Welcome to my first foray into a blog.
 
I realise most blogs have a topic of interest, theme or the like but, at this point my blog maybe quite random as I gain my blogging feet.
 
In this post I will give a brief run-down about my published efforts to date (plus information on where to find them) as well as the up-coming release of an eBook of poetry co-written by  my partner, Kevin, and me - Forming a Picture of You.
 
Tea With Miss Tilly, illustrated by Philip Webb, was published in 2012 by HarperCollins NZ Ltd. It’s a picture book written for 3-7 year-olds. Miss Tilly is the epitome of a storyteller, someone/something I hope survives the techno highway we are accelerating at breakneck speeds down.
If you wish to purchase Tea With Miss Tilly, please follow this link to HarperCollins: Tea With Miss Tilly, by Justine Payen & Illustrated by Philip Webb
 
To read the story Only Fools & Murder I wrote for one of my Massey University papers please follow this link: Only Fools & Murder . Also, my Kiwi take on a Brother’s Grimm fairy tale, The Twelve Dancing Princes can be found here: The Shoemaker & the Twelve Dancing Princesses.Both Noisemedium.com and Goethe-Institut New Zealand have some wonderful stories on their sites – it’s well worthwhile staying and immersing yourself in them.
 
As I said above, Forming a Picture of You will shortly be published ‑ initially as an eBook on Kindle. I will place up the link to the book as soon as it goes live, but until then here’s one of the poems. I hope you like it:

A Tear For You
by Kevin Baddeley
 
I shed for you a single tear
for every day of every year.
And hold you up for all to see
a gift from heaven just for me.
For you’re the hand and I’m the glove
Eternally we’ll share our love.
 
I shed for you a single tear
for every day of every year.
To help you through all mortal pain
and set your spirit free again.

Thanks Jenny. I actually had more fun doing this blog then I expected to. I have just been on your Tui Cottage site and really enjoyed learning about Orere Point and reading your stories which I thoroughly enjoyed. Fantastic photos with wonderful rhymes. When I tried to access your blog it threw up an error message.

This is such a lovely poem you have shared with us! It talks mainly about the eternal love that you wished to share with your loved one. Our tear is a precious gift of our Almighty God, we should not waste a single drop. That is why we must shed it only for someone worth our love that is given to us by God. A true love is what we all hope for and I know that all of us will have it, so let us all save our tears for those who are worth it.

Thanks Wendy, I'm still learning heaps about my website and now blogging. I have found Vistaprint to be really, really straightforward and easy to use, which is always a benefit for someone with not a lot of time.
