Such good news......I hate to bring a downer but I wonder if you all might hold a thought for another Mudcatter that many of you know. Mrrzy has been around the 'Cat for a long time, a Village regular. Some of you maight be aware that she lost her Mom recently, a holocaust survivor. What you might not know is that Mrrzy lost her father in the Lebanon embassy bombing in 1979.

On top of her Mom's death we now have the middle east exploding with the deaths of embassy personnel. Its hard to go through the anniversay of her Dad's death for her I know but to have this happening has got to bring back unwanted memories.

Hold a good thought for her. I sent her a note and you may or may not wish to do the same. She hasn't posted since the 8th.

Many thanks all you good people!

The stress of it all for the mummy and daddy! My memories of my seventh Birthday, a table of six little friends in grandma's garden, jam sandwiches, victoria sandwich cake and home made lemonade, lovely!!

Jane's birthday could not have been a happier day. The sun shone; we DID get to eat & drink alfresco. Cakes were cut, candles were blown out, brief speeches of thanks attempted, slightly hampered by tears. Fortunately, she has a large garden, because the number of people dropping by to wish her well must have topped sixty at least. A truly wonderful day for so many reasons. I would have loved for all of you to have been there.
                      Thank you for your Good Wishes,

The one person with whom I could've collaborated, writing songs, died from a brain tumour eight years ago.Almost certainly, one of the most talented & successful composers of film & TV Music of whom you've never heard. His name was Ian Hughes. I played guitar for him on many recording sessions, from simple demos for aspiring 'stars' to full-blown orchestral scores destined for the silver screen or TV. We did write one song together (I'm sure I've mentioned this in an earlier post). It was for the Eurovision Song Contest, but didn't make the cut. I still have our original, 'work in progress' cassette, but nothing on which to play it!
      Pete, it surprises me too! But I think I probably work better when I keep Poetry & Instrumental Music as separate entities. In truth, they both satisfy different needs within me.
      Maeve, you're so right. Handing over my 'poem-child' to the safe keeping of a, another would be something like taking a young son or daughter to their first day at school & letting them go in at the gates.
      It's beautifully warm & sunny here in London & the forecast is set fair for Sunday too, which is the best possible news because it's Jane's Birthday. It will be lovely if we can eat, drink & mingle, 'alfresco'.
      So good to read your comments...so good to feel you near.
      Wishing you all a sunny weekend too,
      With Love,
                     Nigel & Ann.

i was a poet before being a songwriter.the snippet i posted awhiles back became a song-my first,i think.i just set it to a medium fast 12 bar.i was a complete non singer at the time.i must admit some surprise that you have,nt done something set to song.be that as it may;you certainly compensate by some impressive instrumental music.

It's good to read your update, Nigel. Worlds of change for you, yes indeed!

As for "Lyrics & Poems, whilst sharing many similarities, are not the same thing at all"; I agree, yet I also suspect that some of your poems might well be "convertible" to excellent lyrics in the hands of a trusted fellow songwriter. Worth some thought, perhaps. It can be daunting to hand off your poem-child (over which you've lovingly labored/laboured.) It's also a delight when you find someone with whom you can collaborate to make a song.

Sail on!

I'm so pleased that my poem, 'Talk', struck a chord (no pun intended!) I've written short poems ever since I learned how to write. Usually just for Family, something to put inside a birthday or anniversary card, certainly not for public consumption. As an adult, I've discovered that poetry helps me express some of my deeper thoughts & feelings in ways that prose just can't match. Finding the courage to share some of the poems publicly was something I agonised over for months! I don't consider myself to be a 'Poet', I just enjoy (and sometimes need to), write poetry. What puzzles me is that I can't write a decent song lyric to save my life! What I have learned is that Lyrics & Poems, whilst sharing many similarities, are not the same thing at all. Thank you all for your generous praise. That you liked 'Talk' or it moved you, or you wanted to pass it on, leaves me feeling that writing it was time well-spent.
       Wendy, very glad to hear that Billy's treatment is progressing well. Our 'cuppa date' on 30th is still looking good from our end.
       Jane has had some of her drugs' treatment stopped, it being deemed unnecessary any more...that always feels like progress has been made. She remains on a closely monitored program, but the gaps between the tests & scans are gradually being extended...another sign of progress. In January of this year, we were practically planning her funeral. So much has changed in eight months.
      Hoist the Mainsail!
                                  With Love,
                                                 Nigel & Ann.

Nigel
that is so beautiful, wonderful words.How amazing to have been there, I wondered if I could get last minute tickets ,they are releasing them every morning. Billy and I have been watching every evening and think these games have been more meaningful than the Olympics! Truly inspirational people!

Billy had treatment three this week, halfway there!So far a little weary but apart from that no adverse effects! I trust Jane is still feeling well and that you and Ann are doing well! That cup of tea is on its way, I will pm you about the dates you gave me,(maybe the 30th?) just seeing how Billy gets on this week!

With love to the crew

'Talk' by Nigel Paterson © 2012

Don't talk to me of transfer fees, injured knees, teams that squeeze
The most from 'diving' to the ground, advantage seeking sometimes found.
Don't talk to me of sky-high wages, sordid pages, petty rages.
Managers whose jobs change weekly, sometimes leaving not so meekly.
Don't talk to me of bulging egos, where the tax goes, who the hell knows.
Referees who're not impartial, should there be a new 'field marshall'?
Don't talk to me of lifestyle choices, angry voices, flash Rolls-Royces.
Players rolling on the ground, 'miraculously', no injury's found.
          ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀
Talk to me of years spent training, when it's raining, body's paining.
Sacrificing loved ones, home life, husband, girl-friend, partner, new wife.
Talk to me of body defects, illness infects, teams that expect
Everyone to pull their weight for Country, Family & Mate.
Talk to me of limbless swimmers, palsied winners, young beginners.
Athletes who've inspired a Nation, disregarding birth's creation.
Talk to me of Super Human, super Man & super Woman
Talk to me, your eyes a'glisten,
Eventually the World will listen.

Good smiles indeed. Nothing new to report from the bridge.
Yesterday, Ann & I spent the day at the Paralympics, a wonderful & unforgettable experience. I felt compelled to write some lines in an attempt to pull together some very mixed emotions. I published this on FB yesterday, but hopefully it will get a wider audience here.

we been in devon for a week at a picture post card cottage that was'nt what it was cracked up to be, and in fact should have had a warning that it is unsafe for kids and disabled.so if anyone is tempted to book bear shola at upper ottery be warned.it is in a lovely part of the country however and we had a good time out and about.
at a petrol stn almost home i broke my ignition key.thankfully car still started and yesterday i went to vauxhall garage who were unable to fix it without the code[and would have charged a lot and took days if they did]but did suggest the locksmith across the road.sure enough he patiently extracted the end of the key and furnished me with a new one for £25.smiles and relief here too!

Smiles indeed.

For the record and for those it may aid in future:

I recently took two "talking watches" which I purchased from CNIB to a master watch and jeweller's shop. After a LOT of messing around by THREE people, including "the master" who was called to the shop by cell phone in this emergency, it was too much. I left but gave my phone number at leaving as they were "researching." I recorded the telephone message... "...your watches have only one battery each and if the watch isn't working properly it cannot be fixed and must be replaced."

Now, anyone with even a small brian would... nevermind... I went to another shop and they replaced both batteries in each watch in ten minutes and charged me about what would have been the same. I have two talking watches and three spare "in a pinch" batteries... and the address of a good watch guy.

So, talking watches got two batteries, no matter what someone who wants to sell you a watch says. >;-)

The afternoon of 23rd turned out to be one of those unexpected, serendipity moments. Here it is in a specially edited format: Bought Ann a 'good' (i.e. v. expensive!) watch several years ago...it needs repairing...visit jeweller who quotes £400.00...visit second jeweller who quotes £120.00...revisit first jeweller full of righteous indignation, but see the manager who just happens to be a watch specialist...manager inspects watch carefully & announces: "I can repair that myself now"...he disappears into their workshop at the back of the shop & reappears five minutes later with one, lookingasgoodasnew, watch...total cost: £0.00!
         Rounded off the day rather nicely! Mind you, there is probably one member of staff at the original jewellers whose next appraisal is not going to go too well!

Thank you all, once again. Yesterday certainly was a good news day.

Dean, the GCSE examinations are taken at age 16. Our Granddaughter will now go on to study for her 'A' (Advanced) Levels for the next two years, after which she will leave school & go on to University. School Students in England may leave school at age 16 if they choose, but most elect to stay on for a further two years. There are an increasing number of vocational courses in addition to the traditional, academic pathways.

The only 'fly in the ointment' yesterday were my ECG results. There are 'anomalies' which require further investigation. So, Echocardiogram on 3rd. Sept, followed by a referral to a Cardiologist. My GP assures me there doesn't appear to be a major problem, she just wants to dot all the 'is' & cross all the 'tees'. I find her reassurance reassuring!

I've just got off the phone after talking to Jane. Her test results confirm that nothing has changed...her condition remains stable, 'in stasis'. The cancer has not spread & where it had spread to is now referred to as 'minimal'. She also had a complete health check: bloods, BP, cardio etc, etc...all good & normal. Her Oncologist is very pleased with her progress. She continues with the drugs trial...the Doctors monitor & Jane lives her life with a renewed vigour. The best news we could have hoped for.
         Good News, second edition; we also heard from our eldest Granddaughter this morning that she has passed her GCSE exams with a stunning set of results...10 passes at 'A*' plus one 'A'. VPG: Very Proud Grandparents! All in all, 23rd August has turned out to be quite a day, (actually, just the morning...what does the afternoon hold?)

Lovely, funny, friendly posts to read this morning. Awoke feeling melancholy, not depressed, but very reflective with the following words running around in my head:

"The first school I attended is not there anymore,
But I'm still here.
The shop my Father bought my first guitar from is not there anymore,
But I'm still here.
My Parents are not here anymore,
But I'm still here.
My Dearest Friend & Music Collaborator is not here anymore,
But I'm still here.
My first Wife is not here anymore,
But I'm still here.
My Teacher Training College is not there anymore,
But I'm still here.
Many Friends & Colleagues are not here anymore,
But I'm still here.
My greatest Musical Influences are not here anymore,
But I'm still here.
I'm still here to live my life with Ann, my loving, caring Wife.
A life enriched by Friends afar who steer a ship by yonder star.
I know not when my life will end, but when it does, my Love I'll send
To all of You who've cared for me, true Friends for all eternity."

             With Love to You All,
                                           Nigel.

and I've had enough of scraping barnacles - they scrape back! - so now I'm mending sails and knitting new fishing nets while lurking and keeping an eye open for paddlers and bits of green stuff falling out of the crow's nest and thinking positive thoughts for you/us, everybody.
Love to all - great crew this! - best of the best.
