And something for the R thread, on trying to write about what's important to me. I was just reading through and correcting all the spelling mistakes (i've improved a bit on that score, but still need to check everything through a couple of times).
Ahhh the lentil soup - yes, I did go a bit nuts for that, I even made curry out of it!
But right now it's too warm for filling up. I have been eating a lot of tomato based dishes - Italian (I'm growing my own basil - and so far, it's still alive....just).
While i was away i had to stay in hospital for a while (nothing serious) and the food was revolting (that's putting it politely )
I knew I was getting back on my feet when i started dreaming about all the much better meals i could concoct in my own kitchen! (And I'm no chef)
I'm fighting fit again now. Ready for anything, in fact. How about you?
Well, here's something i posted on Letty's thread this morning - seems appropriate for this thread, too
What have i been listening to? Well - I've mostly been playing guitar myself (Nick Drake- ish) But I've (in my creative moments) been into this (link below), from Israel. Although it might not be your cup of tea I think you will be interested.
If you listen through to the end - I promise you it will lift you up - it certainly has touched a lot of people.
I've also been listening to classical music quite a bit. I found the album I was listening to when i wrote the WWI story. Although the tracks are 'classics for funerals' some are very inspiring. I especially like Gabriel Faure's Pavane Op. 50
Hey - I will check out your youtube link - thanks Olga

Hey Olga - I loved the video and song - thank you for that
After watching it and thinking about stuff - I 've decided to leave the R thread alone for a while. Who needs it anyway?
I've just finished reading a really good book - The Places in Between by Rory Stewart. I just want to make a prediction - that one day he will be PM of Britain.
I hear you have a new PM over there in Australia - a lot has changed while I've been gone. Here on the forum, too. It's grown from a village into a town around here. I kind of like that - you can lose yourself.
