November the Twelfth………………Books…….Always enjoyed, appreciated and admired…….Mike’s re-reading ‘Sirens of Titan’ by Kurt Vonnegut……Sanity in an insane world…….And a new book arrived…..’Beasts Before Us’…..About the origin and evolution of mammals……Might give some clues as to how we got ourselves into the state we’re in!

November the Thirteenth……….Is it on the beach?…..Or in the Pier Arts Centre?……..

November the Fourteenth…………..Goose Barnacles…….Not to be mistaken for Barnacle Geese……

November the Fifteenth………………………Found a round yesterday……..Placed it today…………..Another bit of garden art!

November the Sixteenth…………..A rosy sunrise over Shapinsay………..

November the Seventeenth………….Hurrah! …..Our ‘Help Musicians’ Christmas cards arrived…….Good timing…..Drawn by Jackie Morris….Including a few of my favourite things…… Bears&Dogs&Birds&Hares&….. https://www.helpmusicians.org.uk/

November the Eighteenth………………Happy Birthday to you….Happy Birthday to you……Happy Birthday dear Michaeeeeeel….Happy Birthday to youuuuuuu……”

Age shall not wither himnor custom stale his infinite variety.’

I have to admit that it’s getting harder and harder to find something to brighten each day……There isn’t much light….The weather is atrocious….The world lurches from one expression of madness to the next.

But – we’ll persevere…..we’ll keep on, keeping on. 

Like Scarlett O’Hara said …”Tomorrow is another day.”

  1. Thanks for the reminder about the Jackie Morris Help Musicians cards. They’re a delight in so many ways…
