The tail end of Hurricane Whoever- Bertha, apparently - that has come over from the States began to hit us this morning, causing a wild sea, and a numinous light. It was a lovely drive back from the Hall. I followed Captain Butterfly who came to give me a lift to my car as it was raining so hard!
I am finding it very hard for us both to be getting so old and heading into the death zone. How wrong it all is - that our lives are so short now. We have this immense brain - with more capacity for learning and storage than any machine we have invented. It was made to last forever, to go on learning forever.
And that is what I thought many years ago - how short a time we have to spend with the people we love. Thank goodness a rescue is close at hand. The rescue we pray for when we say the Lord's Prayer.
