A good day indeed: productive, instructive, yet reassuring A parent visit day: a ring of the bell, a hug, and a long chat.
About family, about holidays, and then down to work.
They’re helping me with my thesis: I have quite a bit of tidying up to do.
Yet I felt proud, sat there on the sofa,
Talking about my work as if it was serious and important.
For it is. I have, at last, written something of substance and value.
Something to be proud of.
Sat there, Lyn nearby, I realised that I had reached somewhere good
And I held my head high.
