Well here here are some photos of the Brydsen ‘Crown of Madness’ out and about in Swanage.
No rant today because I’ve been so moved by how so many people have been so loving and caring and want to inflict upon you a poncy poem.
A few months ago I heard a piece by William Boyd on radio 2 about being human, and he centred it on Nabokov’s perception of life being a brief crack of light. It inspired me to write this:
A brief crack of light between two eternities of darkness,
before only the eternity of darkness after simply the eternity of darkness.
Between the prenatal obscurity and the posthumous obscurity
shines the brief crack of light.
This breach of darkness, a fissure that is the light of life.
Our life, our only life between the darkness.
And what fuels this light?
What makes the light shine brighter?
What lightens the darkness?
Why love of course.
And what dampens the light?
What lurks in the shadows?
The hate, the anger, the greed
the mistrust of the other.
So ask of your heart what lies within?
Is there more hate than love or love than hate?
And before that eternal, posthumous darkness
let love brighten the brief crack of light.
So thank you all my wonderful family and friends for the love that helps brighten.
Keep on keeping on love Duncan.
