    I really enjoyed this story, your photos and the beautiful feather sculptures that were done to honor these men. Timeless. My own father was in England during WWII but was fortunate enough to not see battle and, even though he is 96 now and has dementia, I remember the stories he use to tell about being there and of the men who did not come back. Take care.

  4. It’s lovely to see you Cybele and to see and hear about your summer. This strange time will seem like a second in cosmic time, but it does seem to be lasting forever at the moment 🙂

    Beautiful pictures, my friend, and I know exactly what you mean about feeling that you’re in a bubble – I feel just the same, days pass endlessly, with little distinction between any of them; I feel I’m drifting. Re the WP Editor, I recommend you change back to the original Classic Editor, which is simple and very effective – I’ve been using it for 9 years. Take care! 🙂

    1. Thank you Adrian and yes I’ll stick to the classic editor. I am getting older and not as adaptable to changes lol!!!

    Great images. We can’t see the comet down here in the southern hemisphere so we are enjoying these photographic records of its visit.

  10. It’s always a pleasure to read one of your posts, Cybele! I enjoyed so much that Robin Skelton poem you published a couple of months ago that I ordered an old issue of The Malahat Review just to read a few more of his poems!

  11. Love the comet image – we tried to see it but it was so small and even the most photoshopping in the world wouldn’t fix it up. My friend that lives in Victoria, her father was a signalman at Pat Bay – I am sending her your post to see if she knows about the feathers…

  13. Such lovely images. I have been using the block editor for awhile now and I like it but it took time. I do have one issues with it though…. I have to go back into classic editor to update the images to open when clicked in a separate window then save it then go back tot he block editor to finish make the post. They never fixed that issue or never even thought of it. I want people to click my images to see them bigger and I have to back track to the classic editor to do that. Grrr.

    A lovely post, Cybele, with fabulous photos and images. I’ve never actually seen a real comet, other than on film, and your layered photo is wonderful. I haven’t tried the block editor yet and will avoid doing so as long as I can! My daughter Louise isn’t happy with it, which is enough to stop an old techno-idiot like me from trying it.

  16. The art you create with your photography — amazing to say the least. Sounds like you’ve have a beautiful summer. The only thing about living in a forest is missing the sky! LOL! I’m afraid I haven’t posted for over a year now. I wonder if I’ll ever get back to it. But I still love visiting! Stay safe and well, my friend!

        Not necessarily. When clicking on edit in the upper part of a published post, you’re right. Enter your blog via the wp-admin, like before and you’re rid of the block editor.

    Very nice offering and glad you got to capture the comet (something I missed). At least I’m assuming it’s your photo, but even if not, excellent treatmnet and image.

    Same for the tribute to the airmen.

    Stay safe, keep busy, carry on.

        You don’t have to use it (I still use the classic).

        When in the block editor, there is a menu on the upper right; click on the three dots to open a sub-menu. At the bottom is the option to switch to classic editor.

        At least there is for me.
