For Remembrance Day and forever.

By Dutch historian Jo Teeuwisse  and entitled titled Ghosts of War–France. The images eerily show old World War II photographs of soldiers blended seamlessly into photos of the same locations in modern day France.

Watching the rhythm of rural life, from the top of a hill in northern England. Having spent most of my life avoiding writing, I now need to do it! I am no domestic goddess, but if I were expecting visitors to my home, I would whisk round with the duster and plump up the cushions and generally make the place look presentable. I hope that by putting my words where others may see them it will encourage me to ‘tidy up and push the Hoover around’ my writing. On the other hand I may just be adding to the compost heap. Only time will tell! Pull up a chair, sit yourself down, I’ll put the kettle on.
