Rethabile has encouraged me today by linking to my poem, 'Life's Work'. Rethabile is also an editor of the international, online poetry magazine Canopic Jar - worth a look and also as somewhere to submit your poetry.
The musky smell of the plum blossom at the bottom of our drive now greets me as I set off on my walk to work. Or to catch the bus into town as I did today; actually two buses so that I could visit my daughter in Belleknowes. I could have had the car, but forgot I needed it and when Robert set off for work in the morning (early) I was still too wrapped in sleep to want to leap out and drop him off. Having the one car is sometimes a hassle, but mostly it means I get to walk lots and that we are doing our bit for the environment. The bus service is pretty good, but if it was even better maybe more people would use it and their car less. In a perfect world.
