Write to think, think to write...



I had an ‘OOPS’ moment last night in my attempt to do some editing on my blog.  I inadvertently published a post I wrote last year. When it arrived into my inbox I new the deed was done. So...if Hip Hop Happening Mama and a Paleo Priest sounds familiar to some readers, you are not imagining it. 

Hanging around...
I had promised myself that I would give you all a break, post something light to give you a rest from the length of the recent posts. I am not sure what has gotten in to me lately, this editing process has put me on brain alert or maybe it is because I am spending more time thinking while hanging from a tree (above). 

Thinking cap...
You see, I write to think and I think to write and lately I have been doing a lot of thinking. It has been an interesting and healthy process for me (one I highly recommend)…whether I have any blog readers left at the end of my editing process is another matter.

Saying that, if you would like to read about the latest garden projects at Tahilla Farm, read here. If you would like to add a few Vietnamese flavours to your herb garden, read here, if you would like to travel to Antarctica, read here and if  you want to lift your health game, read here

If there is anything you would like to read more of from Collage of Life...while I am on a roll?

I love to write postcards…and I would love to send one to you!
If you prefer I keep it simple...with a postcard, from me to you, I would love to send you one! If I have sent one to you in the past, you are on the 'PC list'. You can leave a comment below and just say PC Please and I will take it from there.  If you are new to Collage of Life, you can email me your address,  jeannecollageoflife@gmail.com . 

Like mother, like daughter...
My daughter, Miss Christine, picked up the writing bug a few years ago. Her blog is called tine. It has been a while since her last post (sounds familiar) but she is writing again which makes her mother very happy.  Her latest post, Smart Memories?, offers words for thought. You can read it here

From my thinking spot in Vietnam and Miss Christines thinking spot in Australia...we wish you a wonderful day, evening, afternoon, wherever you may be in this great big beautiful world of ours!

  3. From Antarctica (just read and commented on that post!) to Bondi Beach and Saigon - wow Jeanne, I love getting a trip around the world when visiting you here!

    I read several of Christine's posts - like you she's a great writer - I hope she continues to update her blog as it's great to see the world through her young eyes too!

    Sending hugs - be sure to consider a trip to 'heaven on earth' - going in early 2017 would be perfect, but you need to plan now! I can help with the packing list, haha!

  5. PC please. I love reading your blog. For me it's so much more than a travel catalogue because you write from the heart--whatever your observations. It is this extra depth that just is so enjoyable. Your photos place me there in time and provide the backdrop for your thoughts. Keep up the good work, Doll. If there were awards for such things, you'd be acknowledged.

  8. Ah, you've reminded me. I wrote you a postcard when you were at Tahilla but I did not know your address there and was not sure whether you were going back to Vietnam. Now I can send it. And yes, would love a PC please. I would also love to hand from that tree too. It looks like the perfect place to stop and think.

    1. Yours is on it's way Loree...from Hanoi. Hold that thought on the PC to me, I am happy to send you my address at Tahilla. It's a hit or miss game when mail comes to Vietnam. I love the thought of arriving to Tahilla in May with a postcard or two tucked in my mailbox. ;)

  10. I love reading your blog...you are taking me to so many places! I have a small collection of post cards from Japan, where my son and DIL lived for 4 years. They are now residing in London...well, my son will join his wife once he gets his spousal visa! All of this to say...I would love a postcard...I will email you my address. I love your thinking spot too! ;)

  11. In your post, you sound happy. That is good.
    The swing seat is divine! Are you going to have a swinging covered hammock at Tahilla Farm?
    Bondi Beach! Where's the veT!? The television show, "Bondi Vet" aired on the Canadian channel here, and then stopped. I miss it.

    1. Thank you May! We have a swinging hammock at Tahilla and one day the one above will be swinging from somewhere (I hope) at Tahilla Farm. I havent's seen Bondi Vet but will be sure to mention it to Christine. I think a pet's life in Bondi would be pretty interesting. ;)
