My days are layered. One day is heaped upon another in an endless stream. Swirling currents from years gone by flow through them.


Sketches in ink - 51-52 My landlady gave us these objects of her work and creativity. They are lightly roasted dried figs and almonds. It seemed a pity to cut them up and eat them, but we did. We know what they taste like, you see. I make a mental note to factor in time;... Continue Reading →

Oddities – the 2014 version

Here are a few oddities: I have been rushed off my feet with work since before Christmas, yet I have been taking stock. I love my sleep, yet I have not had very much of it – unless you count the last four nights. I have many plans, but no concrete plan in place for 2014.... Continue Reading →

A difficult balance

I do have a good laugh when I choose to write on a subject about which I know so very little. When I was still at school, we had to read a novel by George Duhamel entitled Le Notaire du Havre which, as now expected with so much of modern literature, had nothing - and... Continue Reading →

The lyrics are included in this link, so why don't... Continue Reading →

Saturday morning introversion

Susan Cain: The power of introverts | Video on I am so glad I have real friends on Facebook who post interesting things I wait two days to watch because I think it is going to take too much of my time. This video is only nineteen minutes long, and well worth every single... Continue Reading →

Fast forward

Today could be the perfect case study for bad time management. I pretty much had it under control for three and a half hours. At 10:30 I had been working for two hours at a steady pace and was enjoying the experience. Then I remembered my partner had a dental appointment at 11:30. Well, we... Continue Reading →

Allow me to introduce myself

Call me old-fashioned, if you will.  I like to be introduced when I meet people I have hitherto not encountered, even if I perform the introduction myself.
