Not sure why quite so much time has passed since I last posted.
True, the end of the university term was busy and there was a lot to do on the allotment. There was getting things sorted before going on holiday. Also before an eye op about 10 days ago - the counterpart to the one I had last summer.
But there was time to do other things, including posting. And I intended to, just didn't get round to it.
Not sure what the problem was.
Though the last couple of months have been ones of change and rethinking. Perhaps that was it.
Am I transformed? No but definitely different, I think. Looking at the world afresh.
Literally in the case of the eyes. Casts of light seen for the first time in ages that take me straight back to an experience long ago and its associated feelings.
Thanks to M.C., my surgeon.
The picture, above? The bough of an oak, fallen but still close up against the tree, in a hedge by a cornfield several weeks ago. I was walking our dog along Hayway Lane when we heard it go. I wondered if I'd see the fallen branch later, and I did.
