Being a sub-neophyte at blogging I have been searching for a feel that is comfortable to me. In the format which is presented today feels comfortable. A bit time consuming but comfortable. Next time I will make the font a bit larger. As long as I stay with the sonnet the format should be great. Of course not all paintings will be 500 pixel square. When cropping is done notice will be given. In fairness to the work of others links should be given to where the paintings came from. There is a typo in the couplet, first line after the word stress there should be a comma. The slight pause provides emphasis to the closing words. The painting is Ron Hicks.
