A few years ago when mom was getting dropsy I thought it best if one of us could keep her closer company, in order that she could stay a little longer in the house & garden she loved.
It was my call, but I needed a place to work while… Read full post »

You ( Anna ) might not like this picture much
but I do.
It tells me a story about a night,
a year or 18 months ago,
in your garden,

It seems fairly obvious that we are surrounded by an alien life form.
In the supermarket yesterday a woman tried to push in front of me with a trolleyload of items, none of them edible, and I had occasion to drag her back by the collar into line.

Just Thinking left a comment at trilogy's about this book, or specifically, the cover ~ she wondered about the story behind it ~ for you, Just Thinking ...

Hello Dan, it's Joe here
I hope you're keeping well
Its the 21st of December
There's times like this when fences fall away, & we appear in the gardens of each others' hearts, on porches bearing casseroles or bowls of whatever's good today, made with love & blessings, knowings, whispering comfort, wishing it could stop but it won't,
this endles… Read full post »
Further north, above the Tropic of Capricorn, was Cairns ...
Abattoir was a sort of a lead-up, but I left out the people I loved : Lothar & Carmella, George & Linda etc. I was looking forward to seeing them again.
First stop was Cairns Post Office. I sat on… Read full post »
In a camping ground to the north I met Ingrid, a German backpacker my age. She worked on a boat that took people on day-trips to the islands. The boat was a 45' ketch, the Nari.
Ingrid arranged that I could be dropped at one of the few islands with fresh water,… Read full post »

A friend called Kathy met a guy in Luxembourg, back in the seventies.
She was on a park bench & he came by in a 3 piece pinstripe brown suit leading 3 brindle whippets. They met, they fell in love.

I found a lovely old hand, a bronze bhodisattva's hand in an out-of-the-way place in Luang Prabang. I bought a horse & a tiger there too, & the prices came down - still they weren't much, for what… Read full post »
Suryavarman built Angkor Wat so my sister could turn on the Northern path for a photo. I couldn't help noticing how much trouble he went to.
The stone was quarried miles upriver and dragged to the site by elephants, assembled and carved with images from the Mahabharata, the life of… Read full post »
If you've never been, it's a place ;
a dot on a map, full of monks -
but don't let that put you off - most of them are novices
like you and I. ( some have more English than
the person who does my laundry.)
It's got lots of… Read full post »
I'm going away for a little while - vietnam, cambodia, laos, & asked a friend to send me a pic of this ( on her wall ) - she apologises for the quality, taken with a 'phone, but it gives the gist. I painted this from my verandah in… Read full post »
... the unmarked page is a dream
falling asleep to the cadence of keys,
the deep slow lethe of letters ...

Helvetica Stone got me thinking ...

I'm ok with that. As in real life, there's no other choice,
and who you really are is none of my business.
