WELCOME

This will be about my views on what it takes to put a three dimensional world onto a two dimensional surface. With a lot of digressing.
Don't forget to leave a comment, or a question if you have one, below the post. Thanks.

NIAGARA RISING

When I read that the UK's Poet Laureate was a woman, I was curious, and discovered that she's all that and more. I am now a fan of Carol Ann Duffy's.

This is from "THE WORLD'S WIFE"

MRS. RIP VAN WINKLE

I sank like a stone
into the still, deep waters of late middle age,
aching from head to foot.

I took up food
and gave up exercise.
It did me good.

And while he slept
I found some hobbies for myself.
Painting. Seeing the sights I'd always dreamed about:

The Leaning Tower.
The Pyramids. The Taj Mahal.
I made a little watercolour of them all.

But what was best,

what hands-down beat the rest,

was saying a none -too-fond farewell to sex.

Until the day
I came home with this pastel of Niagara
and he was sitting up in bed rattling Viagra
