. in a word .

Butchers used to hang their pigs (ham) by the tendons (strings) in the back of the knee. The Hamstrings are actually 3 different muscles that work together to extend the hip    and flex the knee.Basically the hamstrings most important job is to make sure your leg doesn’t fly off your body when you run.Yes, Found words with capitals.

. the theory .

that feeling, that . arrives unexpected from darkness, some winters’ mornings, opening the door to the sound of one black bran bird calling. track four repeated. that comes on waking finding   peace and comfort bound. it is a fine line we walk, gently avoiding peptides, only just a theory, yet used independently, alongside honest work reading how the body works, you will have a better understanding, yet they do not        teach of thisat school. they teach of clever yoghurt in adverts, i did…See More

i saw one of a different style today…

more gutsy, i laid it straight, removed the things for charity.

the boxes all looked very well. no dust.

or soon after.

pirate gun, a toy from woolworths probably.


they said to put my eye to the sight and pull

the trigger.


no caps, yet the hammer caught my lip. swelling.


badly. water to my eyes.

time is upon us, as he writes, fine  dust from the fire,                                       the old way.


we used to sit the rise and think of this. drive the evening hunting the blue           flax fields . found and waded the poppies outside the dyke,             worked the red thread. again.                     danced .


it is a long time since the sun shone in long and low like that, he said.   does this mean it is spring now? it is such a pretty room.…

there are no set ideas in this house upon the repetition of words.        we are sorry that you cried.

it has been a good morning so far.   with fried eggs on toast and the air. sorry that i was hopeless, even with clues.

there is a mist, a cloth, hanging, while i have seen so much. i forgot to ask about your trip.   i had driven the mountain to see you, parked nicely,              kissed your cheek, talked about the issues.

it all showed pride and i know

I haven't been on SheWrites much lately.  Been busy doing my own "thang" I suppose.  I'm curious as to what my SheWrites friends are up to, writing-wise, though.  Right now, I'm waiting to hear back from 2 agents who have requested my full manuscript of The Time Minders.  I'm still working on Kingdoms of Blood & Magic, but not as diligently as I should, since I've been querying/submitting for the TTM, doing scads of tutoring at my daughters' school and work for our church's youth group.  How about YOU?

And you.  Is it still damp in Wales?
