Smiles to all! Weekend once more!

Up early. Out early. Supplies bought. Art supplies, that is. And I have no idea what I’m going to do with them… just went on a pick and mix rampage and bought anything that jumped out at me! I have two tiny tiny segmented containers, two sparkly glass candle holders, a two-handled vase, some feathers, a glue gun with glue sticks, a sharp knife, some … Continue reading Smiles to all!

Wordle: Dark Thoughts

Thoughts spiral Peck and chip Nag and itch List and last Settle fast Or linger Throughout life If allowed to run Some are fun But the whole of them? The total sum?

With me, they … Continue reading The Place of W

The Pinocchio Effect

Decades ago when I was just a wee boy, knee high to a grasshopper, and in total awe of everything that was around me, I made a monumental decision. OK, I wasn’t exactly knee high, getting on for eight, nine or possibly ten years old, and the awesomeness of some things had started to shine a little less brightly thanks to a few ‘others’ who … Continue reading The Pinocchio Effect


Through the mists, the storms, the turbulence of time They have stood Mysterious relics of a bygone age Backbone, support and strength For themselves and others Created by ancient hands As a message perhaps For hope Togetherness Connectedness Solitude and Solace Celebration of Solstice And an offering of the land From the land To the land Hands and minds long gone Stories long forgotten Legends … Continue reading Megalith
