at home with ann

I simply had to share this song with you.  It’s called Annie (but honest I would love it even if it was called another name, and no, the lyrics bear no relevance to me, only the name).   Still, I love it love it love it to bits and I can’t get it out of my head, not that I want to.   I know he’s not to everyone’s taste, but imho there was not one bad song on his Back to Bedlam album, and his latest All the Lost Souls is even better. 


Well, I’ve been meaning to write a post all week.   I’ve scribbled notes of little funnies and bits and bobs I wanted to share, a couple of poems too and most importantly I wanted to say a big big thank you to Eric for bestowing me with an awesome award. roar.jpg Eric is a great poet and has a fascination with the cosmos.  I try to understand his wonderful words, but confess that when it comes to science it’s all Chinese to me, but not his poetry.   I feel kinda guilty for getting an award for my poetry because it’s undisciplined and follows no format, it’s just what pours from my heart and soul, which is exactly how Eric writes.   Thank you Eric.  I believe I’m supposed to pass this on to five others; one I would definitely honour already has it, but I don’t believe I can think of only five others.  I shall have to think about this, but deep down I feel everyone who voices meaningful thoughts and articulates their feelings in prose deserves this too. 


I seem to have done something to myself.   I’ve carried on regardless hoping if I ignore it, it will go away.   I’ve hardly been at home all week and work has been chaotic and manic, but I am very very uncomfortable sitting at my computer for more than a few minutes at a time… which is why I haven’t been around posting or commenting (or lurking) either.  

Everyday I expect and hope to jump out of bed feeling great, but so far no such luck.  I’m sure it’s nothing serious, but whatever it is, it… hurts 😥

I don’t want to be a moaner, just thought I’d let you know why I’ve not been here.  I’m gonna dose myself up with whatever I can lay my hands on.  I don’t have an extensive medicine cabinet; I’m not made that way (although I do have quite an extensive liquor cabinet, which may be a better idea, or some analgesic and alcohol together may do the trick… I’ll hold that thought!) 


How could I not post a little bit of what I fancy since they say a bit of what you fancy does you good,  so here’s a bit of Bobby Bobby to my ab fab fav Bon Jovi… oh my goodness what an awesome combination and the song is perfect.  It comes from Bon Jovi’s album Have a Nice Day.   Since I’m plugging music, their latest Lost Highway is also fantastic… every track a winner.


AND ANOTHER WELL DESERVED BIG BIG PLUG whilst I’m in the plugging mood, but I would do it anyway because, woooooooooo hoooooooooo today I got delivery of my ab fab fav Brian’s debut novel Real Magic.  cover.jpgBrian, thank you, thank you, thank you so so much.   I know with all my heart that this will not, and cannot, be Brian’s ‘one and only’ because his writing is simply getting better and better.  We are working on a collaboration at the moment; whether it ever sees the light of day, I have no idea, but it’s great fun trying.  It’s still at the early stages, so no arguments… yet! 

For those who enjoy poetry, you must read Brian’s verse which,  like his book, is real magic.

Right, now I really am gonna take my medicine and I really do hope I get by to visit you all before I go away. I shall also try and post something before I go to Israel next week.

In the meantime I hope ya all had a lovely thanksgiving and all my good wishes to you and yours spill over to the weekend too and Shabbat Shalom

the loves of my life

at the touch of love, everyone becomes a poet ~~~ plato

thank you…

... to everyone whose pictures and videos I have borrowed; if anyone would like theirs to be removed, please tell me and I shall be happy to do so

all words here are mine ~ I’ll tell you when they’re not!

from long ago

in case I forget what day of the week it is
