the gull and I

stand and watch the surf roll in

tasting the wind


It's great to be back.  I wish to thank Jon Willey and all who remembered me with such generous words.

How much greater it is, Gene, that YOU ARE BACK! Tasting the wind can be a good thing, especially with your gull as companion :o) As always, your words produce such a strong image. Continue your progress of recovery...we need your contributions of beautiful art-words to view, my friend.
Blessings and Love - Micke

Now we KNOW you are safely home and back on the ever onwards and upwards path to health and well-being, dear Gene! And IT FEELS GOOD! We can savour this re-opening scenario with you and know that it signals that all is well in your world, that the dreams continue undaunted and unbroken inspite of the drowse and perceived downtime of a period of sickness. As creative people, I strongly believe that there are "markers" in life that conjure our sense of being; things that clue us into what it means to be here, now and truly alive in our space on this mortal coil. My markers are things that others might consider ephemera and inconsequentialities: feathers, shells, leaves (plus rock concert ticket stubs... Aerosmith last night, Oh Boy!!) - and it's their appearance in my life that grounds me and opens doors to the who and what I'm about. Does this make sense? With you it's perhaps the companionship of your beloved Gull. Very cinematic - this I can see! :)) You better get that notebook at the ready, Writer Man, cos whatever that gull is tasting you can sure bet he's gonna be gettin you to note it down and translate for us back here! And he's got over six months' worth to be featherin your creative nest with... I'm sending my carrier pigeon over forthwith to confer! WELCOME HOME! :)) xx

Yes, I can see the vista you paint with your well chosen word pictures. The gull rises on the thermals just as I do to know you are back with us. Much joy and renewed strength. Love, J'nia

I once sent you a message upon the wing of a gull who visited me at a lake. Wouldn't it be wonderful if that gull were your gull. Either way, it's always good to taste the wind and the salty sweet goodness of home. Sending love.

If you just got back, where did you go. Where that was, I'm glad to see that you returned. I was wondering what happened. I haven't been a regular at Authors Den either since I started Blogging super seriously.
