See you tonight :)

And stop making me like you.


PS Yes I did write the poem.

Didn’t realise it was a poem at first…cause I’m crap at poetry…then when I re-read the email…realised it rhymed…so made it a poem…then just this moment…realised I kinda just rewrote Auden’s ‘stop all the clocks’ maybe later…I might just rewrite ee cummings with justification and upper case…far and wee

PPS why do I always put off getting ready ‘til the last minute? Having a shower can be so boring. Okay signing off…showering etc…far and wee (but not in the shower).


  1. The first duty of love is to listen.

    Listening to each other has just got started ;) mmm its getting interesting.

  2. I so agree, Kunal. Sometimes I don't listen enough. Are you a good listener?

  3. Totally unexpected. The beauty before the horror. Or is life better than fiction? Sometimes I think I'm reading a great novel, like The Graduate written in present tense, in the moment, rambling. But then I remember whoa! this was true. Jesus.

  4. Stephen, I just love you for sharing this, I am hooked!..line, sinker, cement boots and chain. I suspect I am falling in love with them. Hungrily awaiting their meeting, please post

  5. My pleasure, Kelly. Are you getting updates of new posts? Wanna get updates via group email? If so facebook or email best addy for you...

  6. And Dunx - I love the graduate and you...

  7. A story or a letter is not a entity but a course of action, a hoax you play on the listener's brainpower. You initiate him/her off on the road to a plausible goal, and then by a unexpected twist you ground him/her now here at all or just where he/she didn't look forward to to go. So deep listening is miraculous for both listener and narrator. When an important person receives us with “open-hearted, non-judging, intensely interested listening, our emotional state opens out.” :)

  8. Kunal, I need to sit down with a cup of tea and process that... wow...

  9. "And stop making me like you."

    If I ever heard something to that effect when I was younger, I got shivers and it made me feel good for the rest of the week. Strangely, I am feeling that now.

  10. One other thing I just realized and must be stupid to have not picked this up earlier:

    Bored O' Lives.


  11. Yes, Stephen, when is one of them going to start punning on being bored of life. Don't tell me they're going to start a band. Sorry, ridiculous comment.

  12. bored. of. lives. sorry, but im just having a complete mindblow right now!! WOW.

    i am so damn thrilled to have come across this.. i could almost.. play my guitar! ..or sometihng.. gaaad WHAT DO I DO - THIS IS AMAZING!!!
