Blogophilia Week 32.13 – In Your Eyes

This is Ecrits Blogophilia Week 32 of our 13th year!!


In your eyes
The light the heat
In your eyes
I am complete
In your eyes
I see the doorway to a thousand churches
In your eyes
The resolution of all the fruitless searches
In your eyes
I see the light and the heat
In your eyes
Oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light
The heat I see in your eyes
~ “In Your Eyes” by Peter Gabriel

Important: If you did not already receive the news, Facebook is discontinuing the ability to post or edit Notes after October 31. We will be experimenting with new ways of posting our blogs, for now we will dual post here on FB and over at WordPress unless we find a better alternative.

We will maintain a presence here as a central “landing page” and continue to post a link here on the Marvin page & Blogophilia group to our blog on the alternate blogging site. You will also continue to post a link to your blog here on the Marvin page so we aren’t running all over the place searching for your blog. Please stay tuned and have patience with us, as we all work through this!!


Happy Indigenous Peoples Day, aka Columbus Day! Thank you for bearing with us as we find our way on WordPress. Christopher Mitchell rules the roost once more this week! Christine Wichman rakes the colorful fall leaves and boosts her way into second place! Stormy Gail Dormire is sitting pretty in third place as she settles in for a hot cup of apple cider to ward off the chill air! Lika Saliscente-Phipps is busy planning an autumn feast on this cool Sunday! Craig Fallon is slowly working his way up the leaderboard, just like a stealthy falcon! We are approaching the halfway point of the season as we wonder …. who will wear the jacket next week?

Last week’s topic was submitted by Tyler Myrth!!!
Christine Wichman calmly sipped the last of her chamomile, and the remaining tea leaves clued her in that it was Tyler posing the proverbial question ‘cats or dogs?’ They each scoop up a nifty 4 points!

Last week’s bonus suggestions were provided by Irene Melgoza and Michelle King!! They each receive 2 points for their contributions!!

Last week’s picture was submitted by Dahlia Ramone!!!
Christopher Mitchell and Craig Fallon recognized the pet lover behind the camera was none other than our dollface Dahlia! They tag her and all three pick up 3 points each as a result!

Martien’s secret picture bonus criteria was “Best Friends!!!”
Lissa Fallon and Michelle King took one look at the canine and feline duo and gleaned from the happy faces that these two were indeed best friends! They correctly nail the secret phrase and cash in with a handy little bonus of 4 points!

Thank you to the following Blogophilians who also picked up 3 additional points for submitting prompts: Lika, Dia, Christine, Irene, Craig, Lissa, Christopher, Tyler, Stormy, Colleen, Joleene, Doris & Dahlia! Well done – and we’re taking them until Saturday at midnight, so don’t delay!

Now, isn’t that lovely?


Ecrits Blogophilia Week 32.13 Topic: In Your Eyes

Hard Bonus (2 points): Incorporate song lyrics form the band Love And Rockets

Easy Bonus (1 Point): Mention a historical icon

PLEASE point out or highlight the bonuses within your blog content. It is so easy for us Martians to miss it completely!! And believe you us, we have missed these quite a few times!

Blogs must be submitted on or before Midnight (EST), Saturday, October 17, 2020. Please TAG Martien Ecrits by including his name within your blog content. In doing so, your blog will show up on his timeline. You may also post your blog link in the comment section below and/or post your blog link on the group “Ecrits Blogophilia” page.

**THE GUESSING GAME**Who and What do you guess on????
Guess who submitted the TOPIC – one guess permitted!
Guess who submitted the PICTURE – one guess permitted!!
The SECRET PICTURE WORD/PHRASE!! 10 guesses permitted!!

PICTURE PHRASE GUESSES CAN BE ANYTHING AT ALL, but remember you are limited to only TEN picture phrases guesses!! ALL GUESSES MUST BE LISTED ON YOUR BLOG in order to count for points.Correct guessing means earning extra points and is so much fun, especially if you’d like to wear our leather jacket!! (No guessing yourself AT ALL – you can’t get points that way!!!)

What are you waiting for? Start Writing!!!


That’s right, we need your ideas for topics, pictures and bonus point suggestions – score points now and in the future if we use one of your prompts!

Submit the following via Private Message to Martien Ecrits. Deadline to submit for extra points is Saturday, October 17 at MIDNIGHT EST. (You can always submit after the deadline, just no points will be added to your score). Please submit the following:

*   4 Topics 
* 4 Pictures (see note below)
* 6 Bonus Suggestions (song lyrics/titles, quotes, phrases, etc)

NOTE: Pictures should be either your own or public domain/non-copyright images in jpeg format only. You can search for images then click tools/usage rights/creative commons license. Examples of sites where you generally can find these are Flickr, Pexels, PXHERE, Pixabay,, Morgue Photo Free, Wikipedia Commons, etc. ALWAYS make sure they are able to be reused without attribution or that they are public domain or creative commons licensed.

- Please get creative, the idea is to have the prompts inspire your writing!
- Please DO NOT send in a prompt you previously submitted, as we still have it on file for possible use in upcoming blogs. We need fresh ideas. 🙂
- Please do not submit any pornographic/vulgar/overly suggestive photos or prompts, as we won't use or risk being reported or having account deleted!

      Congratulations on the jacket (also, happy that I don’t have to hyphenate that word anymore to prevent it from posting a different color with balloons and streamers – WP is a little more grown up than FB).

    And we are having to move and unpack again. Hoping WP remains more Blogger Friendly and this is the last time we all have to move.
