This afternoon we drove to the pharmacy at Milford on Sea, then to Elizabeth’s home in Pilley to collect a dish of Jackie’s and her camera which had been left behind.

We also wished to photograph the appropriately updated work of the anonymous decorator of the letter collection box on Pilley Hill, which we had noted on our way home last night.

I chose to place no more pictures on this post because this message should stand alone.

This evening we dined on Jackie’s nourishing cottage pie; tender cabbage; crunchy, tasty, carrots; and firm Brussels sprouts. I drank a small glass of the Malbec and the Culinary Queen abstained.


  1. Whoever is decorating the post box is doing a great job, God bless them. Your dinner sounds so good, I would love to try Jackie’s cooking! ❤️😋🇬🇧

  2. It is such a beautiful picture conveying a message to the humanity at large. It appears there are many who exist in the darkness beyond that and Putin isn’t alone hogging the Hades of power-drunkenness, his friends Xi and and Jong-un to name but a few.

  3. This is definitely my favorite collection box decor ever. It’s a beautiful example how someone can do simple things to help make the world better. Thank you for spreading the message of peace, Derrick.

  4. Yes indeed Derrick … a profoundly poignant and important message … and yes I’ll be appropiately placing this photo on my poem tonight

  5. Hey you. I read on a blog this morning something that I would like your thoughts on.. hi. I have a question for you. I read that there is a proverb .. that says the man who looks both ways before crossing a one way road is or has a pessimistic way of seeing life? do you agree with this? or does it raise a different thought? what do you think?

  6. Yes, it stands alone quite beautifully! Peace to you & Jackie … and peace in our world, please! Hugs from Bob & me <3 <3
