This month I’ve been...
1 Rejoicing in the return of some proper candle-power, as snow makes the most of a short day’s light.
2 Recalling, as I have ever since I read it in about 1994, Thomas Hardy’s description of a sun like this: ‘white, as though chidden of God’. I looked up the poem (Neutral Tones) and by golly if that isn’t a bleak read.
3 Somewhat guiltily, yet gleefully, performing this act of graffiti in the Dark Peak. Have you signed up? Do!
