In My Mind's Eye

Worsening weather forecast for the weekend made it essential to leave the fort today and I was collected by the Lady Irene at 6pm, two days earlier than planned. I am truly grubby. The flies that had taken to hovering about my head will really miss me.

I have been crawling about on hands and knees in the dirtiest parts of the Fort and I'm looking forward to a bath in fresh hot water; with a real sense of gratefulness that I live in a country were I can just turn on a tap. Everything is strange; cars, electric light, conversation, studio and home. In my mind's eye the fort is clear and steady. I feel many different emotions, but right now a great sense of loss.

If you would like to share a conversation with me about the experience, please go back to the web site and check for details of the online discussion forum.
