|back home less than 24 hours and Normandy is beginning to fade; I wanted to add a memory of a particular smell during one of our evening walks: we had walked along this path before, sometimes coming from a different direction and the evening before the photo was taken the grass had been mown and that has a very distinct smell and I love that scent as well, but the smell I want to recall is the smell of the day after the grass has been mown and the sun has been shining all day and there is a heat in the earth and in the mown grasses and when you happen to walk through such a space in the evening as things cool ever so slightly, there is a certain fragrance: of the grasses mown the day before, releasing the sun's heat, there was a sweetness and a warmth, a heaviness in your nose, I hadn't ever noticed this before, not consciously anyway, and I wanted to remember that here, so I can go back in my mind and savour that moment. |
lingered in all the places you
showed me....imagining the 4 of
and loved that last of the
cathedral tent, but all of them.
and these marks above...are they
exactly pretty much as we see them
here? if so, i think they are
a magnificant success...
and yes Grace, the pics are very true to life; I personally love the walking Sun, he's quite a character already
ladies I bid you both good night; I have to go to the office, starting late tomorrow (10 instead of 8 o'clock) so that is nice for me; will have a primitive wash now as the shower hasn't been fixed completely in our absence - the door has been removed and a new one will be delivered tomorrow if all goes according to plan, ah well this is the life we lead and it is a good one x
