Off theme again, I'm afraid. But by jumping in now I get to be next door to Tess!
And you're such a nice neighbor, too.
Since we don't have winter here, I can only quote a line by another distinguished poet about reason and write a poem out of things past wintertime :) I hope i am still writing accordingly.
The beauty of the prompts is the wonderfully diverse directions the Magpie writers take us!
Reminds Me of A snowy walk
Wow! 50! Big deal!
This one drifts a bit off topic of the prompt, but I think it still came out alright.
The Road to the future is my take on this prompt
wow-I like the new look here on Magpie-nice font!
Thanks, Kathe, the new year called for an update!
I agree it is a very attractive Magpie page.
Nuts I am not sure how I managed to get on there twice but that was a mistake. Sorry Tess!
Number 12 was last weeks Magpie
It's a nice, new look here. Thanks for the lovely prompt.
Interesting prompt, Tess. I had no idea what to do with it, so I enlarged it and looked at it for a long time while I did other things, until, suddenly, I seemed to see an arrow pointing me in the right direction! LOL-- KKay, Alberta, CanadaAn Unfittie's Guide to Adventurous Travel
Change thwarts habitual thinking.And thanks for an inspirational prompt - as usual.
Enjoyed writing about this....lovely prompt - thank you! xo
Cami, in just two more weeks Magpie Tales will be one year old!
Kristen, no problem, I removed your last week's link! :)
another poem flies from my heart... set free by such a great prompt! Thanks Tess!
is this page rendering funny for anyone else? There seems to overlapping sections and I can not see the posts?
Thanks for another great photo!
Another fascinating spring board for the imagination, Willow - thank you!
I think there may be something nasty in the woodshed! Although I seemed to link successfully, I can no longer get to see the linky list in order to visit other blogs!
yes Jinksy I am experiencing the same problem...
Willow, I know this is a writing prompt, but do you also consider this to be a meme? If so, I will add it to my Memes Page. Please let me know. Thanks!
(P.S. Great new blog design! It's very easy to read now.)
Tess: Something looks funny on Magpie Tales today, maybe it's because I'm using Firefox to view it? The list of links is all off to the side, nearly illegible. Just thought you should know! :) Happy day to you!
Oh, this was a hard one, Willow. Like the new blog changes, too. : )
Uh-oh. Sorry about that, Terresa. How do the new changes look to the rest of you out there???
The layout and colors look fine, but the links to the writers and poets (on the right) is covered over by the info and instructions. (I'm using Firefox too, which may be the problem,) ☼
Hi, great photo, I have posted my entry for this week, but I can't really read the other entries, as the links appear to be off my screen.
Tess, all the links are coming up behind the instructions (far right) on my screen. Thought it was just you being creative and then slowly saw that it was the links list behind.
Well, that stinks. I had WT pull it up on his computer and it looked fine. Might I suggest using Google Chrome?
After a short break from the creative side, it's great to be doing something other than writing about used coffee grounds! Awesome Prompt. Using Firefox and having the same issues as everyone else BTW.
Actually the links on the far right are working!? Hope you can get it sorted out.
Can't get away from the snow this winter..It's even snowing on your blog!!
back to the fairy tales.
no problems for me, Tess; I like the new look and everything's visible for me. Just like it always is, except nice and new.Love the font.
It's a shorty this week.
I'm in, but am having a problem accessing the earlier links for reading - only those in the rightmost column are clickable...
I shed a few tears writing this sonnet today.
Happy 50th dearest of magpies... and thankyou for your anniversary wishes for the parentals x
It has to be Firefox as I'm having problems as well!
I'm in now as well. The redesign looks great on Internet Explorer but is really wacky on Firefox. Using Internet Explorer is sort of like going back to AOL or Word Perfect for me.
I'm having problems too. All the entries are jumbled up with the instructions on the right-hand side.It must be Firefox. I just tried it on Safari and it's OK on that.
All I can suggest is updating by downloading Google Chrome. I did, back when I switched to the new Blogger Templates and it works like a dream.
Yes, your new template looks great in Internet Explorer and in Chrome. It's terrible in Firefox. Chrome is my browser of choice, except when on sites that don't allow it.
Looks fine from here....
Link List looks/works fine using Safari browser.
All looked fine when I came here originally, (using Firefox BTW) but when I came back later the jumble bug had struck - overprinting in sidebar, no linky list, and links only working via comments. EEK! I may not be doing much 'visiting' this week, folks - sorry!
Tess--The new look is a good one. Thanks for the great photo.
what has begun as just in interesting diversion in my weekly blog activities seems to be more of a mania of a life altering sort.
Mine is a lollygag .... :)
links arent working for me either. i havent posted a poem yet just wanted to chime in about this. i do use firefox. can now try the other one.
this came up properly aligned link wise when i used internet explorer to access the site
Great photo! Got me really thinking. I'm having trouble as well with the links on the right hand side. Also using Firefox.
I am working on my poem right now - but wanted to echo the others concerns about the overlapping. I also use firefox and do not run the big E as I loathe microsoft. It opens correctly in Safari though, it must be an issue only with firefox.
Just a quickie this week!
As others have said, your site is now unreadable and unusable for me in Firefox--sorry I'm unable to appreciate the many fine entries or contribute since I can't even see them or access half the links. A shame.
Yup - I'm a firefox victim, too! It might take a little while to access other posts.
You've turned up trumps again. Response posted.
Hello - a bit new here (and late!) but love the site :)
I am very happy to report the solving of the Firefox issue!
Yes, it's working fine now. So glad. I love my Firefox.
A Large thanks to Tess for working so hard to resolve the firefox issue. Take a bow, you deserve it.
Mine's up, new for this prompt as always. Off to read others now that I've finished.
I look at this picture, then look at the snow outside... and say to myself, 'what a PERFECT picture'!! :)Loved this one, Tess!!!
As always, thanks for an interesting photo.
I had just written this poem and "used" the photo afterwards. It may or may not relate.
That's a provoking picture and sign, Tess. Here's what I say: Snowy Woods
just found you. do you have a time limit on this? would love to do it in the meantime i'll do some visiting
Hope, you have until next Tuesday morning! Hop on in, the water's fine!
Just wanted to say, the site is working for me now, links and everything. Love the new look! Thanks, Tess!
Thanks for fixing the FF issue, willow. I really did want to celebrate #50 with everyone. Quite an achievement...looking forward to what everyone's done with this one.
do you believe in serendipity... synchronicity? what timing for this image! thanks Willow for the continued inspiration (cool new look too!)... and to all the writers here. I'm enjoying so much what we come up with as a group!!
I installed Google Chrome!!!! Mine is not up yet
Hey Tess, LOVE thenew look and congrats on 50! FYI, all looks perfect here on Safari in mac-land.
It made me think of the walk I'm taking.
Cool looking graphics, TK.Worthy of a vagabond. ;)
Just found your wonderful site. It's just what the doctor ordered for my case of writer's block. Thanks for the inspiration.
Oh Tess...this was a difficult one for me...I struggled....and strained...
A prompt to have fun with. Thanks, Willow.
The arrow points to the Serengeti!
LOVE the new font and colors!!!
I love the picture...athough I was a little confused by the arrow. Do hope you like the poem.
Wow look at this competitionhttp://saturdayscream.blogspot.com/
Which Direction? is finally up. It's been a very busy week with no let up in immediate sight,Love the new page Tess.
i love that photo prompt. it reminds me very much of the dirt road beside my childhood home...
Great photo! I tell ya though----that one hurt to write. I feel wrung out! (It was cathartic though.) Thanks for the inspiration!
Interesting image. Fits with my nasty cold and generally contrarian mood.
Love the new layout Tess.....and the wonderful prompt. Hope everyone has an awesome Monday! ;-)
I'm so ready for spring! It's been awhile, but I've finally posted again. Now I'm going to enjoy a little reading for a change :) Thanks for hosting, Tess!
Another last minute post...but couldn't miss out on Magpie's half century prompt!Still haven' quite finished last week's though :(where do the weeks go??
