Today and tomorrow forty-eight hours of intense work ensuring studio, filming and client protocols are in a measured place before my ten day return to the farms.......

Here's a song NOTHING ELSE MATTERS and a fine searching poem.

When Men Got to the Summit

Light words forsook them.
They filled with heavy silence.

Houses came to support them,
But the hard foursquare scriptures fractured
And the cracks filled with soft rheumatism.

Streets bent to the task
Of holding it all up
Bracing themselves, taking the strain
Till their vertebrae slipped.

The hills went on gently
Shaking their sieve.

Nevertheless, for some giddy moments
A television
Blinked from the wolf's lookout.

Ted Hughes
