Safe in My Place

Safe in my place
I hear foxes bark
In the autumn dark.

In this semi-urban space
The foxes laugh and say
All this will pass away.

      Indeed they are fascinating creatures. My new guide dog Apollo watches them out of my living room window. As you know foxes are also canines, so perhaps he recognises his distant kin. Kevin

      Thanks Lorraine. Apollo is a golden labrador with short hair. He is very friendly and I have been training with him for nearly 2 weeks. I have another 3 weeks or so to go. Best wishes. Kevin

      All things pass in the end my friend. Kipling wrote a fine poem about the British Empire entitled Recessional. He is often (and correctly) regarded as a supporter of empire. However in Recessional he recognises that the British Empire will pass away as did the empires of the ancient world. Best wishes. Kevin

      Indeed things do change, Michael. Whether they always change for the better is an interesting debate. Also there is sometimes a confusion in the minds of some people who wrongly believe that change and progress are one and the same thing, which they are not. Stalin and Mao both believed they where progressive and stupid people outside of the Soviet Union and China believed that they where indeed ushering in a more progressive world which, quite clearly was not the case. Best wishes. Kevin
