Welcome back and please, please stay!

Hello there! So pleased to read that you are safe and well, that your family has grown ( in many ways) and that exciting times lay ahead. My goodness, I ve been coming here for years now and it's good to be back.

Thank you Still.point - will do my best!

And Colleen, so good to be in contact again. Your family has grown too! Have just checked, it's now almost nine years since we had that delightful meeting by the Serpentine. Here's a reminder (hope the link works):

How our lives have changed since then, although I suspect that we have not . . .

How wonderful to have you back! You were sorely missed here.
And, please, can you share some details of the combination of yoga, Pilates, exercise, acupuncture and homeopathy that helped you? Whose advice had you taken that worked so well?
All the best,
Teresa

Hello Teresa - how very good to hear from you again. My journey to recovery - a work in progress! - has been quite a complex one, but I will definitely think about writing a post on the subject, in case it helps others. Meanwhile, I hope you are having as wonderful a June in Poland as we are, here in England. Long may the sun shine on all of us!

A very uplifting moment to find that you are back! Have often checked in and this was one of those days and you can imagine the surprise and the good feeling that suddenly enveloped me.

Delighted to hear that there appears to be an upturn with things especially your health. Have just passed the 71 mark myself and got hit with Osteoarthritis shortly in late 2016 so decrepitude advancing (in fact it was shortly after what appeared to be your last post so clearly there must be a connection - well I have to blame somebody!!).

Looking forward to hearing how your new life develops. My very best wishes.

Thought for life

  • The House of Breath, William Goyen
    We are the carriers of lives and legends - who knows the unseen frescoes on the private walls of the skull?

Thinking about . . .

  • Daniel Klein, Travels with Epicurus
    I too listen to music more and more. Throughout my life, music has stirred me more than any other art form, and now, in old age, I find myself listening to it almost every evening, usually alone, for hours at a time.
  • Julia Blackburn, Thin Paths
    I began writing because I liked to write things down. I learnt foreign languages because they seemed to enter my head by a process of osmosis.
  • Joan Bakewell, Stop the Clocks
    I live contentedly alone. It's better that way and I am often thoughtful about what has been and what might have been. There are many like me.
  • Patti Smith, M Train
    Oh to be reborn within the pages of a book.
  • Patti Smith, M Train
    Why is it that we lose the things we love, and things cavalier cling to us and will be the measure of our worth after we’re gone?
  • Judith Kerr, Observer Magazine, 22 November 2015
    I don't believe in God. I find it much easier to believe in ancestors. I like to imagine they are pointing us in the right direction.

Don't miss a post!
