A soft bump

when angels collide with people
I have my work friend to thank for this one.

She looked at my arm and said, ‘You’ve been bumped by an angel.’ Not understanding, I said rather intelligently (not), ‘Huh?’ She plucked the lone feather which was stuck to my jacket and showed me. It made me smile. Hope this cartoon makes you smile too.

And an important message for current followers of this site. I’ve finally plucked the courage to change over from this WordPress hosted site to self hosting. What does this mean for current WordPress followers of this site? It means that you’ll receive an alert when I convert. If you wish to still keep in touch (and I’d love you too as it might be rather lonely out there), then you’ll be promoted to re-subscribe. For current email followers, there’s no change as the emails will continue.

Why the change? I feel that I’ve outgrown the current environment and want to have more freedom with the development of my site. I have no skill set, so I’ll have to learn as I go. Rather than a well thought out plan, it’s a bit more like a leap of faith. Wish me luck and hopefully you’ll join me.

  1. Hate to see you go away. (actually I won’t see ya go away, I’ll just notice you’re gone. Stay in touch and let me know what happens.

      Ah, it’s followers like you that give me the courage to go the next step. I was hoping you’d still join me. I realise my visibility will drop when outside of the Wordprerss environment, so a few on line friends will help. You made me smile 🙂

    I have a friend in England who writes a blog called “67 Not Out” and he has quite a few posts about white feathers falling from the sky to bring people comfort,usually just after they lost someone significant in their lives. http://www.67notout.com/2011/07/meaning-of-white-feathers-as-messages.html
    I’ll have to show him this cartoon of yours Marti.
    I’m sure he would like it.
