  9. Why your photos inspire me to write about nostalgic moments I do not know. After this one I had a strange sense of longing. I have never been a little girl nor knew my grandfather. Thanks for steering my imagination.

  10. Have to say Willow, honestly I was not thrilled about this photo personally. Even considered skipping it, then pondered. Okay, I'm an idiot - it's awesome...it did it's job well in prompting me to do the work of thinking hard! I'm just lazy, I guess. THANK YOU for making me "ponder".

  11. Hey Willow, Thanks for the prompt. I couldn't drum up a story this time, maybe it'll come. Instead I wrote a short ditty.

  36. Just wanted to say a quick thank you for the most unique photo prompts you give to us. In researching the Opinel knife I learned more than I could have imagined. It's always a learning experience with you!

  37. Dear Willow,

    I haven't written a poem in almost a decade. I am now a writer of Malay epics and folklore and I am just starting to compose Malay pantun...but I started writing when I was 11 by writing poetry and rhymes. Your invitation made me create a blog tonight in which I quickly typed in some of my long forgotten poems that I had to find by going through old boxes and crates.

    Thank you - for more than you can imagine.

  45. Wow willow, any more and we'll all have to spend a whole day reading them! Astonishingly, the Magpie community has stayed supportive and kind, even with so many new nestlings. I think we'll see a hundred posters sometime in the near future.
