This week’s prompt photo has a really fun feel to it. I am so pleased to have had so many creative responses from you all. Do have a read through them, they are fabulous.

I type and puff and moan and sigh The creative well is running dry Get up and leave the desk behind It definitely must be cuppa time
Return to find someone in the chair A little person who was not left there He types and clicks and giggles with glee Oh what I’d give to go back to being three
This little chap will do anything to get his sticky little paws on the keyboard, to him the computer is a magical world of CBeebies, youtube and family video calls. Working on PC’s all day I often forgot to do something joyous on them, yet the energetic glee of a toddler will soon remind you, the world is a magical place.
A bit of fun this week. This week is (supposed to be) my company’s return to the office. Most staff had agreed on some form of hybrid working, which seems to strike a better work-life balance for most.
What does office mean to you?

I stand on the precipice My eyes gazing out My future’s mapped out Yet I have my doubts
To stand where it’s steady Or to take that leap Never quite knowing What’s under one’s feet
For visually challenged writers, the image shows a high area of rock with a very steep side beside the coast. The cliff has a grassy top. The sea can be seen further out.
This lovely Cliff Edge was taken at the seaside town of Bridlington. I was amazed that you could get so close to the edge here, it’s actually steeper in places than the image perhaps looks. It was a beautiful day but the wind was blustery and you did feel it could lift you off at any moment.
What an astonishing week for entries, my little shot of a stroll by the sea seems to have inspired you all, and what marvellous creative pieces you have all made. Thank you all for your continued support. I have tried to reblog a few since the post went out so hopefully, you will have seen some of them trickling through, but here is the list below (if I have missed anyone, please let me know). It makes for fantastic reading.
I always feel it’s like stepping through from one world to the next.
This photo was taken in spring, quite early in the morning, one of those moments when the world feels totally at peace.
For visually challenged writers, the image shows a stone archway, through which a pond and some steps are visible.

This week’s prompt photo has a really fun feel to it. I am so pleased to have had so many creative A great big thank you to Alethea for agreeing to be the featured photo this month. What a beautiful photo for us. Pop over to her blog at https://aletheakehas.com/ to show her some love!
Here’s what Alethea had to say:
Alethea Kehas blogs at “The Light Behind the Story.” She is also a yoga instructor and the author of the middle-grade visionary fiction book, The Labyrinth, and a memoir, A Girl Named Truth. Several years ago, while watching her son play baseball, her eyes were drawn towards the sky where she found a beautiful feathered cloud in the colors of a rainbow. It was one of those lucky moments captured by a camera.

I’ve had so many wonderful responses and enjoyed each and every one. I have tried to reblog a few since the post went out so hopefully, you will have seen some of them trickling through, but here is the list below (if I have missed anyone, please let me know). It makes for fantastic reading.
Sometimes there is treasure Sometimes there is sand It always brings me pleasure Stepping off of land
Diving ever deeper Below those ocean waves The escape getting steeper Feeling very brave
Watching all the fish Darting to and fro Looking for that swish Of their tails as they go
Mesmerizing beauties I worship them as I gaze To the sea we have a duty To protect what lies below the waves
There’s nothing wrong with enjoying looking at the surface of the ocean itself, except that when you finally see what goes on underwater, you realize that you’ve been missing the whole point of the ocean.
― Dave Barry
I tried diving a few years ago and absolutely loved it. It’s always something I wanted to go back to do again when time allowed. I am also very lucky to have once snorkelled in the Bahamas. It truly was amazing to see the coral reef, it was teeming with fish that were so friendly and inquisitive. We also saw a beautiful sea turtle. It was mesmerising.
What brilliant subsea responses this week. I have tried to reblog a few since the post went out so hopefully, you will have seen some of them trickling through, but here is the list below (if I have missed anyone, please let me know). Hope you all enjoyed this fishy adventure.
