Letter to America

Today’s post from the Leeds General Infirmary

Two golden eagles once flew proudly over Elmet’s valleys and wide rivers. When the Cistercian monks built Kirkstall Abbey, nature smiled. Little did she realise the folly of allowing humanity to settle in Elmet’s wide open spaces, soon proud forests were felled to build citadels. In no time wattle and dub was replaced with red bricks and stone. Then concrete arrived, allowing allowing tower blocks, hosting Cranes. Whilst Lowry like stick figures to populate ribbon like paths. Nature herself has fled… Mike

At present I am under the weather… fortunately not with Covid. But I am unwell and awaiting the medics to decide what to do, whilst I wait in hospital at Leeds. The Internet here is temperamental, so please forgive me if I am not able to comment this week. Mike Humphris

  1. Give humans a chance, and we’ll pave paradise to put up a parking lot.

    I hope the docs figure things out and get up back up soon. Speedy recovery.

    1. Thank you Rochelle, the internet connection in my current hospital is total rubbish. I am unable to post comments, or take FaceTime calls… There is no TV or radio ! Not that I mind the latter two things. I hope that I will be able to see the next prompt and make a post. So I am going to try and write and illustrate a children’s story, but I do not know yet what will appear…mike
