Hi there,

Thx for your latest writings, always gives us food for thought. Keep them coming. Yes, these are scary times. Just taking it one day at a time.

We are Dylan fans and enjoyed that very much. Haunting. Will pass on to our daughters.

We had seen that second poem before but so apt. First poem so beautiful.

Spinning yarn weekend sounds amazing!

Take care. Regards to Elizabeth.

Hi Peter

Great words. Appreciate! Hope you and your family are well.

Challenging times ahead but we’ll overcome. My business (golf events and other related events where there are large gatherings} is literally off-limits for now and the near future. But, we are a resourceful bunch and will create opportunity.

Lynda and I are moving to our cottage in the Southern Drakensberg which runs as a guesthouse. The kids are now finished school and will make their way.

It seems the Karoo and rural areas such as the Southern Drakensberg just might turn out to be the place to be in this crazy world.

Some eland in my ‘garden’ this morning.

Take care

Dear Peter,

Many thanks for the May Richmond Reader. Always looked forward to and enjoyed when it arrives.

Thank you for the Bob Dylan song Murder most foul. Classic Dylan!

You probably know it, but it reminded me of another of his classics which demands a careful listen, called Lilly Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts, from his Blood on the Tracks album. A reviewer of the album once noted that that its not only Dylan’s words that are important, but also the spaces in between.

Kind regards

Superb stuff. Exhilarating. Who says literature is "dead" in the wake of pesky Covid-19, or whatever it is called?
