Welcome to my the first monthly newsletter from my blog 'a-letter-from-home'
I started a blog called A-Letter-From-Home many years ago as a way of sending a round-robin letter to my children who had more or less left home and also to friends and relatives living further a-field.
I've loved keeping in touch with many people through the internet. We have shared ideas and thoughts through our various blogs. It's a sort of huge 21st Century network of pen-pals everywhere, all over the world. I suppose there's a good chance that some of the people whose blogs I 'follow' could live in the next street, others on the other sided of the world and I might never know.
Then I started wondering about people who would like to join in with this kind of sharing, but don't use the internet? So this is for you; I'm hoping that someone who knows you, and follows my blog, might print off these pages and post them to you, and that you might be entertained by being part of this online community.
Word of the Month - Liminal
which means 'occupying a space at both sides of a boundary'. I think this work exactly describes the month of October. I have still been able to have morning coffee or afternoon tea in the garden. It has been warm enough to sit outside without coat, hat, scarf and gloves and bask in the warmth of the sun.
We are in that suspended in that golden space between Summer and Autumn; the colder mornings and evenings are a warning of what is to come, while the warm sunny mornings and afternoons hark back to the hot days of Summer.
