Lewis can paint his car black, but mine is staying pretty red. Sumerian cuneiform, Egyptian cartouches, symbols, inscriptions representing words, figures, people, activities recorded not for the ear but for the eye.

Re: Coro

If I may prevail and tax your patience a little longer: Advent, Christmas, done. Betjeman wrote “the most momentous tale of all, seen in a stained glass window’s hue, and is it true, for if it is…. “ but then he was a rank sentimentalist.

Re: Coro

Well the bubbles have burst (except that is for the Government and its advisors.) Intriguing don’t you think? The Administration is drifting like the Mary Celeste but with less control. Jottings for the official and unofficial record, and personal diary. A prickly dressing down at No 10? it was mean...

Puritanism: The haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy. The journalist returned from his visit to the Hunt kennel maid with ears of straw in his hair and a glazed look in his eyes.
