Thank you Rima and now to Peter Flint as well.


With thanks to Rima and her Hermitage: remember the little people and halt the juggernaut.  May this be one of the small spokes in it's wheel.

I just wanted to add this( to the post)

Peter's poem just chimed so well with what Rima is trying to remind us of.
This is an excellent site and very thought provoking.

Small World

It's not far to the wheely-bin
Almost full...
The half-eaten turkey
That pork-pie...lurking at the back of the fridge
Long past its eat-by date...
It's not far to the corner-shop
The loaf of bread...the chocolate
To munch while watching the telly
It' s not far to the supermarket
With siren ranks of goodies
Each with its low-fat absolution
It's not far to that little pub
Lovely village...great food...atmosphere
Only an hour down the motorway
It's not far to...Florida...Thailand...Tenerife
Superb hotel...five restaurants...all-day service
It's not far to the dusty, sun-cursed square
Where swollen-bellied babies
Scrabble in the dirt for grains of corn...
Small world!
