memoirs, art and fragments by Thomas Milner

Hi everyone

Jo here, Tom’s niece, gatecrashing his blog again!

Tom is back at the Lar working very hard at getting better. He’s medically stable, well looked after but rehabilitation is slow and frustrating. Tom’s mind is sharp as a razor as ever, but he’s frustratingly not able to type, read or use the computer. However, he’d LOVE to hear your messages, words of support, notes or anything else. It really does make a difference and lift Tom’s mood. Do leave a comment here (They’ll get read to him) or email me jo[at]minestronesoul.com

x Thanks

Jo

  5. So good to hear tou are getting better Tom. I have missed you and was excited when I saw “Notes from the waiting room” in my inbox. I think about you often and have been emailing Jo for progress reports. Keep up the good work; you are a star!

    I am working on a calendar which will contain my close up photos of flowers with haiku or other short verses. Look out for the post in the New Year. I know its a long way off yet, but maybe it will be for you to look forward to! 🙂

    With love

    Olá TOM,
    Que feliz fiquei quando soube que já está no Lar, no seu espaço.
    Tem uma sobrinha notável, a Jo.
    Tem sido ela o veículo das notícias sobre si, tem sido ela que tem agregado todos os seus verdadeiros amigos para acenderem uma vela cujo brilho tem sido o centro da nossa Fé.
    Deus não parou mais de olhar para si e por si.
    Gostava de acrescentar que nós muitas vezes criamos em nós sugestões destrutivas, mas temos de edificar sempre, o gelo do desencanto não pode entorpecer o nosso coração.

    TOM, o triunfo espiritual é construção para o dia a dia, não há realização sem esforço. Não deixe que ninguém lhe apague a esperança. Não se revolte contra ninguém.

    Conserve o hábito da oração para que se faça luz na sua vida íntima, basta os seus olhos olharem para o Alto.
    Será qua ainda consegue pintar? Que património lindo deixa, as suas pinturas reflectem a sua inteligência, a sua incrível sensibilidade, os seus dias de sol e os seus dias cinzentos, reflectem sentimentos sobre a família, amigos, a vida, que perdurarão para todo o sempre, bem como todas as suas reflexões escritas
    Desculpe escrever-lhe em português, mas o meu inglês escrito, com grande pena minha, não deve estar famoso, dado que infelizmente não pratico a língua diariamente e, claro, também não a escrevo, contudo leio o inglês muito bem, percebo todo o sentido das frases e do conteúdo.
    Que Deus o abençõe. Se pensar que há tanta gente a gostar de si, acredito que isso o fará muito feliz e muito mais sereno.
    Um abraço amigo.

    Querido Tom,
    Vou sabendo noticias da sua recuperação e fico feliz por saber que apesar de toda a frustração que possa sentir por esta não ser tão rapida quanto deseja , o Tom foi , é e continua a ser como a Fenix.
    Consegue renascer das cinzas. Uma vez mais.
    Acredito , do fundo do meu coração, uma vez ultrapassado este obstaculo,
    o Tom írá de novo reenventar-se, as vezes que forem necessarias, para partilhar com todos nós a sua experiência e impressões através da sua fabulosa escrita, historias e telas.
    De si guardo registos tais como: ” Não dar nada como garantido na vida ” e ” está tudo na nossa mente” . Não pense como garantida a sua frustação e aparente “lenta” convalescença Tom!
    Abraços
    Ana

  9. Hi Tom. wandered over from butimbeautiful.

    A hamburger walks into a bar, asks for a beer. Bartender says “I’m sorry, we don’t serve food here”.

    Hope rehab is both smooth and effective!

  10. Hi Tom, hope the clothes i sent arrived, i know they are a bit boring but in this heat hope they will help.. Just come back from Ellie’s graduation ceremony in Brighton. Quite a rigmarole, but ceremony moving never the less, and made very entertaining as the chancellor is Sanjeev Bhaskar ( British Indian comedian, actor from comedy series ‘Goodness Gracious Me’, and as host of ‘The Kumars at No. 42’) . He was very irreverent and funny compering it all. Quite in keeping with Sussex’s trendy tradition. Ellie looked lovely and of course there were many photo opportunities, which she loves.
    I’ve just read the lovely comment, above , from one of your ex students, about your amazing stories, and it made me think about how you used to make mum laugh till she was crying, with your impersonations of people. It brought back to me your ‘posh Yorkshire accent’ that had us all in stitches in the kitchen ( a good antidote to all the seriousness around)
    I think of you often Tom, and your recovery, and what hard work all the exercises must be, and in this heat!
    Love you lots Tish xxx
    Jeremy sends his love too
