One foot in front of the other

I think I'm in a kind of secondary phase of recovering from the stresses of earlier years.  Eighteen months, and I am still not quite there yet.  Big waves of loneliness, and being at a bit of a  loose end, while still being busy.  I try to remember that I have a lot of physical recovery to get through, too.  

This too shall pass.  Meanwhile, art proceeds inexorably, life making little or no difference to the creative energy, in fact the work is pretty good all things considered.  If you'd like to see what's up at the moment, take a look here 

Latest DVD watching that has helped a whole lot with the loose endedness:  Call the Midwife, brilliant series, Your Sister's Sister, very complex and funny and sad and appealing and just good, Dalziel and Pascoe, two latest seasons, great drama.  And tonight on the menu is Mr Selfridge.   

Any other recommendations that I might get on DVD at the libe, gratefully received! 


  1. If you're a fan of BBC then I think you would enjoy The Darling Buds of May..there are a whole series. Light hearted fun. And then my other favourite is the series Foyles War. Not sure if the libe would hve these but worth a try.

  2. Glad you're hanging in there. I've been remembering you as the daffodils came up and now as the birds are everywhere.

  3. I have Foyle's War all on tape, from the days when the tape recording function of the tv worked! so I watch them on a little tv in the bedroom, and fall asleep regularly, but I like them a lot when I'm awake!

    DBM is at the libe, so I'll make a point of checking it out.

    Liane, yes, you're often in my thoughts, too!
