This is my response to the Ragtag Daily Prompt — Contact.
After a few days of no telecommunications and internet access, I’ve finally made it back to civilization. However, I couldn’t have been happier in the internet wilds. The main reasons were that I was camping with my love and that I got to see some of my favourite birds, the Apostlebirds (Struthidea cinerea). Read more

Trigger Warning – this post contains content that may distress some readers.
This was not the post I was going to write for the Ragtag Daily Prompt – Purple. As I chose today’s RDP, I had a bit of a heads-up, but plans change. This post is about love, loss, grieving and wee birds. It’s not really about purple but there is one small, important connection to the Prompt word. Coincidentally, this post also fits the Word of the Day – Mellifluous. Read more

Our hotel room window overlooked an alley way and apartments. Every morning, a little canary in its cage was hung outside the window of the adjoining apartment. Read more
I might have suggested to a few people that I’ve done artworks (mosaics) of some Aussie birds and promised to post some photos of them. Lately though, I have been concentrating on dog mosaics, but I find myself returning to birds time and again. I have tremendous admiration for people who can photograph birds well, because I find it incredibly difficult to take a decent photo of my mosaics. They glitter and sparkle at all angles, hence it is virtually impossible to take a photo without being blinded by reflection. I love big bold colour, so I guess a little sparkle goes with the territory. Read more
