The Saturday Symphony #10

Hi and welcome to this very special edition of The Symphony.
It’s been a whirlwind couple of weeks,
With highs and lows,
Loss and gain,
A little despair,
And some bittersweet moments in between.

Sometimes life throws some curve balls,
Sometimes you get sick on this rollercoaster ride,
Topsy-turvy twists like that robbery this weekend,
And the joys of reuniting with long lost friends,

After the joys of this day, I would be visited by that thief in the night. I love my new shades tho, the thief didn’t take those atleast, lol.

Thank you all for the kind and uplifting messages on yesterday’s post.
I’m determined to shrug off this setback,
So lots of love,
This 10th symphony is for you in a very special way.
Can you believe we are already on the 10th edition? Seems just like yesterday I stepped out of my introvert comfort to try out something different.
Thank you for trying this with me.

This week’s three featured posts

  1. The fable of Alison by Daisy
  2. Basura by Mbrazfield
  3. The magical grass of Brittany by Bon Repos

No reviews this week,
So open the secret link and enjoy the surprise.


PONDEROUS THOUGHT

SOUL FOOD

What is your feel good meal,
That special meal you cook or order when you’re really down.
The one that always gets your spirits up.

Write about it, share a photo, design and embellish your response.
Let us know how that meal makes you feel, what makes it special and when do you need it.

Go wild and enjoy writing this as much as you enjoy making or having that meal.

I made this to feel good yesterday, nice spicy stewed chicken and baked Irish potatoes with peppery cabbage and a nice chilli sauce and ketchup side.

Don’t forget to pingback to this post so I can find you, and so others can also join in.

  1. I am so glad you are feeling better about life even though you have had a robbery. I had one a few years ago and also lost cash, computers, cell phones and some electric tools. It happened when I was at home but thankfully I was unhurt. I still felt violated though. I can’t imagine you ever being an introvert. You seem so sociable and likeable.

      Haha, thanks alot Kim for sharing with me. I feel angry and a bit disillusioned about the loss, still yet to make a recovery plan.
      I take a while to get used to someone so I’m quiet until someone is familiar. But apart from the occasional Sunday outing, I like my alone time

    I am happy to have found you! I too was a lonely, alone introvert –
    I did break out of my shell and bounded by leaps. And now being on the other side (retired and a grandmother) – I am retreating again to being alone, but not lonely for the wonderful folks like yourself that I have met online.

    Best to the 10th Saturday Symphony and to all the future ones to follow! Life is a grand adventure and I’ll be back a bit later with my entry. Cheers 🍕🥨🥠🍪🍾

  6. I am glad you have managed to get back on line, Jude. I’ve had a few robberies during my life and they are very upsetting. So is the idea that I write a poem about a favourite food for next week’s challenge?

      Yeah that’s the idea Roberta, soul food for this Saturday’s 11th edition.
      Thank you so much for the support, it’s tough. I’m not fully back online but I need this feature to continue.

      1. Yes, I can imagine it is a real nuisance in many ways, Jude.
