Self and reality. Symbol and language. Myth and image. Memory and consciousness.
Dream and unreality: locus communis.

A Litany of Failed Friendships and Lovers

Sonny Rollins on the radio. Odd how the arrangement, slow unfolding of meter opened out every wound from the past fifty years. Every bruise resurfaced. A litany of failed friendships and lovers. The indifferences. The misunderstanding of phrases. Casual slights. Verbal assaults. Targeted infidelities.


  1. You could be describing my life. Beautiful and painful to read - and what happens on that casual quiet moment when the radio is on and your mind wanders.
    Yvonne here - I've had to change blog. Start again. It's been a funny old time here for me in Scotland.

  2. Yes, it's funny how one song brings out a sequence of memories. Hope things are well. I'll look into thr new blog.
