Biography

Live in Tuscany and love it, also Sardinia. Enjoy reading and writing. Love dogs, good food and cooking for friends. Also going to museums and art exhibitions, used to work in a London art gallery many years ago. Really love travelling when possible. Not very often, alas, but have managed to get to India and Myanmar, after reading William Dalryple's books. Used to work as designer for our small family firm making women's clothes, but gave this up when everyone started outsourcing. Then recycled as English teacher working freelance.

Samples

Creek at San Teodoro - Sardinia Where else can you watch the red people wading knee deep in copper green against a lapis sky? Where else can you find white sea lilies trembling wind teased next to azure sea holly? Nowhere else. (The red people are what the Sardinians call the flamingos)

For some reason WOL stopped sending me notifications
and therefore I did not get yours.
Don't know why. Has it happened to YOU?

A spider patiently waits and waits
to see what comes to take the bait,
when caught in trap, it's victim hates
that curiosity drew it to its fate.

Your words ring true
no more enchiladas,
after my braless remarks
I'm now a pinata!

the question is
why a small j for Jennifer
and a capital M
for Malden?
something is afoot here, some secret code?

yes, the enchiladas were delicious.
It will probably be another year
before i see any more.

Where would men be
without the influence of women?
Without women
men would be uncivilized
and...
hungry.

Thanks for liking my Drinker poem Jennifer. I hope you're enjoying the site at the moment, I'm afraid I'm not. It feels to me like a graffiti site; I've said it now. Inspiration is hard to find.

All the best, Ray

it was all my fault.

Thanks for the comments on 'Blood Brothers In Arms' Jennifer. My dad was in Burma in the 2nd WW and fought alongside the Gurkas - he always said they were the most loyal, hard-working and ferocious fighters that you could wish for. He had a saying 'Good Old Johnny Gurka', I still remember that fondly
Glad you liked the poem

Hello Jennifer - I was interested in your comment about
Brexit elsewhere.
Peace in Europe? Don't forget the violence and death in
Serbia etc - sorted out by NATO, the real preservers of
peace in Europe....whilst the EU likes to pose as such.
I voted to leave because over a long lifetime I was aware
early on that a policy of deceit and want of truth was
being pursued after the original Common Market vote,
aided/abetted by those sent to our own Parliament acting
ultra vires and keeping the actual intentions and progress
(check> Common Market/European Economic Community/
European Community/European Union (NOTE the LAST
political identity) from the British people OR their chance
to vote on what had been/was being done in their name.
The understanding of what was done came only when
the loss of border controls offered the reality of just how
much had been handed to foreign influence and control,
with our own government facing defeat after defeat by
a political entity that had become a federal creation of
recent dictatorships and tyrannies busy putting their own
interests first (and no surprise there), while the more
incompetent and fragile economies saw us as a "milch
cow" for very welcome funds, obtained above and below board!
I recall driving around a pre-EU Europe and faced no
difficulties or impediment. Indeed, the enjoyment was
negotiating borders and complying with the variety of
customs and demands met by this traveller. It was an
ADVENTURE, and returning to this self-governing
offshore island nation was its own reward!
Sincerely,
MC

Thanks for your comments on my poem.
After reading all of the comments on YOuR poems
I no longer remember
which poem it was you commented on
or what you said.
But I am certain
it was a good comment
or else I would not have felt the need
to comment.
