David, you have an intuition here. I stayed in WSM about 30 years ago in that very hotel. My daughter was 6 years old and was taught to fold napkins by a white coated waiter, now sadly gone. Steep Holm also looked the same when I did my A-level field course on Brean Down in 1968. A definite trip down memory lane.

Wow, that’s lovely. Soothes the soul, if I had one.

Are we the unplayed pianos in old seaside towns, endlessly playing ourselves? I really enjoy the fact you use the word pianoforte, from a bygone age.

I love the fact that you are staring out to the Island (the past) which never changes, oh if only we could do that, or maybe not.

David.

Excellent piece of writing Adam.

I have for a while been impressed by an American artist called Childish Gambino, part of this piece puts me in mind of his recent video to a song entitled “This is America”

Your point is well made, I feel that in many ways due to the proliferation of mediocre art people seem unable to identify the important stuff. I think this is pushing artists into places where they feel the need to shock to get their point across.

This is nothing new I suppose, many artists now considered tame and mainstream were considered shocking and outlandish in their day.

This however does not address the need for substance as well as style, and as you rightly ask, who now can we trust to record our society with integrity?

Good poem Adam.

David.

PS, I was wondering as you used the word “Market” if you are making reference to The Agora, just an idea.

So true! Sometimes at the fork in the road we get stabbed no matter which path we choose. I am trying to learn to keep my eyes open so I can remember my way back
and not get lost on the path I chose.

this is a delightful poem, quite exquisite to say the least. I have a great love for all animals as I believe they possess a very pure love which we seldom find amongst ourselves.
