First, my thoughts go to Linn and Tom right now. The sure knowledge that time is finite is a very tough corner to turn. Many here have had to turn that corner and when it is between the you and the person you chose to share your life with............All my best and most heartfelt cares go to them now. We love you both Linn and Tom.

And now.............for something completely different........

The 'Cat is pissing me off no end lately. Slow, unreliable, and sometimes just non-existent, it wins the trifecta of crappy websites. I've had a cable modem for years and my current computer is very fast and powerful and yet this damn site which I have spent so many hours with for so many years is barely useable! I have lost posts recently and most times I just get tired of waiting for the damn thing. If I post to one thread it is probably the only one I can get because if it is the second post I make, well, just fuckit!

Well I feel better now! My best to all of you operating on the assumption this post takes and if it doesn't then ta' hell with it and I'll try again some other time. Of course you won't know that because this didn't load! If this site keeps giving it to me as it has can someone send some Vaseline?

Love y'all!!!

Hello all.

Some lovely warm expressions here by and/or for Spaw, Wendy, Nigel & Ann, Janie, Frogprince, and others. I am uplifted.

Thank you all.

Funding approved for my biologic meds. Going with Golimumab. Waiting for the home health care company to arrange delivery and nurse visit to show me how to do my first injection. Please be soon.

Pain and stiffness everywhere is pretty bad but I am still able to go to work. It is the overwhelming fatigue and brain fog which are the most difficult to get past. I am in work by 8am but not fully mentally functioning until 10.30. And wiped by 8pm.

Still, most weekends I have been chipping bit by laborious bit at organising, cleaning and ironing. Even a little accomplishment boosts my spirits.

Different art, Nigel, but I used to have a darkroom where I spent many a lonely hour developing films and producing prints. That all changed when they made a digital camera worth using (some of the early ones were awful) and it was game over for "analogue" photography IMO.

Digital vs. analogue photography argument is still raging in some quarters but with my Canon EOS1000D and Epson Stylus Pro printer I can produce great prints in minutes rather than hours in a non-chemical-laden atmosphere. Mind you, I still fill sketchbooks with notes and doodles!

Score away: the tools you use are secondary to the finished product, which I'm sure will be well worth listening to.

Pete, Gnu, Janie, Sandra....hugs all round & a kiss on both cheeks (old Family tradition!)
         The sanctuary of Music calls....it's times like this when I remember the 'good old days' of manuscript paper, a piano, some HB pencils, an eraser & a flask of tea. Truth to tell, I had to be dragged, kicking & screaming into the digital age (Thank you, Mr.Gates). My 'digital sanctuary' has, however, a 'reality' about it (if that's not a contradiction in terms) that sheets of quarto scoring paper never had, so, back to the Mac.
         Voyage well, my Dear Friends.

my dad often comments that my mum never found out who her "real" dad was ,only finding out late in life that the man she knew as dad was not so, biologically.
I usually comment that the man who done the job was the "real" dad.

Some exceptional posts here. Janie's & Amergin's to name but two. Deeply personal, deeply moving, creating a plethora of images & emotions.
         Janie, you wrote: "....as you birth more fine music....". Those six words go right to the heart of why I compose. For me, it is almost literally like giving birth to new life, in the hope that one or two pieces might just outlive me & be remembered & performed after I'm gone.
       Some of you know already that Jane was my Step Daughter. When Ann & I decided to marry, Jane & her Sister agreed that 'step' was not a word they liked. To them I was 'Nigel' (Introduced to friends as: 'our Mum's husband') & 'Grandad' as the Grandchildren gradually appeared on the scene. For that reason, I've always referred to Jane & her Sister as my daughters & for all practical purposes, that's just what they are.
       My first Wife, (who I lost to breast cancer) & I were unable to have children, so, as you can imagine, Ann's two daughters were a golden gift, swiftly followed by six, Golden Grandchildren.
         At the risk of sounding maudlin & sentimental, the pieces I write could be construed as my 'Children', which perhaps explains why I wrote: "...one or two pieces might just outlive me & be remembered & performed after I'm gone..."
         I've been wanting to write about this for ages, but my courage failed me. It was an emotional step too far, but, for a multitude of reasons, now feels the right time to reveal a part of my life that has remained unspoken of for too long.
                                    With Love & comforting sense of relief & release,
                                                                      Nigel
                                                                      xxxx

it is interesting....the other day, I was on a friend's fb page....local Irish musician Colleen Raney. A friend of hers was talking about how her best friend's son was killed...a week after his 32nd birthday. he was a popular man. He was the bass player, a vocalist, and songwriter of a popular Irish band called the Calvinist Band. He was killed in a car wreck in Bantry, Cork. His organs helped 9 people...including his heart which was flown to Dublin. Her story inspired me....and so I asked for more information, explaining what I do....and I ended up writing a poem....

I showed it to her...and she loved it...showed it to his mum...and showed it to his bandmates...who all posted it on various fb pages...and so it's been going around Ireland. I made a video of me reading it...the poem references the Memphis Belle which was the focus of one of their songs...the video has also making it's rounds...

I've had many people thank me...including the mum...and it just blows me away, that my words can make a difference in their time of grief....I had not heard of Taidhg Burke Neff before his story was mentioned on fb. so my words have filled the sails for a family (and friends and fans) I never met...I am astounded....

A much lovelier autumn than had been predicted. I've been traveling a lot at different elevations, plus have the pleasure of driving through considerable mileage of two lane country roads throughout the week. Mid September through mid October the fields and roadsides from the Piedmont of NC up through the tidewater and coastal plains of Virginia and Maryland, and the lower elevations of the Alleghenies were lovely with bidens, perennial sunflowers of assorted species, white and lavender wild asters, purple New York Ironweed, more late goldenrod species than any one person could key out, perennial ageratum, assorted large seed pods with their interesting shapes adorned by seeds with white parachutes, and the distinctive and early scarlet of sumac leaves. The trees blanketing the southern mountains of West Virginia in mid October were breath-taking on my way back south from Mom's, even on a cloudy day. The last two weeks here on the NC Piedmont, on my daily drive have been equally lovely. My yard is cleared of leaves at the moment, but until late afternoon, I had a carpet of many colors out there from fallen leaves of maple, oak, dogwood, hickory and wild cherry on a windy weekend. The squirrels have already eaten most of the red berries on the dogwoods, but they were pretty while they lasted. The berries on the nandinas and holly are only preferred as survival fare by squirrels and birds and will last until at least mid January. On both species, the berries are ruddier by the day, and will be bright red soon enough to bring delight to the eye just when it is most appreciated in an otherwise subtle winter landscape.

Each fall now, I am reminded of the brilliant and terrifying beauty of the structure of my sister's emaciated face and body during her long dying time, of the vibrancy and depths of her deep and stark brown eyes. I remember the suffering, but also just as readily now recall, after all these years, the beauty and affirmations of love and connectedness, of exquisitely joyful times during her last two months where there was the joy of being fully present and fully together, immediately with no holds barred. Like the dogwoods, she up and went brilliant in the premature autumn of her life, and brought the rest of us along with her.

I'm in tears just now - but they are not tears of anguish. Feeling sorrow, yes, but the tears bring heart's ease, as does writing this and sharing these memories of sorrow and joy. I feel the gentle rocking of the water under the hull of the boat as we set out from harbor, and love the sound of the wind in the sails.

A little local (to me) landlocked chanty.... Beauty Lives

we may be getting old, wendy, but I like to think that we can think critically on music, but its nice to hear ga ga is a nice person.
a stage persona is I guess deceptive. I was watching some of the Hendrix documentary last night. now he was definitely a brilliant muso and he did not need all those stage excesses. and off stage he is said to have been shy and sensitive.

How funny Pete, if we had known they could have met up, my daughter is best friends with the exec Producer Beth. They used to work together at a production company years ago, and Dermot is a Colchester boy so they all know each other from years ago!

My daughter said Ga ga is a lovely person, but I really didn't get the Bridget Jones knickers?? Am I getting old? No already there! Hoot.

Our wedding anniversary today, 26 years, so going out to dinner and my daughter and grandchildren are " nanny" sitting. Seems life has gone full circle since she used to baby sit my daughter.

ChanteyLass is obviously quite right as to blood sugar readings being done differently. Much differently. Here, 22 would mean so low that you might not live long, and 9 would be so low that you probably wouldn't live long.

If you put enough cream and sugar in tea, I can enjoy it. Otherwise my British genetic background is too far behind me for that stuff. Coffee I drink either black or with a little cream.

Well, in my Clan it is. Them there little elves what make the Tetly tea and dance around with bells on their feet? We are required to crush them like bugs. And that there Red Rose "Only available in Canada you say?" crap? Well, a story is called for...

Many moons ago, Mum, Dad and I travelled to Ontario, visiting friends and relatives along the way. We landed at Aunt Rose (yeah, I know) and Uncle Al's house. No, this is the stry about the tea, not about the Rattle Snakes, tho that's a good one. Aunt Rose made tea after supper. Red Rose tea (BTW, she had red hair). My old man took a sip and, in his usual demure, shy manner, asked Aunt Rose, "What the hell is that?" She told him. "How many bags did you use?" She told him. Up and out to the trunk of the car for a box of 60 gauze bags of KC. He handed it to her and said, "I can't drink dishwater." You shoulda seen the look on Uncle Al's face when she promptly made tea for my old man. She wore the pants in the family so he was absolutely gobsmacked that she complied! You shoulda seen the look on her face when he asked if he could try a cup of real tea. Tension? Knife? Nay. At least a chainsaw. I could go on but youse all get the pic, I'm sure.

Hmmm... I have shortbreads in the freezer. And real tea too.

My vote for the ship's biscuit is chocolate covered coconut macaroons (Mrs Crimbles). And a cup of TyPhoo tea.

Yum yum.

The posts on page 55 are some of the most playful I've read for a while. Somehow, we manage to get the balance just about right...serious when we need to be, but never averse to the callings of our inner child. It's one of the many aspects that makes our thread the sanctuary it has become,
                  Much Love to You All,
                                                 Nigel.

laptopgnu "Is it King Cole Orange Pekoe from Sussex, nb.ca? I am rather particular about my tea." My bad.

A song... can't sing. Just woke up. Need tea. You start and I'll mumble along a bit later.
