Release Relax

Travelling in the car
long way north

'go' out the window

Artwork by LH

January to May

too many days,

sweat & tears

added years,

family & friends

colleagues & students

forcing me

to win the fight!


& successes,

Fulfilment at last!

On my way!

Out in the dark of night,
time to think, recall & doubt,

Phone & side lights on,
All alone in this lonely lane.

Few cars pass, none stop,
stranded now in a 4 wheeled box.

Breakdown service called,
too busy & far away.

patience rewards, I'm saved
I'm on my way to another day!

One Day's Diary

One Day's Diary.

Dolina greets us with a welcoming gift,

how thoughtful & kind!

special ingredients added

to create this homemade cake.

Morag travels on the Post Bus,

then pops in to say hello,

having a cuppa, catching up,

current affairs and all that!

Two young cyclists in the bus stop

warmly accept our offer of tea,

they make their way to find a spot

to pitch their tent for the night,

Daughter and friend laugh

& giggle having fun together,

up & down that road they go

until the dark of night prevents them so.

Becky....your painting on the wall.

Becky .....your painting on the wall.

I see your painting,
the different strokes,
the white of the waves,
the blue of the sea.

How could you
visualise this?
Its exactly us
all three!

Your mark is here
admired by all,
pride of place
in our hall.

Full Circle

This poem was written by my friend Jay.
She wrote this poem after spending time with her family at Christmas. It made her smile!

It has also made me smile and hopefully many of you will enjoy it too!


My son has been a baby:
Cute and
Bright as a button.

My son has been a teenager:
Thorny and

My son is now a young man:
Clever and

My son has now his own baby son:
Cute and
Bright as a button . . . .

Remembering Uist.

Remembering Uist.

Promised that I would paint and print
and carry on this creativeness,
circles and colour force my hand
with these printing inks.

Onlookers stop and look,
an even surface is all I need
to replicate the patterns from
the isles to keep me in the mood.

One print, two prints and many more,
what am I doing here when
I should be there with you
……….... enjoying the view!
