By Paul Goldfinger, MD.   Editor. Blogfinger.net. Ocean Grove,  NJ.

This image was originally shown on Blogfinger one year ago.  It reminds me of the old guys who get together each morning at Wegmans or at a diner.  They sit (or stand) around and talk politics or reminisce about their military service, or they complain about their kids.

I did, however, see a group of older women doing the very same thing at the upstairs Wegmans café.

When I see them again, I will take their photo and ask them what they’re talking about.

This medieval French village sits above the Dordogne River in south-central France. There is a hotel there and a little park.

In the mornings, the mist rises off the river and makes itself known 900 feet above.  On market day, they set up here early, and as the mist clears, a foie gras stand is seen along with tables belonging to fresh food merchants selling sausage, vegetables, bread and fish.

During the Hundred Years War, the English owned this spot for awhile.  Luckily the French got it back—the food’s better.  But Monty Python is funnier.

Hi Paul:

Greetings from Manhattan. Over fifty years ago, my grandmother said a few things to me shortly before she died that I knew would eventually find their way into a poem. Here is “Grandmother’s Note” from my 2008 collection, Father of Water.

Best wishes,

Charles Pierre

Grandmother’s Note

By Charles Pierre

 

Looking for less with each added year,

I’ve begun to live in the small space

that surrounds me now, in the shadows

 

that gather at my feet and follow

as I walk along, and in the breezes

that take my shape for an instant,

 

leaving nothing but gentle creases

in my hair and a cool ripple

over my skin. Expecting little,

 

I go where my handwriting leads me –

become just a sound, a word, a phrase,

part of the impression on the page

 

for a moment, not an old woman

with the obvious lines of age, but

a clear thought in this surrounding space
