Aside 14 Oct


Today I ask for your forgiveness…

As a child, I snuggled in your fur…I wrapped my arms around your neck.

I played, in awe but fearless.

Pulled dagger teeth, poked  glassy eyes, grasped languid razor claws.

Hard plaster tongue & snout; lifeless, chipped, dusty.

Pelt limp, spreadeagled trimmed with felt, balding, bullet scarred & faded.

Bones broken, missing; Death.

I did not think of  you alive  White Tiger Skin Rug.

“IZ” Lives…

In the summer of 1997, Israel Kamakawiwo’ole , by then one of the most beloved singers in the history of Hawaiian music, died of respiratory failure. He was 38 — and just beginning to see the huge success of “Over the Rainbow.”

Someday, I wish upon a star
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
High above the chimney top…

That’s where you’ll find me.

Endeavour Morse…

25 Sep

Morse

From the crime novels of Colin Dextor, we have the Endeavour series with Shaun Evans as Inspector Morse,  and Inspector Morse series with John Thaw as Detective Chief Inspector Morse GM.

Why the name Endeavour? …Morse prefers to be known as Morse…his father was an enthusiast of all things Captain Cook, and a Quaker, used to names like Faith, Hope and Charity, so he called his son Endeavour after Cook’s ship.

Two very enjoyable TV series.

Sidney Chambers is a charming clergyman who turns into an investigator when one of his parishioners dies under suspicious circumstances in this drama set in 1953. He partners up with gruff, down-to-earth police inspector Geordie Keating, whose methodical approach to police work complements Sidney’s intuitive techniques of getting information out of people. The two partners — who bring different insights into the crimes they start to unravel — form a true friendship as they work together. As he is beginning his new career, Sidney’s personal life comes apart when he finds out that Amanda, the woman with whom he is secretly in love, has become engaged, making him think he has missed his chance with her.
