As soon as we met up for this meeting we knew it was going to be a very special one indeed. The sun was gently shining and all the diverse shades of green in the garden were sparkling. Soon we were off for our ginko and silent jotting. Smiles across the ponds and along the pathways.
Due to the large number of submissions received for the 4AHA, and other unforeseen circumstances, the response time will be longer than we estimated. The editors thank you for your poems and your patience.
On June 11th, seven White Pebbles members met at Gosford/Edogawa Commemorative Gardens for our winter meeting. As always, we caught up for a brief chat over coffee or tea before heading out into the garden at precisely 10:30 to walk in silence and jot what we observed.
It was a joy for members to reconvene in person for Bowerbird Workshop #22 in the Pearl Beach Crommelin Native Arboretum cottage. Poetry, music and artistry came together in a meaningful and extremely enjoyable way.
A report of the meeting and three appraisals are available to read here.
Despite rain making driving difficult for the majority of members who travel long distances, seven of us and a welcome return visitor met up to greet each other cheerfully at Gosford/Edogawa Commemorative Gardens and Regional Gallery on March 19th. How good it was to be together in person. Present were Marilyn Humbert, Samantha Hyde, Gwen Bitti, Gail Hennessy, Maire Glacken, Colleen Keating and Beverley George, and guest Michael Thorley. Unfortunately Kent Robinson was unable to join us this time and we very much look forward to seeing him in June.
It was an individual choice whether to ginko in the garden or the gallery and before too long we had clustered at the round table in our quiet meeting room. And here we are.
What a delight it was to meet up with fellow members for our summer meeting at our regular venue, the Gosford/Edogawa Commemorative Gardens and Regional Gallery. Regrettably, and for understood and respected reasons, several of our members were unable to attend and they were missed. Present were Kent Robinson, Samantha Hyde, Gwen Bitti, Verna Rieschild and Beverley George. A welcome guest was poet Michael Thorley.
