Blogophilia Week 10.14 – No Promises

This is Ecrits Blogophilia Week 10 of our 14th year!

Stars die in the silence
Of arabian nights
Wind washes the seasons
In these days of a golden age

Life in your new world
Turning round and round
Making some sense
Where there’s no sense at all

No promises
But if you should fall…

“No Promises” ~ Icehouse

ATTENTION BLOGGERS: PLEASE continue to post the link to your blog on either the Facebook Martien Ecrits timeline or the Ecrits Blogophilia group!!!!!! Thanks for your cooperation!



Week 9.14

It’s that time of year where everyone is enjoying the sunshine and outdoors! Christine Wichman reigns supreme once again, holding onto the coveted virtual jacket for another week! But Christopher Mitchell is gaining on her, and holding down second place! Dia Jade keeps on trucking in her quest to reclaim the leather! Irene Melgoza is hoping that her haikus will yield a phrase that will propel her to the top! Four weeks to go in the season, so put those thinking caps on to channel your guesses! This leaves one question … who will wear the jacket next week?

Last week’s topic was submitted by Tyler Myrth!!
“Ah, this is the life,” thought Tyler as he sat in the sun by the water, sipping his glass of Malbec! His shades reflected the bright sunshine, obstructing a clear view of his face, and he hits the jackpot of 6 points!

Last week’s bonus suggestions were provided by Elaine Chaix and Stormy Gail Dormire!! They each receive 2 points for their contributions!!

Last week’s picture was submitted by Rebecca Revels!!
The straw hat shielded Rebecca’s face as she navigated the water, and nobody recognized that she was the mystery fisherwoman behind this week’s picture! For her stealth, she takes home a whopping 6 points!

Marvin’s secret picture bonus criteria was “calm water!!”
Christopher Mitchell and Michelle King meditated as they gazed at the gentle river, inspired by the serenity. The correct phrase popped into their heads, and as a result, they each collect a nifty 4 points, with Christopher getting an additional point for including the phrase in his blog content!

Now, isn’t that lovely??
