Swishy-tailey, me peek, silly she,
The mugwump bare-skin two-peddy.
Why she not eating
Why she just waving
Oh-boy yellow-sweety thing to me?
Coo-Mummy say, me thinky much.
Growly-tummy say, why fussy much?
“Silly two-peddy she, God bless-bless to you.”
Swishy-tailey, yellow-sweety, woo-hoo!
Yum.🍌

Pigeon Talk

O, ten times faster Venus’ pigeons fly
To seal love’s bonds new-made, than they are wont
To keep obliged faith unforfeited! 

–Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice

Jude’s Ponderous Thought this week:

THE MUSIC OF MY SOUL

~Write about your favourite musical instrument(s) and the things it/they make you feel~

The first drawn note says she’s a player. It may be a fiddle or a violin.

She either makes you hold your breath or draw it in.

Stings your brain with brandywine or stretches your heart till nothing’s outside it.

Classical is like geometric chemistry, lovers’ hands touching.

Bluegrass frees your feet to where the stars are spinning.

I take my pick. It’s gotta be strings. 

Share Your World 7-27-2020

Here are this week’s questions on Melanie’s Share Your World.

Are you a clean or messy person? Both – it depends. Messy until the messiness gets in my way or clean until the cleanliness gets in my way. Generally speaking, rather clean.

If I asked you to describe yourself in five words – what would they be? A child of God —Simul justus et peccator (I’m counting all the Latin as one very pretentious word 🙂

Do you enjoy being out in nature? Walking in the woods or along a river path for me is like hearing the the slow movement of Rachmaninoff’s Symphony No. 2.

Don’t freak out. You’ll recognize it as soon as you hear the first notes.

In the same way, being outdoors hiking or just sitting on a hillside shatters me with nostalgia and the longing of a traveller headed home.

What could you spend all day talking about? The grace of God .

Sláinte!🍻
