Suggestions for Entries - Week 2

About Reflections on Literature, Life and the Imagination

Previous Entry Suggestions for Entries - Week 2 Aug. 8th, 2008 @ 10:55 pm Next Entry
As promised here are a few suggestions for those having difficulty getting started in their entries this week.
First year: Write a letter in the voice of Henry Lawson telling Mary Fortune ("Waif Wanderer") what you think about her description of the Australian Bush.

Second year: Write a letter in the voice of Siegfried Sassoon telling May Wedderburn Cannan what you think about her poem "Rouen".

Third year: Write a letter to Alan Ginsberg telling him how his experience of William Blake has helped your own understanding of Blake's vision.

Spring was really in the air today... and the spring flowers are beginning their fantastic show around Sydney. Couldn't resist this one. Here is the Hakea Sericia- very spikey- don't touch- but a wonderful fragrance coming from those small white flowers... and here woven with a gentle gossamer film of the morning spiders who have trapped the sunlight in their dewy nets: (double or triple click on the image to see my 3 megapixel image in all its glory!)

Michael that's a great photo- I too have noticed some bright and brilliant wild flowers coming up at the moment even though it's winter. When I drive home to the central coast along the F3 there are these amazing bright pink blooms everywhere. Stunning birdlife too, eastern rosellas, king parrots and black cockatoos.

We actually have a wholesale plant nursery up at my FIL's farm at Jilliby which grows heaps of native grasses and native lillies. I'll put some pic up on my LJ of it.
