  1. 😦 Such a well expressed post. Everything: the way it stretches out, the choice of words, it all says what you feel, and I’m so sorry you feel that way. All the best, Fiona. Thinking of you.

  2. I felt like this three weeks ago, so I demolished a barn. Now I can add scarred and bruised to your list. Here the outer landscape has changed to red and orange, it seems to help the inner landscape to some degree.

    1. I love this, Hudson, but I’m sure the barn didn’t.
      Stomping about with the dog isn’t doing me any good and I don’t have a barn to demolish, so I must consider what I could break 🙂

      1. This was a barn my father built and added additions to, it was a barn that I participated as a kid, helping to build. People would come along offering assistance, even more offering advise, all were declined. Construct, deconstruct, reconstruct -it does help, in art, in writing, in life, though it gets watered down in society perhaps to many cooks spoil the broth.

        Just read your last post. Enjoyed the links to Sunday playlist but the notion of writing test to go to the next level in the education highway sounds …………perhaps I should not judge as long as works?

        1. I’m loving the story of the barn, Hudson. I’m sure it could have told many tales, as you can of it.

          Feel free to judge our school system- it works well for a minority. Too many children are left feeling like failures at 11, and a huge proportion leave school without basic literacy and numeracy skills. That’s not a good system.

what do you think?
