I'm back! Did you miss me? I missed you all....lack of broadband access has driven me close to the edge. The holiday was great, many photos taken but hell I missed the access....it almost drove me to drink, no I'll be honest it did. I was forced to drink each day at some stage to kill the pain. Got home Tuesday evening and felt like the living dead...straight back to work today...well you know my four hour day! Feel slightly more human today but the process is always slow...is that the onset of old age?
Will be getting around to you all over the coming days. Need to see what you have all been up to....not being on-line for 10 hours a day is terrible.....yes I know...Phil get a life I hear you shout but hell you are like children to me but no breast feeding ok!

Today's photo was taken on WTCD on the Kennet and Avon Canal in Bath. Jasper Rose is his name. He paints most days on my walk to and from work. I had never photographed him before but he is a charming man and was up for the toy camera treatment. I have a few of him so he may appear again...need to take him a print. He has been trying to give me a painting for a long time so I guess I have the perfect swap now. I'm sure he lectured in art history in Santa Cruz, California for many years. A charming man and I hope he won't mind me saying my friend.

a horse, a horse
my kingdom for a horse
rattling on magnetic fields

yes I did use up
the last box of sparklers
before they went bad
got wet or decayed

homecoming queen, homecoming queen

teeth what were sharp
is ground down and dumb
my crooked spine becoming more brittle
what once grew straight
and tall t'ward the sun
is absorbing back down
to dirt like a sponge

Listening to: "Home Coming Queen" (Vivadixiesubmarinetransmission Plot ) - Sparklehorse
