The FOLKS...

An ocean light haunted by avocet and tern
and the knapped towers of North Norfolk churches.
Towering clouds above
the flint and gorse of
a wide East Anglian landscape


And my Folks
The way I have ALWAYS known them
Pacing out the country paths
Arm in Arm
and
Hand in Hand

    1. Yes it does :)
      It has always been that way - their bodies are ageing, but that is the only thing.

    1. Thank you Kelly. When I was young, I thought that everyone's parents/marriage was like theirs. It was only later when I found out what a privilege it is to have them as role models. They have taught me a lot about relationships and the importance of growing together...

    1. Thank you, Mandy. No I haven't published anything - I can't really think of a publisher who would be interested in this type and style of writing ;))

  8. The last two posts show a humanism, which derives from the fullness of your soul.

    1. Yes, Mandy, you can, can't you? And they are always such unconscious, spontaneous acts - which seem to make them even more genuine and precious.

    1. It does seem to say a lot, doesn't it? And it is how they have always walked together - it sums them up so neatly

For your voice is important... and words that are shared grow wings.
