O Wild West Wind Etc [Oct. 21st, 2017|04:08 pm]
Tony Grist
The latest autumn storm is called Brian. It sweeps over in great gusts, with brief sunny intervals. I watch maple seeds spin overhead and try to remember the opening lines of Shelley's Ode to the West Wind.

O wild west wind, thou breath of autumn's being.
Ti-tum, ti-tum, ti-tum, ti-tum....

We seem to be in the process of buying a house in Hastings. I say "seem" because I don't like to call a thing certain until it's actually done and dusted. The house is on one floor- and is a sprawling thing that has coalesced around a 17th century core. It's free-standing with a small, manageable garden. Ailz and I are beginning to play "doll's house"- working out what piece of furniture should go where.

The pumpkin referred to in the previous post has gone home with my sister who has neighbours who will convert it into a jack o'lantern.

I recall you saying that you and Ailz liked Hastings very much. It sounds just right and I often wish our house was all on one floor now that arthritis is slowing us down.

Even though we don't really celebrate Halloween in Spain, given my US upbringing, I am often tempted to carve a jack o' lantern in October. It wouldn't make much sense here, though.

To begin with I didn't like the idea of moving to a bungalow but then I came to see it makes sense. Besides, this is a rather unusual bungalow.

You could always carve a jack o'lantern for your own satisfaction. It might amuse the neighbours.
