Quince

“They dined on mince, and slices of quince
Which they ate with a runcible spoon;
And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand,
They danced by the light of the moon.”

or because when you sit in it I have nowhere to sit?

Wastin’ time…

Sittin’ here resting my bones
And this loneliness won’t leave me alone
It’s two thousand miles I roamed
Just to make this dock my home…

Penelope…

2014 09 ZA Fromariz Tía EsperanzaDSCF1041<a

This is my father’s eldest sister (91) knitting. Every time I visit her she seems to be knitting the same piece of yarn… I sometimes wonder if she is like Penelope, and undoes her knitting every night waiting for her Ulises…
