'Bye
It is
never easy to write a good-bye letter even when you know when you are
expected to leave. When you don’t, it becomes almost impossible. I
would compare this to letters between spouses written during the war:
the desire to be upbeat and so present a che...

So sorry to read this. I don't know you other than through your posts here; but you make me sad. Let's hope with John Keats that you can simply "cease upon the midnight with no pain".

Writer's Block

The Cloud of unknowing.
You
jolly nearly didn’t have a blog this week. I
am extremely cross with myself, but the other morning, Wednesday, on
my way to the bathroom for the first time that day, I completely lost
balance. In trying to regain it I managed to crash into one door

More ramblings from Rodney
I
continue to brood on Mili’s question. After a while you realise
that there is no precise centre in any society for any activity. Trees this week - just some rather nice trees. If I have usedd these before, I apologise. A
simple answer when thinking about ...

A few days ago I received an email from one of
Marcia’s earliest readers who ran an on-line chat room about her
books: Mili Arroya. In it she included the following paragraph. Since you enjoy (as I do)

The three stages of writing a blog
One
of the problems when it comes to writing the Friday blog is that at
the moment, for obvious reasons, we are doing very little - thus
there is very little to report. To make matters worse this week the
weather has been horrid down here (and, yes, they we...

A River Trip

Trees - what is it about them? They really are fantastic although I suspect that being a tree can be quite boring sometimes.

It just do happened . . .
