A to Z 2014 - My Theme

I'm taking part again this year in the A to Z Challenge  which is Arlee Bird's brainchild.

This post is in response to Vidya Sury's Theme Reveal


I'm thinking oh Lord, what's my theme ...

Initially I thought I would go with Random but from experience through last year's A to Z and other festival of words through the Write Tribe,  it's much easier to have a theme.

I thought I would have a spiritual aspect to my theme as when I look at all my posts it is my spiritual posts with a personal aspect to it that seem to be the most popular.

So this year my theme is  "Life's Jigsaw".

Life is like a jigsaw puzzle. Each little piece is an aspect of our journey through it. And when at last we find that last piece and fit it into place, we eventually see the meaning of this life.

Each of the 26 letters are a piece of my puzzle - but by no means the whole. So join me on my journey as life hands me a piece at a time and perhaps you will help me put them together to make some meaning of my life so far.

I look forward to joining in your journey too, for the pieces of my puzzle are also linked with the pieces of yours and vice versa.

And if you haven't joined in yet, drop by at AtoZ  and sign up. btw I'm number 221.




And as if 26 days weren't enough I'm also taking part in the April Ultimate Blogging Challenge ... yikes!


Enjoy your day.


Drop by my facebook page Suzy's Ilation and if any of your posts needs some tlc, leave a link there and I'll drop by and give it some love.



Warm Regards

  18. Hi - I think your analogy about a jigsaw puzzle and life is very apt. Plus whenever my extended family gets together, there is always at least one jigsaw puzzle in the works! I look forward to visiting you in April. This is my first A to Z, and I am going to learn so much about other bloggers, their interests and topics. Blogging is truly a fascinating community.

  32. Hi Suzy, what an clever idea - I love your jigsaw analogy, and that you ask for readers to help piece together your own jigsaw... we are all so good at noticing the obvious in everyone else. This is going to be a heartwarming #atozchallenge I'm sure

  52. Life's Jigsaw? Sounds awesome!
    This could go in so many directions. Endless possibilities.

    My theme is “If Books Could Speak, What Would They Say” and is guaranteed to be LOTS OF FUN! It is interactive, and bloggers are invited to play along!
    See you around on the A to Z circuit!

  55. I had thought of Life's Jigsaw, then decided on ‘26 Positive Takes on Life’, which will generally focus on positive, truly heart-warming, real-life incidents involving ordinary persons whom we can all emulate. I'm looking forward to reading your Jigsaw posts!
