I just need a moment to get back there.

Your ugliness (writing)

I think it’s absurd that a mirror can reflect your ugliness inside of me.

It’s hard to look in the mirror (writing)

IT’S HARD TO LOOK IN THE MIRROR

Not because I’m not 20 anymore

With youth and good looks

Not because some days you see it

That I’m really ill

No, not because of those things

It’s because those who should have loved me

Left me feeling broken inside

Ugly INSIDE

That’s why it’s hard to look in the mirror

Strumpshaw Steam Rally

It’s that time of year again for the Strumpshaw Steam Rally. Held near Norwich, Norfolk (England). These photos were taken by me back in 2009. I remember that because my dad was still alive and I had to get about with my walking stick – I didn’t have the mobility scooter in those days. (We were still thinking that my mobility was going to SOON get better).

As a toddler in the mid 70s Mum and Dad would bring me along to these various steam rallies. Petrol (gas) was cheap back then. There’d be colourful, whirring fairground rides and cheap hotdogs, and that fairground organ music and hundreds of men fawning over hundreds of steam engines. I never wanted to leave the carousal horses and the stench of steam fumes is forever secreted in my memories. I love steam trains. My wish is to travel on a proper big one. So far, I only remember the beautiful bijou one at Wroxham (Norfolk, England).

Videos below of when John and I visited the Wroxham steam train in 2016.

As for Strumpshaw, although I would like to go I don’t think my mobility scooter can handle all that expanse of bumpy grass. Still, I have those distant memories.
