What are days for? Days are where we live. They come, they wake us Time and time over. They are to be happy in: Where can we live but days? Ah, solving that question Brings the priest and the doctor In their long coats Running over the fields. Philip Larkin
Commitments, illness and a general feeling of ennui have left this blog gathering dust since long before Christmas. My camera sulks in a bottom drawer, poetry is paucity, and another bout of lockdown has me hibernating. But Larkin is spot on: ‘where can we live but days‘? And the sun summoned my cabin-fevered body forth for a local walkabout – seeing beauty even in the least of picturesque landscapes of puddled muddy fields under a bright sky.
