind a few incense wafting hippies and the odd scarf waving in the breeze but when I went to the transition town meeting in Launceston, I came away dazed and confused with all of the fairies and mystical light and wand waving. Sorry, I like facts first and THEN the smoke and mirrors πŸ˜‰

  2. Nothing like the wonderful seclusion of a nice old heavy fog is there? The photos are gorgeous. πŸ™‚
    You’ve been missed on your blog by this little hippy but I completely understand we all need down time sometimes. And nothing wrong with a computer game (or 3) to destress and turn the brain-box off.
    Hugs from steamy rainy Victoria (Southern Hemisphere) and the 3 PSP’s. πŸ™‚

  3. Beautiful pictures of fog…quiet morning of foggy views…perfect:-) I had never heard of transition towns, I will be reading your information on this term…thank you for posting the information-robbie

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I look forward to reading your comments. ~ Linne
