Hay & Borris coincidences
The end of May & beginning of June
Considering the length of a 3 legged bus journey, you’re meant to feel bloated & tired, so if putting up your tent makes you feel like you’ve had a baby having made it to the pub, it’s a dream haze to the annually (un)usual invisible recurrence. Feeling lighter! Does it ever happen more than you experience scarpering. Determined. Hay is a picturesque & gentle picture for having pre booked, and there are reasoned maidens & squires all over the place, doing good deeds among parental & informed ages with a lot of information going round. Its like the Play Away window Brian Cant did between the instalments of speaking authors, and you’ve come to watch in stories.
Three years before that happened, I vaguely had a tiring weight bulge that did the entire stewarding time for the Welsh May 10 day Hay week before returning home north.

Later that year five years ago Martin’s New York apartment burned down.
What hadn’t resurfaced equally to follow on really on his loss of his foot, for he appeared to have both back when we had gone for dinner in the 90s to Blair Adam. Gerry Adam. A blast grenade lost him his shin or knee) & nor was it properly mentioned til it factually sunk up again this week. Please readjustarrange this sentence.
Another baby happened in Chelsea Harbour Hotel marble & luxury loos, when I knew someone else was expecting one and it went to live there, til it were reframed as an effort for them. Come to think of it.
On making the birth occasion a bit longer, the baby might have been officially matched with me and we gazed and loved each other deeply & fully, as we always knew. She got to meet Augustus along the board walk going back to the boats.
