Posted on Tue, 31 Mar 2020

I am so enjoying these.  They're brilliantly written. I hope Jim Morrison will be live streaming his musical creations before too long.  Next time you see Tom Petty, ask him if Steve McQueen (the old film star, the director one is a bit young for...

Posted on Mon, 30 Mar 2020

I do rather love the place, it really does seem like a personality in its own right to me.  Interestingly I know people who hate it for a lot of the same reasons that make me so fond of it.  Perhaps it's because I chose to live here after a...

It's one of those things that we always knew was coming, I think, but we all chose to believe it wouldn't catch up with us.  Next up:  climate change ...

Thak you!  Most of my stuff is sitting on someone's desk mopping up coffee stains, I think.  And perhaps the world is suffering enough at the moment.  ...

Posted on Mon, 30 Mar 2020

And so glad to know I'm not the only one!  I watched a bit of that very same Poirot, and then had a conversation with the cushions about Suchet vs Ustinov vs Finney vs the upstart John Malkovich.  

Funny and delightful - except for the...

Posted on Sat, 28 Mar 2020

I love the idea of this conversation.  I think I would be apprehensive of what any creature would have to say to me about our stewardship of the planet.  You describe the bee fly so cleverly as well.  I don't think I've ever seen one, but then, I...

I hope we will all learn from this, as you say, and go on to work together to build a better world.  Also hope that you and yours are, and continue to be, well.

Posted on Sat, 28 Mar 2020

Wonderful poem, Di, and your ending is so uplifting.  The tarmac eel is a brilliant image.  I shall think of that whenever I'm next walking along the main road into town.

I'm loving Tina's messages.  Glad my mog isn't the only one who...
