Q Okay, at least I know you are not a citizen of only England, or only a subject of some other kind of Her Royal Majesty Elizabeth II, and this time around the political discussions would be mostly affirming.

Except I still liked her participating in the French kiss, and I do not mean Joan d'Arc.

sabbie in a year and a half
in 18 months
it will be our 6 year anniversary.

it is also at that time
we will sell off mosst of our things
and we will be going over
to live in england for a year.

first a little jaunt,
say three months or so
around the uk and europe,
then we shall settle down
in london
or maybe edinbourgh
(around which area both our ansestors once roamed)
both get lovely jobs
and live there for a year.

and we'll go to slimelight
on torrens st
and see all our favorite bands.

how grand.

and maybe we will come back
with accents other than our own.
blown cherry I'm looking for a reason not to go.
Everyone I've spoken to about it says it might be good, good to get away, good to travel, so long as I'm not running away.
Except for one person who hasn't expressed any opinion on it.

I'm looking for reasons to stay, stay here.
I'm hoping for a reason to stay.
I'm hoping one person will give me a reason.

But I'm not holding my breath.
So I guess it's England here I come!

Steal the hubcaps

Zed I always used to wonder why anyone in their right mind would go to London on holiday.

When you live so near you can't think of anything but getting away from it.

It's so busy, full of people and noisey - there is no rest there.

But I realise now, that it's different for you - the buildings are really quite impressive I guess. And there is a lot of history to see.

It's just easy to forget when you've seen it all every day.

noname I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

The waves beside them danced; but they
Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
A poet could not but be gay,
In such a jocund company:
I gazed--and gazed--but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:

For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

William Wordsworth, 1804
