Thanks to Ben Huberman and the WordPress Discover team for stepping up to the plate and lending us all their support and encouragement.

Stay safe and well and let’s fight this thing together, and make sure we don’t forget the lessons we learn when we reach the other side.

little drop of claret, anything that rocks

let's make a list

of all that we can't do
           no longer do
             long to do

let's make a list
 
    of what we might do
         one (fine) day
        if we are still
                       allowed

lockdown | discover | twentyeight | focus

they came in the night

when we were not looking

when we ticked the box to the t&cs

when we looked the other way

when we ticked the box to the t&cs

when we were having so much fun

when we ticked the box to the t&cs

and then

when our focus was elsewhere

their plan was complete

when we ticked the box to the t&cs

they took it all

away

hidden
           
           behind walls
           (electrified) fences

           behind words
           (electrified) tensions

           behind facades
           (i've created)

           behind excuses
           (forged) 
           from
           fear

           it’s time
           no 
           longer
           to (remain)

                               hidden

lockdown | discover | twentyfive | magic

of        winding roads

of        rivers in full flow
of        mountains peaked
of        futures, ripe(ning) with possibility
of        burning leaves
of        candy apples
of        that first, taste
of        that first, warm glow
of        that smile
of        that lingering goodbye
of        those letters
of        the end

of        tears
of        dark long nights
of        bandages and sticky tape(d) care

of        hope
of        that smile (again)
of        another day (in the sun)

of        all things bright and beautiful
of        not forgotten toys
of        (those still remembered) windswept moors
of        oceans deep
of        stars that never go dark

of        paths not yet travelled

of        (all) these things

                     is made

                                magic

Wave that wand, Tinkerbell.

love’s a fool’s dance
i ain’t got much sense but I still got my feet

really a road runner that much is clear
who whatever the weather knew no fear

lockdown | discover | twentythree | note

a note from me (today)
to me (tomorrow)
and all my other (tomorrows)
reminding me (and you)
that this view is my

window
on

the world
and reminding
me (and you)
that

a

smile

costs

nothing
