Welcome home. In case I’m off Caliban Gallivanting when you get in I wroted you this note and stuck ‘im on the fridge. There is no beer left, sorry.
I’ll introduce you to the neighbours but first you must must go read Ebby’s beautiful penguin poem, again, if you already have.

So, to the neighbours. Narziss is an absolute gentleman and scholar (and an excellent photographer) and has been a constant friend even though I suspect I embarrass him on occasion with my roughneck ways and excessive bounciness but he is far too cultured and composed and cool to complain.

Ingsoc is a countryman of yours. He is also a very smart and provocative writer. I am sure you two will have many interesting discussions (debates) (arguments?) to the great entertainment of all. Feel free to fire away and at will, he is one of the few people around here smart enough to know that the point of a discussion is to discover the truth rather than prove it, and as a result he has my utmost trust and respect.

Oceanshaman is an interesting character. At first I took him for an old hippy as to my old punk, which is cool because it was reflected in two completely different Taoisms, his, I think, is a practical calming unifying thought to ease a troubled life whilst mine, as you know, is just an excuse for laziness and doing “what though what wilt,” to quote an old and departed friend. There is always wonderful music on Oceanshaman’s stereo, much of which I hadn’t heard before which means, my dear, that I spend a lot of time there.

Crafty Green Poet is a wonderful lady who has also been a great support and constant friend. She is the first ever person to publish two of my doodlings and as such has an eternal place in my heart. They are in her Bolts Of Silk and I am flattered because the company I am keeping there honours me far beyond my capabilities.

And you’re back! And I feel full of life again, anticipation, (one of my favourite words because it is one of my favourite things) and these are a few of my favourite things mary poppins,

  1. Can I say hello and introduce myself GRIN? I hope you had a good trip.

    And Paul, it’s a two-way support system…..I’d still be churning out what-I-did-with-my-suburban-day prose if it weren’t for you (though never Ascot ladies, never that — I’m an old indie chick).

  2. Nearly back… nearly. Will soon be delving a-merry.
