I was wondering why I couldn't comment, then realised I wasn't signed in - Is it age or just life but I forgot that I remembered who he/she was - I like the peace and quiet - I crave a minimalist tranquility - I like reading Rumi -

"If I hold you in my heart, you'll wither; Become a thorn if I hold you in my eyes. No, I'll make a place for you within my soul instead, So you'll be my love in lives beyond this life"

Ramblings 498

2020-02-23
Ah yes, that eternal minefield of what to share and what to keep private - glazed eyes or an insincere comment - maybe we all should learn to listen more - sadly empathy is not taught in schools

[07 Sep - 19 Oct 2019] - PoetBay's at a major crossroad (Update 7)

2019-09-08
If I can help I will, although time is limited here for me - if I could make a suggestion, could you devise a way that for people like me who live in out of the way places - being neither european or american can actually pay the subscription, - the Channel Islands does not support your current pay and as I am a dinosaur and refuse to have a credit card. I would love to help if I can in any way as this site means a lot to me and I have made many friends who have supported me through my ill health

Aging

2018-04-06
I don't really mind aging as such, I do dread the thought of mind and body leaving the essence of me - Remember, you are beautiful whatever direction the body may go - what is inside is what really matters, well written

Schism

2016-06-12
The great divide! having lived in Belfast I know all too well, some friends had to keep their relationship secret for years, they did eventually marry and move to America, where sadly some years later, went their separate ways - love the rhymes and the innocence of this
