The youngsters are creating,

playing with jags of lightning,

tugging with love cross-dressed

teddy-bears, gazing over

cracked sea-lines, ripping photos of

themselves, smashing bones

with bone hammers,…

here is a link to a beautiful dance video.

It has to be a link on a blog [says my I.T. advisor] as the copyright holder will not allow embedding.

Eddie Izzard

Eddie Iz

Eddie is the man who likes to dress

in ladies clothes

and wear that make-up on the eyes

we'd all like secretly to wear.

Eddie Izzard is the man

who likes to tell the stories

how it is

and so we laugh because he isn't.

And when we don't laugh

Eddie says

"note to self,note to self,

no-one's laughing

don't try that…

I've just moved house {to a flat in Totnes Fore st} been very busy ,as you can imagine, doing admin., cleaning, draughtproofing, unpacking, pictures/ornaments/lots of nails and hooks. etc. The thing is..T asked me if I feel at home yet and..even tho I don't have a bed,chair or a table,the chimney smokes and oh yes no curtains either..I replied Yes I do feel at home. So I thought I'd throw the question to all you people..What makes you feel at home--what is the vital something? Can you… Continue

Hi Clive, I'm Tabitha's friend. A friend of mine, Callum, a musician/producer, is looking for somewhere to live in the Totnes area. It would be great if I could put him in touch with you, if you have a room, or know of one. He would fit in well with other creative people, ideally. Cheers, Nick Holden.

Hi Clive, yes it was indeed a delight! 

A friend of a friend is looking for a room to rent so Barry gave me your mobile number which I've passed on. Hope this is ok. 

Also, could you remind me about that tango class you mentioned.

Thanks Clive !.That does help ,i find plenty of inspiration in dance but,i am aware that i come from a different style, to those around me !.Just need to trust myself and enjoy the moment, forget intention , as you say go with the spirit and let what comes up come up !.

Honored is a strong word.  Maybe we should discuss it! :D

Hi Clive, how are you? I've been away working and playing a lot - played too much tennis and hurt my knee, so no dancing for a couple of months. I manage the flat in Fore Street for two friends who live in Japan.

Will organise another film night at some stage (don't know when...)
