Thanks; I haven't read "The Kraken" in a long time. But this morning, I serendipitously read "Circumstance."

Two children in two neighbour villages
Playing mad pranks along the heathy leas;
Two strangers meeting at a festival;
Two lovers whispering by an orchard wall;
Two lives bound fast in one with golden ease;
Two graves grass-green beside a gray church tower,
Wash'd with still rains and daisy blossomed;
Two children in one hamlet born and bred;
So runs the round of life from hour to hour.

Beautiful lines, Emma. Thank you! BTW: to whom, among literary Emmas, do you feel closer, Emma Bovary or Jane Austen's Emma?

Hmmm, I suppose I was more like the dramatic Ms. Bovary in my twenties, although certainly not as tragic. Now if I had to choose, I'd say I lean more towards the spirited, and at times clueless, Ms. Woodhouse.

The healthier choice!

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
