This meme is on a break while the host and hostess decide what is the best way to take it forward, since both are lost in their own worlds at present and this site is suffering as a consequence.

Thanks for your patience..

Week #77 And A Few Changes

Hey there, well wishers and writers of Thursday Tales... I know it's been a while, and probably, it'd have been a while more had it not been for this sudden decision on my part to renovate this place. This meme, quite dear to my heart, for it was the first meme venture I took, with one of my best and closest friends, Yamini, has been inactive now for a month, due to net and personal time problems, but it starts in a new avatar from tomorrow.

What changes? The name, you’d have noticed already, has changed… The name “It’s Thursday”, suggested by another good friend, indicates we’re going generic in style. Not just stories, but poetry also is welcomed at this space from now. On some weeks, keeping with the first idea we had for the blog, it’ll be only stories. You’ll know in the post. The theme for the week, it will stay… after all, that’s what you come here for… to find inspiration. However, it won’t always be a picture. It might be a few words, a single word, or an emotion, something totally unexpected… Depends on that time and mood I guess. I’d thought of the name “Totally Random Thursdays” at first, but then this name felt more tongue friendly. Hope you all continue to thrive here as you’ve done before.

To help with the change-over, the URL of the blog stays the same. We’re not shifting to another URL.

So, without further adieu, move on to Week #77 here, and it is a picture. I found it for a story I’d written recently, and give it to you too.



Write a story or a poem about the picture and share it with us here using the link widget. No word limits, but two things are important: 1) a hyperlink back to the artist is a MUST. The artist is Dave (~swineandroses) at DeviantArt and the image can be found HERE. If no credits link, the link shared here will be removed. 2) Read some of the other entrants too and give a comment.

Interpret it as you see it, how you see it... A picture can be spoken about a thousand different ways! :)

Have fun. See you next Thursday. By then, I’ll get the header and badge updated as well.

"A picture can be spoken about in a thousand different ways! :)" and it would be fun to read where the picture will take the contributors here!! :D

this image grabbed me immediately ~ it was days before i began to see the faces and figures. {smile}

i've submitted a short story/haibun which was a collaboration between Ainsley Allmark and myself ~ i hope you like it, Leo. i'll be around to visit this evening. {didn't want to see what anyone else wrote until we were done.}

good luck with the changes, Leo. they all sound great!
