i'm well mate thank you for asking. i am apprenticed to build dry stone walls and once taught, i intend to renovate and repair these delights of form and function: far too many are damaged and toppled by careless walkers, especially in the part of England where i was raised which is the Peak District. you would like it there: it is high and barren and windswept...
so for now i am replete with the satisfying of the security needs of those that mine hydrocarbons in the near east although that is not to say i will not be back there again sometime - i am simply ready right now for a change of pace and some greenery and orangery and russetness (newly minted word).
so for a while at least, i will also catch up on my writing and painting and i have been walking a lot too lately, over country not dissimilar to where i will learn how to mend walls. and it is made better still when a dog comes with you (smiles).
and so on and suchforth Pilgrim.
and i trust (that) your puncture is no more and (that) your nose has not proven to be a poor host.
Hope everything is ok your way. It’s been raining all day and evening here and we’re under a tornado watch til morning. I don’t watch the news, so I’m not sure what’s happening elsewhere. Hope y’all are safe there.
Thanks, Daniel. Your comment just made me feel a little emotional. You have also been a good friend to me when it was sorely needed. I’m glad to know you (still). I look forward to seeing where a relearning takes you with poetry. I’ve felt pretty dry for a long time, but I have been working on my family tree and have found out so many interesting things that I feel I could write a book now. If I only have some time. I never thought of poetry as a thing that moves in waves and evolves like birds who are insensible of their changing when I started, but I can see now that it is.
It’s good to see you writing. I still enjoy (find inspiration in) reading what you’re working on, or have worked out. I see on my page I’ve been here a little over six years. I still remember the first poem I posted here, and how important it all seemed to me then. So much has changed in the intervening years, but I still enjoy the same things here (on your page) as I did in those earlier, easier, more optimistic (naive?) years of mine. I do find it harder to discuss, and life is so much different (busier) now for me. I’m sorry I don’t say enough about it, but I still learn from what you’re doing here when you do it.
Thanks Daniel. You hit exactly on some of the reasons I'm happy with it myself. I've had poetry where I've attempted to write about something, this experience for instance, that failed, because I was looking at it wrong. There's a few on the same subject that are just too head on. I was reassured to read this one back and be satisfied with "yes that's the feeling".
Also now I put these ' fellas in there it's even closer ha.
