Blog restoration update


Taking on yourself too much

This morning I woke up with a feeling of dread knowing I finally had to face the daunting task of restoring 400 posts with each one containing one to eleven photos!
I kept talking myself into taking it by category or even by post so as not to get discouraged & procrastinate as a result…
I finally grabbed the sliver of courage I had by some miracle, held fast on to it and started tackling the last few posts of the poetry category & decided to go on working (for how long it takes) until it’s completed.
Then I decided that if 99% of the photos have vanished I might as well start from scratch & bring down the pixels to all of them & just maybe I will have saved myself the trouble to have to create a new oawritingspoemspaintings2!There is a silver lining after all 🙂

So, I cleaned up my media once again (!) to start afresh. All in all I was busy six hours on the blog & decided (when my head felt squeezed in a vise) to stop after giving you an update.

I’ll try my best to go on liking but if I don’t manage due to the long hours of work on this blog, my sincere apologies to all my supportive & faithful followers 🙂
I consider this as the Resurrection of my blog and its rebirth will be thanks to your patience. Once again a big thank you to you all!

By a morning 18th April 1990 ( English poem with French original text )

This poem I left intact since 1990 and was a result of holidays ending and
having to come back to the realities of chores and routine.

By a morning
—————–

Morning without garden
Sadness with no end
Painful awakening
With a misty heart

Experience acquired
Of a unprecedented sojourn
Paradise Island
Of infinite paths

Free of the conscious
That flew in the fields
Madness in the winds
Lived in the moment

End of a morning
Sadness without garden
Foggy awakening
Of a painful heart

Par un matin
—————–

Matin sans jardin
Tristesse sans fin
RĂ©veil douloureux
Au cœur brumeux

Expérience acquise
D’un séjour inouï
Ile du paradis
Aux sentiers infinis

Libre du conscient
Envolé dans les champs
Folie dans les vents
VĂ©cu au moment

Fin d’un matin
Tristesse sans jardin
RĂ©veil brumeux
Au cœur douloureux
