Venice…

Venice…stunning canals, colourful buildings and light playfully interact while all the visitor has to do is sit languidly and sip a full-bodied red wine and let the mind wander.

Writer’s Tears

writer's tears

 

Writer’ tears and

Writer’s fears

Bubble over the brain like lava

Hot on a flow with an

Undertow of emotions

That embrace the brain

Like a heated vice lock.

 

So I surf the web

As a distraction

And await

Inspiration

A needle in the brain

That sparks life and

Words on paper.

Sorry

(Intermediate step)

On the screen

Stored in memory

Finally

Printed to page

Where the words flow more freely

From the depths of the printer

And I am relieved that I have no more

Fears or tears.

Until tomorrow.

Budapest: Breathtaking Beauty

Budapest, Hungary, is a stunning city under the light of day or the sparkling lights cast from its regal buildings at night and reflected on the River Danube, which slides through the two halves of Buda and Pest. (Part 1)

Buda looking toward Pest

It is a very walk-able city with plenty of sights and sites to view along the way, be they churches or cafes on a square with sprawling pavement seating. (Part 1)

The food, especially the duck and fish, is splendidly prepared and presented. But finding a quality beer here can be a bit of a challenge but with research and determination it can be done. (Part 2)

When the beer offerings were at a low ebb, I switched to Hungarian red wine, which was plentiful and of good quality, hitting the right notes of fruit forward with a nice peppery finish. (Part 2)
