Merrily, merrily

The claim that life is but a dream is rightly attributed to Shakespeare. In his play ‘The Tempest’, the words run as follows: ‘We are such stuff as dreams are made on, and our little life is rounded with a sleep.’ However what’s often omitted is that these words proceed from the mouth of a…

Momento Amore

A few times over the years I have caught the scent of my wife’s perfume on my clothes; not of course self-applied, but caught on my clothes by her warm proximity and embrace. The whiff is welcome, the carriage is without embarrassment, and the experience is a momento of her love. A momento amore. So…

Two letter words

They’re the teeth of every Scrabble-shark, and the enigma of every Scrabble-minnow. Two letter words. The exact number of them that can be legitimately used on a Scrabble board is disputed, but the latest and official number is 107.

Her Etonian tutor distinguishes between the Crown and the Government, and in that memorable moment, speaks of the two parties to the Constitution as “the Dignified and the Efficient”. Not meaning of…

Bond. Matthew Bond.

Well, just over a month to go now until the new Bond film is released. No doubt it will be action-a-plenty, and no doubt the opening ten minutes will cause hearts to race and leave no time to look away from No Time to Die. It’s the Bond formula, and what makes Bond, Bond, and…

Vale Seiko

Today I lost a good friend. One who has been at my side for nearly four decades. There at my coming of age. There during my university days. There through my courting. There at my wedding. There through my honeymoon. There at the birth of all my children, and at their first day of school….

Fixing Henry’s Heart

“There’s a hole in the bucket, Dear Liza, Dear Liza”. “Well fix it, Dear Henry, Dear Henry”. Well I can’t my dulcet darling, says Henry, because I will need water to fix it, and I can’t carry the water to my workbench because there’s a hole in the bucket! I think of that frustrating sequence…
