Hello Caroline, i saw your comment on Rosie's at leaves n bloom, and you referred to Andrea (me), who "pipped" you.... Then there was this word 'ekphrasic', which honestly i still dont know, then i looked for it, specifically Wikipedia, and i learned. Thank you very much. Then i came in here and what an 'ekphrasic' photo it is! It seems like i am serendipitously coming accross some people of the arts through blogs, as i was checked just this morning by a certain Carolyn (another species of your name). So i am very thankful for the Carol(ine - yn/s) of this world. I'm glad to have found you!

I love ekphrastic ideas, Andrea, usually in the form of a union of visual and written art e.g. a painting that co-exists with a poem, the one enhancing and completing the other. You may have read my piece on the subject here. I'm amused at the 'species' of my name ;-) ...

As for 'pipped to the post', well , simply 'beaten by someone who got there or did this or that first' - but I wonder how the phrase originated!
