Gifts For Dad For 2021

1954 An era of subtlety, the 1950s was not, as evidenced by these Cutter Cravat artist originals. Frankly, it’s difficult to interpret what the patterns actually were. We have words for argyle and houndstooth and checkered, but these are littered with sprigs and swirls in bold (and often […]

November Twenty-fifth Plans and Recipe For a Good Day

Poem: Wisdom Gleaned (09/10/21) – 28/11/21

Eddy Dixon – Relentless

My thanks to Cincinnati Babyhead (CB to be short) turned me on to this song. The guitar hooked me right away. The song has turned into a cult favorite. Relentless came from the 1981 cult movie soundtrack Loveless staring Willem Dafoe. Eddy is not an easy guy to […]

the presence of love

loving is hard work, relating all we’ve known,truth, and deep pain, resonatesthe same…and, sometimes it does burn, scalding from within,as we look up, transfixed, by the night sky,cool, placid, not dim we wonder what’s hidden in those galaxies, far away, as we try,offering solace to our hearts, giving […]

Reflections in Icy Blue

A sprinkling of tumbledown cottages whose whitewashed walls huddle beneath a cluster of thatched rooftops  Crouch low on the crest of rolling hills of emerald green That overlook patchwork fields in russet red the colour of ploughed soil And old gold ready for harvest as far as the eye can see  Beneath vast skiesawash in a pale blueDaubed […]

Absurdities #11

We’re Not Bleeding

Nothing else

I had a look at Fay Collins’ portfolio, and there are such lovely paintings among them, I couldn’t resist writing to another, one of my favourites, Galloway Cattle Grazing at Ennerdale Water. Nothing else Nothing so high as a mountain,nothing greener, bluer,mistier autumn mornings. Nowhere the trees cling […]

Mr. Robot (2015-2019)

Thought I haven’t found Rami Malek’s recent performances compelling, he is absolutely brilliant in Mr. Robot! It’s as if he’s lived his entire life with the goal to play the role of Elliot Alderson—a cybersecurity engineer who has crippling social anxiety, is addicted to morphine, and grapples with […]
