Let’s beat cancer sooner… My Event Tomorrow

Your spirit,
Restrained to a mere particle,
a fleck in my eyes.
One blink, and you’re gone…

craft pics.pngDoing the final preparations for my local Christmas Fair tomorrow.  Into 2018 I will be sponsored for creating crafts for events and private orders.  Looking forward to tomorrow! Here’s hoping we raise a lot of money.  Thank you to all business and generous people who have donated so far.
Above is just a fraction of the things I have been working on for this fair, and moving forward, to raise money for Cancer sufferers everywhere.  Please support me.

Please be generous, work your magic for cancer sufferers everywhere…

And I hope you all have a very happy holiday!

A brighter future from you and Cancer Research – fundraising – For the moment it does require you to give your details but it is safe. I am working on a more streamlined alternative option. Meanwhile, bear with it – every little bit helps – even the price of your next coffee?

In aid of CR

Hi.  Periodically, I will be calling on friends here and the writing community at WordPress for your support and ask that you either simply text BGON64 to 70070 (for those here in the UK) and donate a small amount or use my donation button below (any country) to give whatever you can (even your next cuppa) to help us at Cancer Research and Breast Cancer Research.  As a breast cancer survivor, I can sincerely say that your help is more than appreciated.

Cancer Research is not government funded and is responsible for a high percentage of the major breakthroughs we have seen to date.  Without you and me, those breakthroughs will not happen.  So don’t let this being UK based put you off donating. Regardless of your country, your generosity will one day give the gift of life to the world.

The Just Giving page is verification and will also tell you all about my own reasons and action plan for the foreseeable future.

Thank  you very much!

A Silent Flower ~ Cinquain

A little bit of hope was kept alive in Aleppo where a man tended a garden to give people hope of a future with his plants.  I read an article about him and his son who worked with him.  People would buy plants to plant on roundabouts etc to inspire rebuilding and regeneration. A short time later he was killed near the gardens and his son is alone now.

I have quoted his father’s words and embellished a little.  I urge once more, if ever you can help in these ongoing situations, please do.  The world is our family and we need to help each other more.

I don’t need to go far these days without meeting tragedy head on.  Today we suffered a blow here in the UK, but will carry on as the rest of the world is doing.  Sometimes, we have only to look to someone’s generosity and spirit, despite their tragic existence, to realise we are still very, very lucky.

A Silent Flower

Nourish
the heart and soul
keep peace within all life –
the essence of the world lies in
flowers

 

Black Friday 1910 – The Suffragettes

For trE’s One line Poem: History

It drizzled that day fogged with somber gloom, which fell on the marchers’ cold stones for blankets wet with the fumes of advancement in industry where none welcomed theirs; inherent equality was trampled to death as sisters of the broken and the downtrodden were maimed or died on the wrought iron sprawl, coated black underneath a bloodied Black Friday brawl.
