A fumble of Events-HOW It All Came To Be

The collected Wisdom of Godfrey,compileed by Worzel, dedicated to his friends.

Overcome evil with good,Falsehood with Truth;Hatred with Love,PEACE PILGRIM.

BUILD WITH OUR LIVES A WORLD THAT RHYMES AND WE WILL SEE WHIRLED PEAS IN OUR LIFETIME.BY GODFREY.

For Ma,who read to us every night.For the Rambling Roses Small Smelly Room Literary Guild, the Poets in Plaid and all who come out to the readings.

To Derek Victor Walsh guilty of The Thumper Letters,.The gang from old C.T wherever you all are. The bold Women of Greenham Common,even you Beth wherever you all are, I survive because you were made of thorn and bone.

Dr David Paltiel, I still have your tie for that Pulitzer Prize. Every one else,you will all find yourselves in Godfrey’s story as he is a part of my whole life so far…

..I miss him; my shadow child,though I see him from time to time, an aged hippie riding the bus on a dark rainy night,a plaid satchel in the Library lost and found,An odd looking character peering at the menu in the window of a Chinese resturant.

I see him when people eat beets of course, and when a plate of carrot muffins was left at bus stop last June

.Two summers ago I passed him hitchhiking outside Ucluelet B.C.,I hollared at my friend, who was the one driving to double back and pick him up,it was a cold foggy morning and by the time we reached the hitching spot all we found were threads of plaid wool, damp with dew on the roadside blackberry bushes.
