Fanfare for the Makers – 366


To all the things we are not remembered by,

Which we remember and bless. To all the things

That will not notice when we die,

Yet lend the passing moment words and wings.

Louis Macneice

366 complete. My heartfelt thanks to my “cloud of witnesses”.

Fanfare for the Makers.


I never saw a purple cow,
I never hope to see one,
But I can tell you anyhow,
I’d rather see than be one.

Frank Gellett Burgess

One of my nonsense favourites.

Light and Shadow

Shadow is a colour as light is, but less brilliant;
light and shadow are only the relation of two tones.

– Paul Cézanne
