Time to become Italian on the Outside as well??

Ah, Italy. My Other Half wants to take me there. Perhaps I should let him - I do like Italian food!

It's been wet here too, and I was just this morning thinking about a week we spent in Wales in 1992. We rented a house in LLangrannog which had a washing machine, but no dryer. Lots of clotheslines outside, so I thought that would be great to hang out the clothes. Well, it was rainy and damp the whole time, and we had to hang lines all over the house. We were dodging clothes above our heads. :<) Even on my inside line, this summer it takes two days to dry a pair of jeans. We've had enough sunshine to get flowers and veggies, but still lotsa rain.

Thought for life

  • The House of Breath, William Goyen
    We are the carriers of lives and legends - who knows the unseen frescoes on the private walls of the skull?

Thinking about . . .

  • Daniel Klein, Travels with Epicurus
    I too listen to music more and more. Throughout my life, music has stirred me more than any other art form, and now, in old age, I find myself listening to it almost every evening, usually alone, for hours at a time.
  • Julia Blackburn, Thin Paths
    I began writing because I liked to write things down. I learnt foreign languages because they seemed to enter my head by a process of osmosis.
  • Joan Bakewell, Stop the Clocks
    I live contentedly alone. It's better that way and I am often thoughtful about what has been and what might have been. There are many like me.
  • Patti Smith, M Train
    Oh to be reborn within the pages of a book.
  • Patti Smith, M Train
    Why is it that we lose the things we love, and things cavalier cling to us and will be the measure of our worth after we’re gone?
  • Judith Kerr, Observer Magazine, 22 November 2015
    I don't believe in God. I find it much easier to believe in ancestors. I like to imagine they are pointing us in the right direction.
