Maybe you’re no longer interested,
reading tea leaves, smoke signals in exhausts,
blind, groping roads and high ropeways to lost,
there’s nothing above the clouds once they’re crested.
Stand by, stand firm on this patch you’ve wrested -
there will be time later to count the costs,
the stuff to keep apart, the stuff to be tossed,
the decades, like matryoshka dolls, are nested.
I'm back and in all the hullabaloo of travelling I'd forgotten about the A-Z, the sign up opened on the 1st. It's a landmark year, ten years for a blog event is quite epic by any standard. Have to record my admiration and appreciation for the team. Signed up but not even halfway there - so far,2019 hasn't been one serene retreat let's say. Am beginning to panic. Just a little. But that's all part of the A-Z. Who else will be there I wonder?
