taking a break…

13 March, 2015
Thank you for reading my clippings about “Being”. The chemo tiredness is cumulative so I will be taking a break from Clippings for a few weeks. I will be back on 20th March blogging at Pure Haiku where I and my guest haiku writers will be exploring the theme of Music…

An Explanation

6 January, 2015
Due to my chemotherapy treatment I have very limited access to the internet. I am getting to read and publish comments and answer a few emails only a couple of times a month. As I have two blogs, I am, for the time being, going to alternate between Pure Haiku and Dragonscale Clippings.
I am currently posting some rather windy haiku at Pure Haiku! (See the link to the right of this page – if the links are not showing, click on the dragonscales at the top of the page). I will return here to Dragonscale Clippings at the beginning of February.
Thank you for reading! And thank you all for your encouraging, inspiring comments – they are all treasured and read with much pleasure. Much love Freya xxx
