‘Tuesday’s Tune’


Soon after I started writing my blog, I realised that some of the people reading my posts were … other bloggers.  They comment on my posts, and I on theirs.  It’s a novel kind of ‘friendship’.  We’re unlikely ever to meet, and yet we come to know one another (or those bits of ourselves we’re willing to share in print) quite well.  We like and support one another.  Not for us the mean-spirited and negative comments that seem to be a feature of the comment columns on many national newspapers, thank you very much.

Even more extraordinary is the fact that these blogging friends live all over the world: in Canada, in America, in France, in Germany.  And this week, one of those blogging friends, Clay Watkins: Making the Days Count has asked me to contribute a guest post to his blog.

Clay is a teacher.  He’s the teacher you wish you’d had at school: keen to make his students enthusiastic for the project in hand.  Whether it’s looking at the skies, or the aftermath of the Second World War, or the principles of physics, Clay wants you to be curious, so you do your very best.  He likes music too, and so once a week on his blog, it’s ‘Tuesday’s tune’.  Have a look here, and see what I chose to write about on his blog.

  1. Thank you for the kind words. I would like to believe I make a difference for kids – I reach some, but not all, but enough because my colleagues pick up those I can’t or don’t reach. The past week has been a whirlwind – in every sense of the way. I am on Christmas break and while helping decorate the tree, I fell asleep on the floor – flat on my back. I loved the post – music is in all of us, it is the soundtrack of our lives. Peace on Earth,


  2. I don’t know how you find time to blog, volunteer etc and get ready for Christmas. I’m glad you do. Have a good one and all the best for 2016 xx


    1. We don’t really make a big deal of Christmas. I made my cake, puddings and mincemeat ages ago, and in any case, we’re having 2 sessions this year. Christmas 2 will happen in January with son, d-i-l, their baby and Emily, dropping by from Barcelona before she leaves for South Korea for a year, teaching. Have a great Christmas with some or all of your family! xx
