River Einion

A Waterfall On the River Einion There, the Dyfi Furnace remains Where the waters once raced To a mill from the top With all its power Leading to this waterwheel Taking advantage of the powers Of this river From Cumbria via the Afon Dyfi Where charcoal was once produced Long ago from the local woodlands, Where iron ore once burned; But burns no more. The Dyfi Furnace is in the village of Furnace, Ceredigion, Wales, adjoining the A487 trunk road from Machynlleth to Aberystwyth, near Eglwysfach. The furnace was built around 1755 was only used for about fifty years to … Continue reading River Einion

Myna Bird

Waking up this morning to the calls of two myna birds croaking, squawking and chirping along with the clicks and whistling whilst fluffing their feathers in their morning ritual bath. I was infatuated watching the two of them bob their head in singing. They bathe every morning in Christopher’s front garden in his pond. He said there were two guppies in the pond, but strangely they have gone missing somehow.  A few years ago, I would have not dream that I would be here in Sri Lanka, nor did I think I would be so curious as to watch myna … Continue reading Myna Bird

Endless love, see you down the road.” Leonard Cohen- “Letter to Marianne” Hallelujah https://mobile.twitter.com/LettersOfNote/status/796975123169509376   Maybe there’s a God above But all I’ve ever learned from love Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew ya And it’s not a cry that you hear at night It’s not somebody who’s seen the light It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah….

Selcouth

Selcouth (adj). The Origin of the word is Old English. It means strange and uncommon; the way you see things when you travel.  Everything seems different and foreign, and that is a good thing.  We travel to seek out the things we don’t see every day.  This is a photo I took on the cliffs above Langland Bay in Wales.   And even though its close to our home, it seems every time we travel there; this is a place where there is always something new and beautiful and different to see.  I love that.  Continue reading Selcouth

About Montmartre

We were in Montmartre again; there is a spirit there and it was if we were touched with life again. There, the gypsies were on the steps of Sacré Coeur as the temperature warmed up the day. We headed up to the top with our two little chihuahuas. Climbing with them we seemed to be a prominent feature following them up the steps. We were on everyone’s lips and they were adored by everyone.  We were finally back in Paris. It was summer. Love – amour – was our most popular subject for us. And Jim, my musician; where I … Continue reading About Montmartre

Thinking Out Loud…Again

Yes, there are days and even weeks when I have not written.  Even though I may have wanted to.  It does not mean that I was in the wrong place at the wrong time.  Or, perhaps maybe it means I was in the right place at the right time. Writing is a creative process; it has more than one kind of expression. It is more than one experience; writing is an explanation of things.  There is the part in me you could show the want to show the passion like in the furious writer who wants to create the output … Continue reading Thinking Out Loud…Again
