RIPPING UP THE CARP

Had a monster day out at Curborough fisheries with my brother Jason, catching monster carp on light tackle… cheap 8ft rods, 5lb breaking strain line, and a lot of gumption. My monster took me around the lake four times before I could land him.

Great day out.

DROVE OUT TO CASTLE RING NR CANNOCK, AN ANCIENT PRE-ROMAN SITE IN THE HOPE I COULD REMEMBER WHERE I LEFT MY GIFSTOL (GIFSTOL WAS THE KING’S TREASURY IN DANISH/ SAXON/ANGLE LORE) GOLD 1500 YEARS AGO, BUT AS I GOT LOST THREE TIMES ON THE WAY THERE, BECAUSE THE LANDSCAPE HAD CHANGED SO MUCH SINCE THE LAST TIME  WENT, FIFTY YEARS AGO, I REALISED THE IDEA OF FINDING STUFF FROM A PREVIOUS LIFETIME WAS PRETTY FORLORN. FREYA ENJOYED THE WALK THOUGH. FIRST TIME IVE TAKEN THE TWO DOGS SEPARATELY FOR WALKS.

ELLIE HAS A HIP PROBLEM, COMMON IN LABRADORS, SO I THOUGHT WALKING HER ON HER OWN MIGHT MAKE HER LESS EXCITED AND LESS COMPETITIVE, AND THEREFORE NOT MAKE HER SO LAME. WORKED PRETTY WELL, AND AS A BONUS IT DID LESS DAMAGE TO MY BACK.

DANCING TO THE MUSIC OF TIME

IMG_4064

DANCING TO THE MUSIC OF TIME

DEDICATED TO MY FRIEND KARA WHO REMINDED ME…

For half a century you took me dancing,

cheek to cheek, flamenco flushed,

tango tight and taut,

We screamed at the world

and pirouetted to spin away

the normality.

And when we held on tight

two as one… we flushed away the world!

You walked me through the drugs

and the beyond world,

You painted me as rebel

and I you as goddess.

Yet we never made anything,

We dreamed of exporting our love,

making the world better…

But in reality we only cared for each other,

Our dance goes on,

your so light on your feet…

so airy.

LOST MY MIND

2 - mrrobot_s3_e10_elliot_01_1920x1080

In a lucid dream,

I deliberately left my mind

In an elephant,

just for safe keeping.

And then I awoke,

And couldn’t convince myself,

That reality existed.

The logical construct,

We all died in 2011…

And this is just

the meanderings of an unbalanced soul.

Of course, the reality of the soulscape

Is that time and space do not exist,

So this expanding universe

which my mind has created

can go on for  infinity.

Pretty scary revelation,

Not sure that I can return

from this pinnacle of pomposity…

It’s nice being an elephant though.

 

OH TO BE BACK TO THIS TIME LAST YEAR.
