Welcome

Welcome to Wordster!

This website is where I keep all manner of bits and pieces. I suspect it’s the equivalent of the kitchen drawer, although I wouldn’t like to say which section corresponds with the ball of green twine…

Choices, choices! You can:

Happy browsing!

One thought on “Welcome

  1. I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
    And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by;
    And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking,
    And a grey mist on the sea’s face, and a grey dawn breaking.

    I admit a certain fondness for the moody and a joy for the that promise the idea of travel has always given me — but Masefield naming the sea ‘lonely’ suggests he didn’t know much about the seas or the oceans — a song of innocence rather than experience, where mind-forg’d manacles lock tight and marshall the limitations of what imagination was hoped to break away.

    But any blog that sends me on nostalgic journeys into Masefield and Blake — and give my mind sighs of soldiers leaking as blood from the monarchal pours of prince stones is good by me. 🙂
