Calm sky. Vast shadowy oceans.
Piercing haunting eyes.
The smell of fresh linen. The cry of a bird.
Baby boys. Ice and wind. Tears.
Lazy late summer evenings. Primary school uniforms.
The Oxford dictionary.
Persistence. Excellence. Insight.
Favorite coloured ink. A bad day.
Winter. December. Socks.
Comfortable solitary Friday afternoons.
Sweet love. An understanding friend.
Van Gogh. Mystery. Pain. Misery.
