Not only did that exercise get the ink flowing, but it also provided this reader, at least, with the morning's chuckle!

Hey Boots,
Loved this.
We've talked before of the direness of Autumn, but here you are in springlike comic mode! Sometimes all we need is a break, a breather, a laugh with a mate, a strange list, a wierd picture. Sometimes all we need to do is not write at all for a while. A rest.
I feel one of those coming on...

The sense of humour certainly hasn't dried up!

A much-needed laugh, D. Thanks. Lightening struck the PC yesterday and have had to buy new...Vista in Spanish. My head and eyeballs feel as if they're about to explode so you're post was a welcome relief.

Let's not even think about going there....

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!
