Happy New Year to my blogging buddies and readers, wishing you all the best for 2014.
Here is my attempt at Mag 200, the last one of the year. Francis Bacon, a Self Portrait.
Our first home
Not brand new, on some fashionable development
But old red-bricked, in a quiet and unassuming street
A small, affordable and cosy space,
Just big enough for the two of us.
We danced on the wooden floors of knotted pine.
The old dresser, a cooker and one battered comfy chair
Our luxuries of possession, debt free and resourceful too.
Memories caught by your old and faithful lens,
Pictures saved in hard backed books
For laughter, retelling tales and sharing
With the next generation
Where images move at a quicker pace.
