Not a player with power, but passion.
After manning booth at street market on Sunday,
After having not touched my piano for thousands of years.

God knows I love playing the piano.
Even had one when living briefly in a cellar in SF.
Landlady’s old dad next-doors lent me his baby piano.

He moved it from his cellar with help of one friend.
He told me it was okay, he was only 68.
I later found out he was 86!

Para Perrito

practising practising practising

Tengo una mascot.
Su nombre es Doggie.
Esta muy frio hoy.
Hacía frío para Doggie.
No hace frío para Doggie ahora.
Es importante para mí.



Mi Perrito


Communicating is more than speaking the language.
Can we communicate without speaking the language?
I believe we can.
Hence I dare dream of moving to Peru with no Spanish.
But I am learning, starting from today:

Mi nombre es Fanny-Min.
Tengo una mascota.
Mi mascota es un perro.
Su nombre es Doggie.
Soy importante para ella.
Y ella es importante para mi.

Min = Swiftness & Sensibility.
I definitely smelled something burning …

I shouted into the kitchen:
‘Some plastic bit stuck onto your frying pan?’

I jumped up from my laptop seat and ran into the kitchen.
He dashed out to close the balcony door and all windows.

‘From outside,’ he said, ‘some people burning rubbish.’
And I trusted him.

I trusted him so much that I did not notice
What was happening to my foot-warmer …

Unlike Sammy,
When you say ‘come’, Doggie goes.
And now, when Sammy is gone,
When you say ‘come’, Doggie comes.

Sammy & Someone

Sammy & Someone

Sammy won’t stink
When he arrives at the Gate,
Not even of his last urine: 
Someone has wiped him clean.

Sammy is God-sent,
To limelight gentle care rendered
by someone who pledges me no care:
He knows not if he has enough to spare.
