My Book Has Arrived!

It was with great excitement that I collected my long-awaited book of poetry, "The relativity of a corroded mind", authored by the incredibly talented Ms Lavinia Boja, today!

For those of you who enjoy reading up and coming young poets of our own time, I urge you to purchase your own copy of Lavi's debut publication. She is an incredibly talented, passionate writer who explores the deeper nuances of the mind. Please visit her blog to acquaint yourself with Ms Boja. I predict we will be hearing a lot about her in forthcoming years, as she truly is a rising young star!


  1. I don't think there's any treat better than a new and anticipated book. Enjoy!

  2. I love it when books I order arrive! Just love it! I'm going to check this young poetic out!

  3. Enjoy your book, Desiree! I love poetry and I'm heading over to check out her site. I hope you are having a wonderful week, dear friend!

  4. Dear Desiree, a book I've been expecting came today also! How wonderful to sit down with a hot cup of tea (oh, if only I had a scone, but it's a little too hot to bake today) and read a new book.

    I'll go to the writer's blog you suggested in your posting today and do some reading there also.

    Thank you so much for your comment today on my convent posting. You always seem to understand the underlying motive behind what I write.

    As to that outfit--yes, it was hot--the habit was made of seven yards of serge. But somehow at that age I seldom felt the heat. It's only as I've aged that I've become uncomfortable with hot weather.

    What happened a lot, however, for me is that my complexion was oily and so the bottom edge of my forehead band stained each week. Also, it incised itself into my forehead and I was left with a permanent crease!


  5. What a beautiful setting you have photographed the book on, Desiree! I hope you enjoy your book of poetry. I will pop across to Lavi's blog now. I thought I was a follower, but her blog hasn't come up on my blog list for some time now. Hugs to you.

  6. I hope that you have a lovely relaxing time reading your book and that you enjoy every pag.

    I will definitely look up the the grinning crocodile blogspot in the next few minutes!

    Have a great weekend.

  8. Yes, that is a beautiful setting, Desiree. I love the cover of the book and the title. I hope you find a nice, quiet spot in which to enjoy your new book!

  9. Omg, I'm blushing! And roses and candlelight next to the praise words too. Thank you, Desiree, you've made my bleak day brighter :)
    I hope you'll enjoy it (short and silly as it is) and thank you again for all the support!

  10. Dear Desiree,
    Oh, how exciting it must be for you to read♬♬♬

    Well, I just wondered two glass things; one by the beautiful roses and the one next one on the saucer. They look really attractive♡♡♡
