    Thanks for the reminder, Janet. I remember reading his book ‘The Hero with a Thousand Faces’ years back, a fabulous book for anybody (I was going to say for any writer, but… no) but thanks for the reminder. Very true that plans sometimes keep as tied to things that don’t make us happy. And thanks for the gorgeous hummingbirds!

        You are so welcome, I would like to invite you to take part in the 5 Photo, 5 Story challenge: each day post a photo attaching a story, poem or paragraph ( fiction or non-fiction) and each day invite another blogger to participate. Should you choose not to take part in this I will understand.

        Thank you so much for inviting me to do this, but I just did it a week or so ago and so will decline. Hope you are enjoying a lovely weekend. Janet. x
