this was going to be sound effects*

but instead it's a train of thought**
.
(*I was sitting by the river in the dark, watching the water flow downstream [watching the ripples in the mirror of the surface] and I could hear all these sounds, which I was going to list for you - I saw an episode of Father Ted recently [well, actually I've seen them all, because I purchased a box set and watched them back to back for many evenings] [yes! I worked out how to use the DVD player] [I digress] and Dougal had a "BBC Sound Effects" album, and - oh, I'm rabbiting on, I'll get back to the point - and I realise what I couldn't hear was the river: it was silent)
.
(**I saw something interesting on dave's blog [not just the one thing, it's all interesting, but one thing really really really really interested me] and I tried googling it and got nowhere - apart from being totally sidetracked by what I did find) (which follows)

POSTSCRIPT: I now know - thanks, dave - what I was trying to search for, and so I found what I wanted (it helps - doesn't it to know what you are looking for, most of the time I only have the vaguest of ideas), but if I'd known that originally, would I have ended up at HOPE as I did? life is curious, eh? here is what I wanted to find originally:

You'll have to take yourself off on a little holiday to Mourne.

I, like the view said...

is it Tuesday?

Anonymous G said...

It's Tuesday. Sipping coffee LATE in the morning because I had some sort of weird medical test done earlier. Which, I'm finding, is allowing me to enjoy this coffee all the more!

What I came here to say...

is that...

I love the way you create art with your words.

Have I mentioned how I enjoy the sights and sounds and feelings I get from reading you?

And it makes me smile to see you blooming?

(I "met" you when you were wilting and I'm lifted by your growth)

there you have it.

Happy Tuesday!
- is it still Tuesday where you be?? -
