NaBloPoMo

At the beginning of this month I set myself a task of posting a blog a day as part of NaBloPoMo, or National Blog Posting Month. This period included a long holiday in Tenerife, and my return to the chill of late November in the UK: it was certainly easier to seek inspiration by the pool in the sun!
My blogs have been a mixture of comment, reflections on my period at a boarding school for disabled children, and a range of haikus, some of which tend towards the traditional models but others which explore a wider variety of topics. I like the haiku because it requires thought to condense what you want to say into the required seventeen syllables, and to still produce something pleasing. (Maybe it’s also because they say haikus are liked by amateurs!)
So, this is the last of my daily postings. I’ve had a fair few ‘likes’ and views from around the world, as well as some compliments, so a satisfying experience. Thank you.
