Donald Maxwell

Donald Maxwell died in Kent in 1936. He was an exquisite  artist. Google his work and enjoy.

My beloved brother, Martin, bought me a book during his last visit to Blighty at Christmas 2014. It’s by said Mr Maxwell and was published in 1921. ‘Unknown Kent’ it’s called and it’s a treasure. Fankyoo bro, not just for the book, but for the introduction to a remarkable man.

Donald Maxwell also wrote the following.

In labours, in watchings, in fastings;

By evil report and good report:

As unknown, and yet well known;

As sorrowful, yet always rejoicing;

As poor, yet making many rich;

As having nothing, and yet possessing all things.

About allatsea

Sixty year old master-mariner. Absolutely gorgeous. Well wedged.....when compared to a Nairobi street urchin. Sorted, in that I haven't been in court recently. Hopelessly optimistic, terminally disappointed. Good with cats and other fluffy things. No musical talent. Generous to a fault provided it's someone else's round. Political centreist with far right and left viewpoints. A green activist from the hydrocarbon position with nuclear leanings. Averse to avarice but always happy to receive lottery wins, gifts, windfalls, legacies, prizes and wet sloppy kisses.
