The Cottage on the Moor is a place where I'll keep a fire going on cold winter nights and a breeze flowing through the windows on steamy summer days. There will be a "cup of warm" waiting for you to stimulate your mind. I'll try to keep it fresh by adding something every now and then. So come often. I hope you find it worth your while.

(Thoughts while strolling the hardware store)
Time comes to divest of tools
but never to quit coveting them;
the aisles are full of shimmering jewels
as precious as mined and polished gems
calling the artisan back, and back again
to ogle the endless ingenuity
displayed, since the world of man began,
in tools wrought, re-wrought incessantly.
But there comes a time to divest,
a silent order to “cease and desist”,
an urgency even, to let go and devest,
to give them away . . . then sit back and rest.
