Calamity's Corner October

Another good edition of Calamity's Corner, Wendy.
I loved reading Canadian author and poet, Nancy M Bell's article on the Power of Words in October's CC.
Nancy has kept many of her childhook scribblings: short stories, poems and even novels. She is in good company. The famous members of the Bronte family wrote when they were children. Their juvenilia was gathered together by a later biographer and published.
Being a writer has made Nancy many new friends. She calls it the Magic of words. Words are power and power opens doors. She warns that words should be wielded with care and compassion.
I enjoyed following Aussie travellers, Pam and Paul Thomas, around Montepulciano, an Italian town in romantic Tuscany.
Movie and book reviews, quick quiz, meeting Chirp, Taylor McGovern's well-named pet budgie who has just turned one year old, plus many more bits and pieces are all there in Calamity's Corner.
Send in photos of your favourite holiday and words to go with them to Calam, or feature your pet.
I must send my best wishes to dear little Spitzli, who dislocated her kneecap and will have an operation Tuesday. Three barks to you, Spitzli, and hopefully soon you will be running around on those four little legs.

  1. Thank you for supporting Calamity's Corner, Laurel. I really apprecite it.

  2. I agree Laurel. It's a great magazine. I want to go and live in Tuscany for a while. Sounds amazing. How lovely does Montepulciano look? I want to go there NOW. Is that a problem?

    Maybe I will go and check out the movie reviewed in CC instead. :) Need a good laugh and Johnny English Reborn sounds like a perfect choice for that.

    Best Wishes for Spitzli's speedy recovery!

    At least I can afford to go to the movies.. and do the quiz.
