  1. Hi,

    I’ve been talking to Thomas Marlowe and we are both missing the Trifecta Challenge. One thing led to another and we have decided to set up Light and Shade Challenge where there are prompts twice every week and a chance to share what inspiration strikes.

    We are not trying to be the same as Trifecta. They were awesome and I miss them. We do have some really exciting ideas of our own, though and can’t wait to see what happens. It would be great if you could come and join us and see where this journey takes us. Good writers are always welcome. If you have any questions then get in touch either on the Light and Shade Challenge Blog http://lightandshadechallenge.blogspot.co.uk/ or on the Facebook page. It would be wonderful to hear from you.

  2. Hi Valerie,
    It has been over 20 years since we have seen each other. I recently found you online and have enjoyed your writing. My maiden name is Black. Do you remember me? You can get in touch via my email if you’d like to reconnect.

  3. By your comment I was able to follow an invisible thread to magically end up here in your peaceful painted island of words. Beautiful they are too. Peace
