I broke my only rule for this blog, which was to never post anything other than poetry here,
and let’s just say (euphemistically so) that it didn’t quite work out.
But, as someone once said –
“One must suffer for one’s art.”
(Or was that, “One must suffer one’s art”? 🙂 )
Poetry does not require an audience but a competition requires a winner (usually) and, as yet, and maybe forever, this one has none. However, in the interests of fairness and squareness, not to mention officialdom, it must be properly concluded with a closing date,
winner or no.
So, the closing date for the Easter egg hunt (sort of) competition
is midnight 8th May, 2011 (Sydney, Australia time)
and, now, back to what I came here for…
“One does not love a place the less for having suffered in it unless it has all been suffering, nothing but suffering.”
Jane Austen, Persuasion
