Haven’t posted for ages as I’ve been away and work’s been insane… However, having just returned from Florida whose beaches are now threatened by the BP oil spill, I couldn’t resist posting this - who would have thought such prosaic ingredients could have a magical result?
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.
My monitor decided I was overworking it on Saturday 22nd May and went on permanent holiday. We replaced it this morning and will assidously switch off the new baby when it’s not in use. Save yourself the trouble of replacement and save some energy as well - switch off your monitors and TVs at the mains rather than leaving them on standby!
So, I’m blogging again but will leave for the US (San Francisco first, then Florida) on Wednesday - no Firewalls there but finding the time to blog on a business trip always baffles me…
