‘The sea is high again to­day, with a thrilling flush of wind. In the midst of win­ter you can feel in­ven­tions of spring. A sky of hot nude pearl un­til mid­day, crick­ets in shel­tered places, and now the wind un­pack­ing the great planes, ran­sack­ing the great planes ... I have es­caped to this is­land with a few books and the child — Melissa’s child. I do not know why I use the word “es­cape”. The vil­lagers say jok­ingly that only a sick man would choose such a re­mote place to re­build. Well, then, I have come here to heal my­self, if you like to put in that way.’
