A poem from a follower

Hi and thanks to the kind blog follower who sent me this poem from the twelfth century. It seems very appropriate to me.

I'm also putting up some more of me recent postcard finds from Deptford Market.

Deptford Market finds

I regularly travel to Deptford Market in South London. The market days are Wednesday, Friday and Saturday and I most like to rummage through the stalls htat are primarily stocked by house-clearance goods. Its a real lottery as to what might be there from day to day but this is one its' appealing features. I am always attracted to boxes of old photographs or postcard collections. One can form some insight into the character of the person who used to own the once treasured items now scattered out on tables for the world to see and buy. A large percentage of it, I'm sure ends up in landfill if it hasnt sold after a couple of weeks. Here are a few gems I have bought recently.

More to show soon in another post.
