My weltanschauung is no secret I love the world and all its continents I would remove most of the population while I travel to see the sights Leaving my admirer at home He would disturb my peace The trip would end in turmoil Leaving my blessings on my best writing paper On his pillow, I took off for two weeks I hope he remembers the word honour when he sees my PS, no phone calls I need this time out I cannot wait for my eyes to take in all the beauty So far, seen only on television Remembering to keep my yin yang in balance Toss out preconceptions The overall tone is one of peace Don’t take the high road, stay centred A slight nod of the head, hands clasped Say Namaste…

Monday morning, and the start of a brand new week. We are hoping for a good one, although it already sounds doubtful.
Why do we bother listening to the news, it’s never any good!
Anita wrote this wonderful poem for my book, Out of Time…
Out of Time Kate’s life, her mind, is out of time A savage wind took all but the brush from her hand. Her thoughts crash like a wild storm She no longer has the will to speak One last blow to strike A fake wedding planned by Detective Snow To trap the beast that waits without. Will Jack be snared or run again? The snowman, as Kate calls him, Will he stay with her until the end... ►© Anita Dawes 2018
Kate Devereau wakes up in hospital in this exciting sequel to NINE LIVES,
unable to speak or move after the brutal attack by her ex-husband.
Her brain has shut down, refusing to acknowledge the misery of her dark, disturbing past.
A past that conceals a web of painful secrets.
Can she gradually piece her shattered life back together,
Or will she discover that her nightmare is far from over?
New Memories Our winter ski holiday, Years later, no more than a treasure A shadowy memory An element of toujours perdrix A sign to the past Together we navigate the slippery road ahead Crisp white winter Warm within, cold without Years slow the body, not the mind We sit, wait for mind and body to catch up To forget the wonderful winter holidays skiing Time to make new memories Slow, warm, indoor memories
