I am in the charming town of Passau in Germany with a terrible case of loneliness. To obstruct such inward thoughts, I wrote a post to ask if anyone would fancy a poem, drawing or printed text (I've a brilliant stamp set, you see). I received no response which has not helped these blue feelings, no. I wish I could return to the Cheshires. For now, I will return to the pages of a book oxoxoxoxoxoxox

Rosemary 

By Laura Cheshire

Gallivanting from light to light, without a fear
When, directly, Rosemary descended to a can of cold beer
It is true, you may have too much of a good thing
For it bound her to Death's door by her gossamery wing
I rushed to her aid, the next moment - a blur!
After what felt like eternity, she started to stir
Rosemary, think of me always, as I will of you
Just don't take it personally if I'll not offer a brew.

Munich, Germany.

Füssen, Germany.

Passau, Germany.

Marks to prove it.

I'm listening to Young Colossus, travelling through Austria, hidden beneath belongings. I attempted to draw a stranger earlier today, although, I've found it is not long until they notice that my bespectacled eyes, with another set of eyes (evil eyes to ward off evil) swaying from the frames, are observing them. oxoxoxoxoxoxox

You Are A Work Of Art

By Laura Cheshire

They briefly whisper velvety words, intoxicated by the grand halls.

They never care to read your unassumingly placed description.

If only they knew that your didactic is coated with more colour than any canvas.

Alexander McQueen.

Kew Gardens.

Birmingham.

Mr. Robin Redbreast 
By Laura Cheshire 

I'm awfully fond of you, Mr. Redbreast,
And if it weren't for my gangly presence causing you great unease,
I'd sing a song with you, Mr. Redbreast,
As you gracefully flitter through the trees.







The Dad Pose.





We hope you like our story, although, there isn't one. That is to say, there's many, that way there is more fun.

I'm listening to Romantic Works by Keaton Henson and reading an article on beachcombing. The writer has since mentioned that each fragment of glass and pottery will outlive us - a very dreary Easter Sunday indeed! I've recently traveled and said goodbyes. Only a few more items to pack oxoxoxoxoxoxox

I am surrounded by pyramids of objects, all built at various attempted dates of packing. Leeds was a brilliant adventure. In due time, I will print my feelings in rhyme. When I was a child, I'd often run away - mostly to a park until it turned dark and rainy and I started to question if a fight about who's turn it was to do the dishes really validated opting for a bleak future residing in a playhouse. Now I am in need of The Monkees. Packing can wait another day. oxoxoxoxoxoxox

I know a face who I can show my true colours. To your arms, into your arms I will go when I'm low.

I am still awake due to a wearisome wisdom tooth so am keeping occupied with 6am writings and Patsy Cline. I watched Frank recently. I wish every film were of the same grain. It is brilliant. I don't want to rattle on about romance except I recently read an article about the greatest love letters of all time and I adored Richard Burton's to Elizabeth Taylor in 1964:

'My blind eyes are desperately waiting for the sight of you. You don't realize of course, E.B., how fascinatingly beautiful you have always been, and how strangely you have acquired an added and special and dangerous loveliness.'

Beethoven could certainly poetise a few good words too. oxoxoxoxoxoxox

LAURA'S ART CLUB - Valentine's Day DIY

Laura Cheshire
Laura Cheshire Feb 11, 2015

I have to admit that I'm not a devoted Valentines Day advocate. At school, February the 14th always emphasised the fact that the gents in my year weren't all that bowled over by painfully shy boyish-looking girls with fierce acne. I do get incredibly excited by a lovely thing called love though so, with that in mind, I will share four of my favourite ways of giving it (in DIY gift form).

 

A lover's shrine isn't just for stalkers. If it is presented in a tiny box and doesn't include snippets of hair or old gum, it is actually fairly romantic. Although, if your one and only is expecting a marriage proposal, a misleading-shaped decorative matchbox might not go down so well.

 

A paper doll of your soul mate is a certain winner. For the purpose of this entry and my wildest fantasies, I will pretend I'm dating Noel Fielding. Do not worry if you cannot draw decently - as your Honeybear, they will be so immensely infatuated by you that they believe anything you create is wondrous and of great talent.

 

The mixed tape / CD is due a revival. With music so easily accessible nowadays, to press play on a stereo and await affectionately hand-picked songs from your courter is the bee's knees. Throw in a love letter for good measure.

 

Even though the penny is not considered a favourable coin, it should not be so readily dismissed - 400 of them earn you a daily bus ticket, 1000 earn you two moderate beers along Call Lane, and only one is needed to earn your significant other endless pleasure. Find one that is dated from the year you first locked eyes on one another and superglue it to an old necklace or ring (pre-loved jewellery adds to the charm). And remember, if all else fails, just have some ridiculously priced heart-shaped chocolate on standby.
