corner view: roadside from corner to corner

Corner view is a weekly Wednesday gathering, originally hosted by Jane, now by Francesca. A topic is given and you can see impressions; be it photographic or writerly in form, from around the world. Come see the world’s corner view via the links on the sidebar!


This little package has bumped its way along many a roadside here in the US and throughout the world. My pals with the corner view posts had a wonderful idea to pass along a little good tidings from one of us to another in a friendly circle.    See, Joanne, sent a lovely tenugui to Francesca. Who thought it might be fun to pass a little something on to Jane, wrapped in the same lovely wrapping. Soon we all wanted a turn to give and receive in real life from our friends we visit in cyberland on a weekly basis. So Corner to Corner was created and the lovely Kelleyn, who received the tenugui from Tzivia, wrapped a few items for me to take time to myself with and sent it on my way and in a few short days I will pass the love on to Karyn, in New Zealand with a little something of my own making and so on and so forth until the tenugui with it’s string full of well wishes winds its way back around the world to Joanne who will; for all her kindness and foresight, receive these well wishes, knowing that her gift that kept on giving is still in the hands of dear Francesca who will keep the gift once it has completed its circle. Got all that? No? Well here is a link to a better explanation of Corner to Corner.

I’ve been looking forward to my turn for quite some time now and when I saw the envelope in my mailbox my heart beat just a bit faster. Sorting through the cards and seeing the handwritten notes of my friends that have only existed on-line until now just made the connection we share of photography and prose from our corner view of the world all the more real and special. What a delight to be a member of this creative circle. A creativity that until just a few short years ago I had not routinely expressed. This blog has become a very special place for me and the folks and conversations and experiences I have had because of it are just so special to me. I joined  corner view 4 years ago with this post on the color white. Out of all the ways I’ve tried to organize my blog- Corner View has remained the most stable over the years. Even when I go through a period of feeling uninspired; a sure way to get back to writing and sharing is to start with a corner view topic.

Love to you all and here’s to many more years of the view from our corners around the world coming together!

  1. I’m so glad you posted about the corner to corner package! I received it this summer when CV was on vacation, so I never posted my tengui stories and pictures to my blog. I love how you used the little traveling bundle of gifts to reflect on this beautiful community of bloggers! You put words onto an experience that is valuable and quiet in this busy world!

  2. I remember how excited I was when it appeared in my mailbox! I made myself wait a couple days before I opened it and spent some quiet time reading all of the tags. (And I got some great goodies from Beth 🙂 )

    • LOL Heather- I’m impressed you could wait! I didn’t wait long- just long enough for my kiddos to be out of the room so they wouldn’t tear through the cards!

  3. I love seeing the tenugui is making its way around the world!!
    Your post is so sweet and heartfelt and I share the gratitude for Corner View and having the chance to meet such wonderful friends around the world !
    Happy travels to the tenugui and happy days to you! ♡
