Art, Photography, Poetry – BlogLetter – Amended Weekly Schedule (Update) by Goff James

Welcome Dear Friends. A Joyous Weekend to all.

You will notice that there is no Blog Letter, as such, again this week.

It is now the end of July and is the time I stated that I would review the whole situation regarding the thorny issue of scheduling.

Over the past few weeks I have been looking closely at the way my blog has been structured.

There have been some further minor adjustments.

I take this opportunity to thank my dedicated followers and new readers for joining, I thank you all for your support, encouragement and comments on my blogging journey. I truly appreciate your follow.

Many Thanks

Art, Photography, Poetry – BlogLetter – Amended Weekly Schedule by Goff James

Welcome Dear Friends. Happy Weekend to all.

You will immediately notice that there is no Blog Letter, as such, this week. There have also been other changes.

Over the past few weeks I have been looking closely at the way my blog has been structured. Time management has been a key issue. With the new format, I am now able to get back into my studio to paint and pursue my many other interests.

After much advice and consideration I have decided to redesign and restructure the scheduling format. I trust the restructuring will improve the quality of your experience when visiting.

All will be reviewed again at the end of July.

I take this opportunity to thank my dedicated followers and new readers for joining, I thank you all for your support, encouragement and comments on my blogging journey. I truly appreciate your follow.

Many Thanks

The Amended Schedule.

BlogLetter – Art, Music, Photography, Poetry

Issue 18 (July 13, 2019)

Welcome Dear Friends. Happy Weekend to all. Summer continues with good grace – not too hot not too cool. Hitherto the rain has been held at bay.

It has been one of those weeks that has been perfect for doing just about anything – working and resting, walking and talking, reading and writing. I’ve even got back to working on completing paintings in the studio. I trust you have had a great week too.

I have managed to tidy up some of the borders in the garden; Rearranging pots and garden furniture cutting back plants that had become truly invasive and getting rid of some entirely. All ready for composting.

Went to the gym Monday and Wednesday. Followed by a relaxing coffee and chat with friends. In between took another trip out west.

It is that time to share with you my thoughts about some of the week’s postings.

My blog is about sharing, with friends, an eclectic mixture of art, photography, poetry, writing and once in a while a little of my favourite music.

As usual, Issue 18 features some more of my personal favourite posts as well as friends’ favourites.

Quote of the week

IMAGES OF THE WEEK

Art – Fissure #1, 2019

This week’s artwork Fissure #1

The inspiration for this work came about from visiting and walking around the exterior of a local arts centre. Over time the effects of rain upon the materials of the building created a fusion of tones which I found particularly exciting. Hence the piece was born.

Photography – Without Words 224

Without Words 224 is an image that was taken whilst on one of my frequent visits west. It was one of those days when everything seemed to be just right, the light, the tide on the turn and the mood.

Poem – Colours

My favourite poem this week was Colours

© Goff James, Colours

Peter Nottrott”s painting Evolution M1 with its fusion of melting colours manages to encapsulate the mood of the poem. The poem itself evolves and grows from the mixing of colour words into the final verse.

Top Spot – this week was At Dawn

Georgeta Blanaru”s painting Ocean Dance At Dawn captures both the words of the poem and the mood of a storm that has passed but is reluctant to leave the embrace of the sandy shoreline.

Music Box

This week the song I shared with you was My Prayer sung by the Platters.

My new scheduling programme appears to be working well. There are still adjustments to be made two of which are whether to continue publishing a BlogLetter and the Music Box.

Initial feedback appears to indicate that my blog should just concentrate upon key posts related to my core interests – Art, Photography and Poetry. This appears to be a broad spectrum in itself without expanding it further.

As the saying goes – ‘Less is More’
