I am a very creative person and it’s my way of dealing with the world, inside and out. I am only happy when I am making things or painting or writing. There are just not enough hours in the day…. I am into poetry and photo manipulation at the moment and also dabbling in photography. :-)

    oops!! I can relate to this image, cos I have carried on just like that for almost a 100 years. Broken hearts can never be repaired. this is an excellent image and I do like your Poem.

  • :-) You’re looking great for your age! What is your secret? Or would that be telling? Nope, there are always scars left from broken hearts and some bits never work properly afterwards… :-(
