Hmm... It's been a while, again. Not had much time to upload etc and sorry if I have missed comments, I will return reads as soon as I can. I'm a mother and student, starting at University in September, and writing as much as I can. Inspiration ducks and dips and that's when the content of my poerty changes. I'm not sure where I'm going but hope it ends up some place good. Enjoying the journey and quietly confident it will all fall into life's little plan for me. Or, better said, my plan for it! :)

Some favourite quotes:

I believe every chess player senses beauty, when he succeeds in creating situations, which contradict the expectations and the rules, and he succeeds in mastering this situation. Vladimir Kramnik
A woman uses her intelligence to find reasons to support her intuition. Gilbert K. Chesterton

Absence diminishes mediocre passions and increases great ones, as the wind extinguishes candles and fans fires. Francois de La Rochefoucauld

A scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it. Max Planck
At the touch of love everyone becomes a poet. Plato
Aerodynamically, the bumble bee shouldn't be able to fly, but the bumble bee doesn't know it so it goes on flying anyway.
Love that is not madness is not love.
Chess is mental torture. Garry Kasparov
There is no disguise which can hide love for long where it exists, or simulate it where it does not. Francois de La Rochefoucauld
You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have truly lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love. Henry Drummond
One of my favourite poems.

From Songs of Action (1898). Arthur Conan Doyle

It was the hour of dawn, When the heart beats thin and small, The window glimmered grey, Framed in a shadow wall.

And in the cold sad light Of the early morningtide, The dear dead girl came back And stood by his bedside.

The girl he lost came back: He saw her flowing hair; It flickered and it waved Like a breath in frosty air.

As in a steamy glass, Her face was dim and blurred; Her voice was sweet and thin, Like the calling of a bird.

'You said that you would come, You promised not to stay; And I have waited here, To help you on the way.

'I have waited on, But still you bide below; You said that you would come, And oh, I want you so!

'For half my soul is here, And half my soul is there, When you are on the earth And I am in the air.

'But on your dressing-stand There lies a triple key; Unlock the little gate Which fences you from me.

'Just one little pang, Just one throb of pain, And then your weary head Between my breasts again.'

In the dim unhomely light Of the early morningtide, He took the triple key And he laid it by his side.

A pistol, silver chased, An open hunting knife, A phial of the drug Which cures the ill of life.

He looked upon the three, And sharply drew his breath: 'Now help me, oh my love, For I fear this cold grey death.'

She bent her face above, She kissed him and she smiled; She soothed him as a mother May sooth a frightened child.

'Just that little pang, love, Just a throb of pain, And then your weary head Between my breasts again.'

He snatched the pistol up, He pressed it to his ear; But a sudden sound broke in, And his skin was raw with fear.

He took the hunting knife, He tried to raise the blade; It glimmered cold and white, And he was sore afraid.

He poured the potion out, But it was thick and brown; His throat was sealed against it, And he could not drain it down.

He looked to her for help, And when he looked--behold! His love was there before him As in the days of old.

He saw the drooping head, He saw the gentle eyes; He saw the same shy grace of hers He had been wont to prize.

She pointed and she smiled, And lo! he was aware Of a half-lit bedroom chamber And a silent figure there.

And as he downward gazed, Her voice came full and clear, The homely tender voice Which he had loved to hear:

'The key is very certain, The door is sealed to none. You did it, oh, my darling! And you never knew it done.

'When the net was broken, You thought you felt its mesh; You carried to the spirit The troubles of the flesh.

'And are you trembling still, dear? Then let me take your hand; And I will lead you outward To a sweet and restful land.

'You know how once in London I put my griefs on you; But I can carry yours now - Most sweet it is to do!

'Most sweet it is to do, love, And very sweet to plan How I, the helpless woman, Can help the helpful man.

'But let me see you smiling With the smile I know so well; Forget the world of shadows, And the empty broken shell.

'It is the worn-out garment In which you tore a rent; You tossed it down, and carelessly Upon your way you went.

'It is not YOU, my sweetheart, For you are here with me. That frame was but the promise of The thing that was to be -

'A tuning of the choir Ere the harmonies begin; And yet it is the image Of the subtle thing within.

'There's not a trick of body, There's not a trait of mind, But you bring it over with you, Ethereal, refined,

'But still the same; for surely If we alter as we die, You would be you no longer, And I would not be I.

'I might be an angel, But not the girl you knew; You might be immaculate, But that would not be you.

'And now I see you smiling, So, darling, take my hand; And I will lead you outward To a sweet and pleasant land,

'Where thought is clear and nimble, Where life is pure and fresh, Where the soul comes back rejoicing From the mud-bath of the flesh

'But still that soul is human, With human ways, and so I love my love in spirit, As I loved him long ago.'

So with hands together And fingers twining tight, The two dead lovers drifted In the golden morning light.

But a grey-haired man was lying Beneath them on a bed, With a silver-mounted pistol Still clotted to his head.
