    Jill
    Jill During my continuing decluttering yesterday I found this poem dedicated to my mother, who brought us up and fed us with the minimum of possessions. Thought it appropriate to have on my wall at this time. LITTLE KNIFE AND YELLOW DUSTER. It was all she needed; our mother. A worn down, rounded blade with its yellowing ivory handle. Recycled from her childhood table: memories and communal history. With this precious knife she peeled and pared; chopped and stirred. It was sufficient unto itself. Memories and communal history. We three daughters were allowed to share that knife to string beans or chop mint for Sunday lunch in our mother's kitchen domain. A privileged task. Now, as I clear the clutter of my own too busy, traumatised life. As I grieve my losses in odd, wonderful, ritualistic stages, I wonder why I need so much. Now is the time for change and I am brushing myself down with a simple yellow duster.

    Hello, I've been most busy otherwise and I'm now more able and keen to resume my arts researching/reviewing, from this August 2015, onwards. This coincides with another evolving project which may give me subject matter to relate and discuss here ...

    I wouldn't want to make any pronouncements about the professionalism of anyone involved before the AAIB report comes out. There's an awful lot of heat and not much light at the moment

    Woolleybeans
    Woolleybeans All writing problems are psychological problems. Blocks usually stem from the fear of being judged. If you imagine the world listening, you’ll never write a line. That’s why privacy is so important. You should write first drafts as if they will never be shown to anyone. — Erica Jong
