NEIL YOUNG in Weymouth

Neil Young really hit it in the early '70's : 4 brilliant albums - "AFTER THE GOLD RUSH", "HARVEST", "TONIGHT'S THE NIGHT", and the one that really caught my attention - "ON THE BEACH"....and in Weymouth you cannot get away from it...and it is the best beach around for miles. Whenever i stroll the sands, or cycle along the sea-wall..WHEREVER ...Weymouth is definitely defined by its huge stretch of sand. John Cowper Powys, of course, wrote that classic - WEYMOUTH SANDS - yet here am i remembering Neil Young....and it is all because of them seagulls, always watching and waiting for scraps, chips....etcetera...



...and what are those crows looking at ? Just one little yacht does not make it The Olympics just yet....and me ....? Well, "i'm just sitting here on the beach ..........but those seagulls are out of reach.....GET OUT OF TOWN, think i'll get out of town."  Anyways, i'm sitting on a deckchair with my pineapple and passion fruit pot from ASDA....and Neil Young's lyrics continue to circulate...



....Day after day, happy to be in Weymouth. One should not search outside of self (microcosm) for happiness. And now i will not look outside of Weymouth (macrocosm) for happiness....Utterly settled and content. It has taken 64 years !!



Easy when one has this...


....and this...


....or this...


....and to quote Bolinas poet, JOANNE KYGER.....
...ALL THIS EVERY DAY....
(only in WEYMOUTH !!)
