Good to read your post and that you are back to blogging. Life seems to throw several curved balls at once, I have never understood why. I attach a link to another blog where a letter from Japan has been posted. It is incredibly moving and I thought you would like to read it (if you have not already!) http://ynx63.th8.us/ Take care Ronnie

Beautiful post. As I run a small town I've taken these feelings you describe and directed them toward updating the town disaster plan. It makes me feel in control somehow. Which of course is an illusion, but I'm good at self-delusion!

Absolutely understand your sentiments about blogging when such turmoil is going on and people are suffering such huge losses. We all matter though - hope the recent sunshine has made its way into your home and brightened your days.

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!
