It is rather late here…. Yet again, sleep eludes me! I have work in 7 hours; I will feel ragged and worn, as usual, due to long working days, and insomniac tendencies! Oh well, poetry brings me solace! I have written a couple tonight; but after going through past journals, have come across some archaic poems I wrote more than a decade ago. They seem rather childlike, I guess my style of writing has changed a little over time. Again, my wonderfully artistic hubby has taken a photo, yet again at the Melbourne zoo. I thought it rather apt, in an elusive kind of way!
Getting off the subject of poetry, insomnia and the like…. In 3 and a half weeks one of my best friends in the entire universe is coming to Australia for a visit! We haven’t set eyes on him for 7 years, so it is rather exciting, and will be the longest 3 and a half weeks of my life, and the shortest 1 and a half days of his stay! Yes…. he can only stay for 1 and a half days! David has been raising much needed funds back in his homeland of New Zealand, for his aide projects in Zambia. He is a doctor, and has been a much loved friend of mine for over 30 years! The fact that anyone could manage to cope with my idiosyncrasies for that long is a miracle, to say the least! I have two such friends, besides my husband, and they both live miles away! I guess that’s why they can put up with me! My hubby on the other hand, well, he’s either a saint, or just as nuts as I am! (Love him for it!) I love my life!
