Bob, bending over James
Thank you for identifying James for me. Impressionism is a bit like "Clue", as is Haiku...

As I live within spitting distance of Richmond in London (I live in Twickenham) twinned with Richmond in Virginia (which I assume is what you refer to) I was instantly drawn to this. I thought for a moment there was another poet who lived near me!! Alas not.

Great Haiku!!

how it came
lol it's funny how that came about, was talking to someone for the first time, they said "tell me about yourself", so as I was explaining my life story, they were looking at me in disbelief. So I told her, "if I told you my reality, you'd say I have a wild imagination, if I told you my imagination, you'd say I have lost touch with reality", so that's basically how that came about...Glad you liked it...Bob:)

Richmond in London and Bob's Quantum Reality
I didn't know there was a Richmond in London... interesting. Is it like a burrough, or something? Like Queens or Brooklyn, or where is it the Beatles were from, oh yeah, Liverpool? I'm sorry our Richmonds are not closer. I'd invite you over for tea and scones and some poetry reading.
And Bob, I thought the reality philosophy was right in line with quantum physics, and way cool. Reality DOES begin with imagination! LOL!

Yep, it is actually a town in a county called Surrey, part of West London. It's famous for being home to Virginia Woolf, Hogarth Press as well as the fact Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall live there.

It is twinned with Richmond Virginia.

If you have ever seen the film with Nicole Kidman where she plays Virginia Woolf, it is partly filmed there. It's a great place, alot of art shops, photography shops etc.

Tea and scones are a favourite, LOL!!!
