If this blog suddenly seems to have taken an ugly turn towards politics leaving my much beloved poetry behind, I'd guess it's because of them:
I spent the long weekend with my children and grandchildren, which kept me both busy and entertained.
Much of what I do now, at least politically, is done for them not me. With more than enough to live on, my concern has shifted to my children, and particularly my grandchildren.
I didn't spend my life working as a caseworker and teacher to suddenly abandon the next generation because I've retired.
