The last time I saw you
In that hospital bed
You were gasping for breath
Spirit trying to hold on
While your body gave up the fight
But that isn't how I remember you

I remember your brilliant smile
The day I went to see you
Three hours on the train
For one hour by your side

I remember the nights at dancing
Guiding you through a move
Feeling oh so proud
The next time you succeeded

I remember Sunday afternoons
Watching the motor racing together
Trying not to disturb you
While you snoozed in your chair

I remember coming home from work
Seeing you in your chair
Ready to listen with a kind ear
And offer gentle words of support

I remember party nights at Guides
Celebrating with my friends
You always came to collect me early
And joined in with the party!

I remember you teaching me many things
History, engineering and languages
I remember your patience
And the days you helped me to ride my bike

I remember all of this
And ever so much more
The evenings at the theatre
And days out in the countryside

I hope I will see you again
When the time is right
But for now there is one thing I must say
Goodnight, dear father
I'm proud of who you were
The Last Time I Saw You
Inspiration struck on National Poetry Day. A difficult subject for me, and one that I'm only really beginning to accept after three years.

Newark and Long Bennington from Barrowby Church by potternutter
Newark and Long Bennington from Barrowby Church
Same day as the photo of Lincoln Cathedral. Another one using full 30x zoom on my Sony DSC-HX50 camera. My husband and I were trying to work out which church (centre of photo) we could see. We didn't have any binoculars handy, so I used my camera instead. To the right of the church is the sugar beet factory at Newark on Trent, Nottinghamshire, England. Long Bennington is at the left of the photo, just below the arm for the power lines.

After a rather long period of time with no updates from me, I've decided it's about time to return. I admit, I haven't done much in the way of graphics, mostly due to life, but partly due to lack of inspiration.

I finally have a decent camera for photos and video, so expect to see more photos from me over the next few weeks/months. The camera I had when I last posted unfortunately died (sort of - the focus failed down the right hand side), and wasn't repairable due to its age, which is a real pity because I loved that camera. The one after that was heavy and got through batteries at a crazy pace. Unfortunately that camera wouldn't take rechargeable batteries. It did have a swivel screen though, which came in handy a fair few times. The camera I have now was a birthday present from one of my brothers. It's not a brand new, top of the range model, but it's not really a basic 'point and shoot' model either. It's sort of in the middle, and maybe a year or two old (the make of it, that is. The camera itself is only a few months old in terms of how long I've owned it). It does what I want it to, and the quality is reasonable. The zoom, quite frankly, is amazing. I took a picture of a church about 25 miles away, on full zoom (30x), and got a pretty good picture of it. I did have to use a fence to steady my hands when using that much zoom mind.

I've been exploring the art of video editing recently. There's a lot to learn. Finding the right software took most of a month to accomplish. Thankfully the trial of the second software program proved successful, and the trial resulted in purchase.

I enjoy writing and creating graphics. I sing, I dance, I do a little painting, I like to take photographs of places I've visited, and I absolutely love being outside surrounded by nature. I also have a slightly odd sense of humour, which runs in the family. Just recently I've been trying my hand at sketching some of my original characters - they can be found in my gallery.

Current Residence: Central United Kingdom
Favourite genre of music: New Age, 80s Rock, 90s Rock, 90s Pop, Country, Classical, Celtic, Soundtracks, Christian Rock
Operating System: Windows XP, Windows 7 or Linux (Ubuntu variation)
MP3 player of choice: Creative Zen X-Fi
Skin of choice: The one I'm sitting in.
Favourite cartoon character: Doc Hudson
Personal Quote: "I hope you find what you're looking for."
