My work computer died recently.
It was an abrupt and unexpected departure
but my work was all backed up
so there was no great drama.
The only thing that got lost in the process
was the image I used for the screensaver.
It was a picture of rocks
at the bottom of a cliff
and was much admired by
Physical Geography colleagues.
I miss it after so many years.
This is my new screensaver -
I expect I'll get used to it.
Have you visited Julia in Prague recently?
She has started to post everyday
and it is a delight to discover the city.
It is also fun to learn more about Julia
who has been a loyal commenter on this blog.
Audrey, my mother-in-law, loves Prague
and insists that we must visit soon.
I say "Well...I have a friend who lives there..."
to Julia and all my American friends.
I wish you a peaceful weekend.
Each year these names resonate
from cold granite facings
in this country churchyard.
Albert the blacksmith's lad,
Samuel the parson's son,
William the postman
and Albert his brother.
The birds fly up at the crackle
of the bugle into the blueness
of every November day since
they left the village,
but in the long distance
the cows on the green skyline
wait patiently for their return.
