The Cold Continues [Mar. 1st, 2018|11:35 am]
Tony Grist
One of our monitors says the temperature is -2 and the other says it's zero. But they both benefit from being up against the wall of the house and I'm sure it's colder in the open spaces. The ice on the water tubs was much thicker than it was yesterday. The sky is overcast and there was a light snowfall first thing.

Ailz set an electric heater going in our main living area and the cat was terrified and fled upstairs and hasn't reappeared.

Services are getting back to normal. Both the newspaper and the milk have been delivered.

I'm reading A Wrinkle in Time. It's a prophetic book- in the Old Testament sense of the word- forward looking- and still in advance of the essentially 19th century intellectual and religious culture of the mainstream- in its embrace of quantum physics and its conflation of science and spirituality. The movie- which is coming out later this month, I believe- looks as though it will be paradigm-breaking in all sorts of ways...

I read that book years and years ago when it first came out. I thought I'd give it a reread but the library was fresh out of copies

A Wrinkle in Time and other Madeleine L'Engle books were always great favourites of both my daughters. Disney made a TV version of it about 15 years ago, I think. The new film is about to be released.

L'Engle wasn't well known in Britain- and I don't think my kids read her. The new film looks very interesting.
