Biscuit City

Oh, the water is of emerald
And the beach is white as snow,
And everyone’s got money
And no place to go...
And the streets are all so quiet,
And the walls are squeaky clean.
I think you ain’t been nowhere
‘Til the town of Biscuit City you have seen.

“Biscuit City”
Written and sung by Gordon Lightfoot


There is no such place, of course. Though there may be locations that are as serene and happy, Biscuit City is a state of mind. It’s where there is peace and calm; trouble doesn’t exist there, indeed it cannot, and all is as it should be.

I will start my three weeks’ holiday at the end of work today. I will add to the blog during the days to come - cats, after all, take no time off from being worthy subjects of writing - but I will have more opportunity for the things I enjoy; more time, though it will move more swiftly. So I am off to my own Biscuit City for a while. I hope you will join me now and then.

    1. Thank you for the wishes. The entire feeling of a day is different when you know there are several more coming that you have off. Half the fun of a holiday is in the time you have, and half is in the mind, I think.

  8. You will be in Biscuit City. As you linger in bed in the morning, your kitties will appreciate your company and surely treat you to biscuits.
    Enjoy your vacation. Be indulgent of yourself. You deserve it.
