Every night
The horizon lights up
Swirls of pink and orange
Fading to blue and purple

Few bother to look anymore
At a blessing
That only comes once a day                                    (Ref- Poems of Jessica Millsaps)

Southbound again I don’t know if I’m going or leaving home
Boy got to be moving
Seems like the boy is bound to roam  (Ref – Dire Straits)

Last night was the official launch of artist Thomas Powell’s latest art exhibition at the Hin Bus Art Depot in Penang, Malaysia. The theme is from here to there. This collection of work follows Tom’s journey from the UK to Penang and shows the evolution of his life as he discovers and unravels more of the culture in Malaysia.

Thank You WordPress

A Mixed Bag

After my not very happy post I did a couple of days ago about the change WordPress had done to the notifications, I would like to thank them for changing it back. It may be temporary, but I hope not. I hope it stays this way again.

So a big thumbs up to WordPress.
