it's suddenly dawned on me that it's nearly a year since i began this lark...storytelling in fluffy space...and so i thought i'd celebrate by giving someone else a present.
there's a catch though...first you'll have to read some pearls [possibly of wisdom] and then you'll have to contribute a few of your own.
post a pearl in the comments and on January 14th [South Australian time....so that'll be the 13th for you Statesiders] Martha-muu will help me to pick a lucky-dip winner from the hat [felt, of course]
i'll then post the name of the winner, who will have to supply me with their postal address so that i can send them an eco-print surprise... a present from the Prophet of Bloom.
so here goes
"never chase men or trams...there'll be another along in five minutes" - Grandma
"a little dirt never hurt anybody and besides, it keeps you warm" - my favourite Auntie
"a little of what you fancy does you good" - British actress Joan Collins [i apply this theory to chocolate although i suspect Ms Collins applies it to other amusements as well]
"i'd rather dye regretting something i've done than something i hadn't done" - my youngest child [then aged 14 and still a fount of wisdom]
"save the planet, it's the only one with chocolate" - some bright but nameless soul
"knowledge is the realisation the tomato is a fruit. wisdom is not putting it in the fruit salad" - my son
"a change is as good as a feast" - me
so there you are...and now it's your turn. post me your pearls in the comments and who knows, you may find yourself the lucky dip winner of an eco-printed textile object...which i'll be making this coming weekend...
