Michael Edwards




The past is set in stone – the future’s set in clay.

    So true Michael.

    Great minds certainly.

    Good write and pic M.
    Also - 'Small things amuse small minds'? Did someone say that somewhere, some when? Maybe one of Miss Berles original sayings.

    • Michael Edwards

      And bigger fools look on. Miss Berles is sun bathing today but I'm not looking..

        Fools rush in where angels dare to tread? Where do the fools rush into?

        And here's mud in yer eye mate!

        Yesterday i gave my lovers strawberries - today, a raspberry!

        • Michael Edwards

          Lovers in the plural ?

          We had mango yesterday (really sweet but my wife tells me nothing like the flavour she recalls when she had then straight off the tree in her homeland ). Today it's strawberries and who knows what tomorrow.

        • Fay Slimm.

          Good one to remember my friend.

          • Michael Edwards

            I try to remember them all but forget to do so - thanks Fay.

            BRIAN HERE ~ Bon Dimanche Apres Midi - Mon Oncle Michael ! I see we Are back to the 3rd Reich again *Red - White - Black* - horrifying combo !
            I like the Mantra *Never Look Back* ! There are those who classify Our Odes as *KINDERGEDICHTEN* but we are Classical Poets - and Your Poem (& Andys) reminded us of the the Stanza in Robbie Burns ~ *To A Mouse*

            Still thou are blest conpared wi* me
            The present only touches thee
            But och - I backwards cat my e*e
            On prospects drear
            An* forward tho* I canna see
            I guess an* fear !

            Blessings & Peace to YOU & YOURS
            Love Brian Angela & Smokey 🧡🤍💙

              Part of a series but it's come to an end - back to seascapes which I love painting. Cheers A&B.

            • The Uneducated O.A.P

              The past is in the ground, the future? More dead all around. Bill

              • Michael Edwards

                The past is dead - the futures not yet born.
                Cheers Bill - keep safe

                • The Uneducated O.A.P

                  Sadly man has no future, if it ain\'t a bug it will be the destruction of the planet form any one of a number of reasons, so the future is also dead, cheerful today arn\'t I.
