THOUGHTS ON THE CONFINED WORLD OF THE HOUSEBOUND

I could be bounded in a nut shell and count
myself a king of infinite space …

Hamlet, Act II, sc.ii


Here is my first, relatively ambitious, blog under new circumstances, dedicated to being housebound:

    Dear Edward Petherbridge,
    Once again, you’ve hit all the right notes. It’s obvious to me your mind and soul are by no means confined. Your poetic “collage” reminds me of a favorite poem by Seamus Heaney: “In the Attic.”
    Peace,
    Timothy Reilly

    Dear “Peth”. I came upon this today “I could be bounded in a nutshell and count myself a king of infinite space, were it not that I have bad dreams>>>
    says Hamlet. and came again to your blog to see if you have had the where with all to post for us. May it not be that you are beset with “bad dreams”…
    and will bring us to your generous sweet mind. I miss all this here; I will put down my reading, not a little informed by your work, to visit with your
    posts again. Thinking you brings my heart to life.

    and will bring us to your generous sweet mind/heart when you can. . I miss all this here; I will put down my reading, not a little informed by your enlivening generosity, to visit with your posts again. Thinking you brings my heart to a sweeter sense of life–a heart that now, to my surprise, has a “helper”, made by Medtronics and “installed” at the University of Vermont Medical Center. Still, like Alison, above, I try always not to be housebound.

    Dear Peth,
    Beautiful beauty
    Extraordinary soul
    Your poems are peace

    Thank you Peth. As a Petherbridge from the Philadelphia area I’ve always enjoyed coming across your work.
    I found T’old field today. I will re listen to it many times and share it with the family.
    I find it profound. As I spent 4 years home bound I am drawn to your haiku verse and what a beautiful way of expression. Fortunately now at the young age of 66 I find myself more able and having left my Doctoring life behind I now have the privilege of contemplating on your work in addition to pursuing fabric art, gardening and the everyday thanksgiving that enriches.
    Peace to you and joy
    Bright in wisdom, strength and grace
    Share with us your light.
