Look for quick singles
Yes! No! Sorry. My mistake.
Takes two to Tango
n.b. Continuing with the cricketing theme, communication between batters is either a strength or a weakness. It is about being in tune with your partner. As in cricket, as in life.
Here is a clip of a classic cricketing communication breakdown for your edification. Stick with it to the end to see the culprit’s body language. Oops!
a date from history when
cholera took hold
n.b. Now 1,820 is the worst daily death toll in the UK during the coronavirus pandemic of 2020 / 21. This is dreadful.
The cholera pandemic around the year 1820 killed uncountable millions.
The door clicks a jar
compresses the draught
to a whistle that wakes me
from your arms, her arms, my brother’s
hand I held through a summer
night in the respiratory ward
down the corridor from coronary care
where he would be the next summer
and no one could visit
while he dreamt of life and dying
surviving dreams of dreaming
and not divining what was remembered
or dreamt even when sent home
to live as best he might when so tired
of medication and interventions
when all he wanted was to live
and love and still be the man
It had to happen
we crashed into each other.
Found – laughing in street
n.b. I am close to bursting, laughing out loud again, 45 years later. Mucking about on our bicycles we accidentally locked handle bars and fell to the pavement. Before we could move, get cross, or blame the other, a little girl’s face appeared over the adjacent garden wall, “Are you alright?” she asked and that was it, we dissolved in laughter. You had to be there.
I wonder if she ever offered unsolicited help to anyone ever again. Poor kid.
Thanks, Tim. Best accident I ever had!
