Town Twinning, Breakfast and A Poem

24 Sep

YesterdayI learned  from a friend that our town, Redruth, is twinned with Mineral Point in Wisconsin, USA! We knew that many Cornish hard rock miners emigrated to the states to take their much needed skills and I did a lot of research into that when I was part of the Perthi Kov team putting together our stories from St Euny graveyard for Until the Day Break. I think Wisconsin will have to be on our next US trip, whenever that can be. I wonder if any of my dear Readers are in Wisconsin. That would be really cool!

Our supermarket delivery came tonight. We have croissants for tomorrow’s breakfast!

I am not alone among my friends in having the odd wobble emotionally during this strange period in all our lives and I send my love out there to any of my readers also feeling the strangeness.  The following poem of Mary Oliver’s captures the essence of what we all need to do. Go out and sing!

I Worried by Mary Oliver

    Good poem. Instead of worrying, sing . . . or eat a croissant!

    Lovely poem. I’m not usually a worrier, but I have found making decisions about anything hard to do lately. And I once worked with a couple of girls from Madison, Wisconsin, in Norway. I wonder how their lives turned out.

    I grew up in Wisconsin, although not near Mineral Point.
