The splendour

and joy

of looking freshly

and without

ill judgement

into the face

of the unadulterated



The inspiration

that comes

from seeing the

unique combinations

of the unexpected

and in finding

the novel

in the predictable.


The obsession

with things

in the world

that do not sit

in a person’s usual

neat shopping basket

of desire.


The wonder

of looking into

the beyond

and finding there

fragments of yourself

quite apart from

the ordinariness

of life.


The entering

of the world

of the other person

through words

and emotions shared

in serendipity,

to reveal

those hidden parts

and make them known

and understood.


The openness

to all

that life,

with its unpredictable


wishes to serve

in the great

and grand

feast of living.
