Ruth - The Blarney Stone - now I know how Bats feel, hanging on to cave walls. How do they do it without a pilot's licence nearly bumping into everything. 😕 Blessings. P

Hi Ruth, thank you so much for commenting on 'Strangeness and Experience'. I love that you picked up on the 'walking antennas' line in particular. What were you thinking at Yoga? Just mulling the sensitivity of some people? Either way, thank you and keep writing 😃 P.S. I've just given you a follow on Twitter.

Ruth, thank you for the lovely Christmas message. I'm not out much into Manchester, but I do think that I may one day really 'see' you. Assuming you're still in this area, of course.

Your natural warmth of personality is a WOL bonus to us all. Happy New Year!

Hi Ruth and since you ask Reiki was certainly one of these and various other forms of meditation following my NDE some years ago, the latter I think might have been a spur although matters of the subconscious have often helped me formulate my poetic style both on line as well as hard copy. 👍

They say Greeting Cards are out of date
obsolete in this fast-paced world
but homemade cards are still special
when made by children
in some of their first Acts of Creation.

And sometimes frogs end up as bookmarks when they get squashed flat. And cats like playing leap frog with them as well. That's when Quasimodi rings the bells - and plaintively he yells for Esmerelda. Thanks for your comments Ruth, always good to share a laugh. P.

Not to mention 'O'Reilly' as your surname!

I was just dropping off to sleep two nights ago, when that thought hit me. All I could think was: 'Cynthia, you're an idiot!' and I gave myself no argument.

Liked both your poems in Printed Words Ruth

Never Settled, Never Serious

The tourist seemed like a lover
who did not care at all
liked the link up with the trunk to the suitcase
and the circus to the clown
the lion tamer watching
maybe fate to reel him in
when all the travelling is done.

Hi Keith, no I'm not flaming, it was then and not now now. ?

Hi Jason, I think 'moving on' and scorch-marks says it .

Hi Ruth, I think the 'positive spin' echos Kieth's point, not wrong just behind my shoulder as I turn away.

Thank you all xxx

What is the point that Don, Adam and Graham are hoping to achieve with their negative simplicity?
Am i losing something?
I appreciate the points from Ruth.

Surely Chrystel has a valid point.
Why the negativity folks?

Tommy

psps. I think that I may have missed some of the finer points made by Don, Adam and Graham. Apologies if I have.

Ruth, re: 'Schizophrenia', the 'first/real' me has always loved ice cream and still does. It was the 'secondary me' who had the aversion. I was very fortunate that I did not get totally 'freaked' about the 'second personality'. Perhaps it was a kind of innate arrogance to refuse 'her' credibility/access. I had blindly heard of such situations, but had no experience with such 'manifestations' whatsoever. None.It was a very scary time.

I so 'feel' for anyone afflicted in this way. It must be awful. Both for the victim, and the people associated, whoever they might be. But the whole experience made me a far more sympathetic person, and open to people's experiences that often seem to be 'bizarre'. Who can presume 'to know'!

How kind of you to 'scope' some poems from a while back. And then to comment. Thanks!

I live in Sale, Greater Manchester. After being so ill for months, when I finally took a tram ride into the city this late spring, I couldn't believe the alterations in the skyline - the construction of high rises! I felt as though I were in a Star Wars movie set! I really was shocked. Almost intimidated.Are you also aware like this? Or is it just me?

'To be a writer' is fab. I do appreciate 'short' as well as 'long'. Although you well might wonder.
