I would like to thank everyone who has followed my blogs and been kind enough to give such encouraging comments.

I am unable to continue posting due to the severity of the symptoms of hyper acuity and the ordinary sensory input of light, sound, taste, touch and smell  that is 'turned up' to such a degree that it has proved necessary to reduce any unnecessary information as much as possible because the frequency and duration of migraine headaches that occur as a result have become too much for me.

I have battled this condition for seven years and I am now exhausted.

I would ask my friends to try to understand and although anyone is still very welcome to read my blogs please do not leave any comments.

I wish everyone health and happiness and want you to know I enjoyed the short time I have had sharing some of my photographs and thoughts.

Nine Eleven

I have been absent from Blogger for some considerable time owing to ill health although I have been trying to improve my writing in the interim.

This date is such an important one for many people that I consider my friends across the pond I have tried to write a song for them. I write in quintuplet form now on photographs I have taken that give the visual counterpoint.

The blogger scene has changed so much I am unsure how successful I will be, as I have difficulty navigating 'the net' and more often than not trip up and fall flat on my face but I am determined to try.

The song is titled  '9.11. With love for everything free' and I wish all the friends that have supported me in the past on both sides of the pond my best wishes for the future.

Please note my website has been deleted because I was unable to keep it up. The domain name will cease in a few days.
I am unsure how to change the sidebar information also of moderating comments; I noticed there was one when I finally found my blog! I have absolutely no idea how to find the blogs I was following.
I will try to get these things sorted out but just posting this has exhausted me for the moment.

'I SIT ON THE WALL' From Visual Counterpoint

I sit on the wall and see
The miracle of the day,
I sit on the wall and watch
Wild horses enter the bay,
I sit on the wall and maybe
The old fisherman will come my way,
With tales from the open sea,
And love for everything free.

'A LOVE FOR EVERYTHING FREE' From Visual Counterpoint

Chamaemulum nobile

From Visual Counterpoint

Like Earth apple,
Scent as a pick-me-up,
Growing in the hole in my mind,

The photograph was taken on a road from Stromness, Orkney, where wild Camomile plants grow.

On the Banks of Green Willow

'AFTER THE RAIN' From Visual Counterpoint

Rain, sun’s rays fall
To warm the heart again,
Those who love butter will then say,
Yes, please.

The title is borrowed from music composed by George Butterworth who tragically died in the Battle of the Somme, World War I.
Let us never forget.

'FURNACE' From Visual Counterpoint

Fire burn,
Furnace intense
Meltdown nails and barbed wire
Fashion brand new shoes for four feet
Walk on.
New dance steps learned for the journey
Home never felt so good

One fine Day
From Visual Counterpoint
Forget; forget the blood, tears and sweat

From Visual Counterpoint

Don’t bury ugly memories,
The pain will return,
As surely as a dandelion,
Think of beauty and light the flame
Burn the root and add the ash
To compost spread
Over newly ploughed earth.
