Thursday creeped up on me. Laura HIle is back in the hospital but will be coming home sometime today, and Robin Hile’s daughter, Mandy, is heading home to Japan and caught in the “Glitches” maelstrom that has hit airports worldwide. Say a prayer or two for them all.
Anyhow, I don’t know if this is Lyme or not. Odds are, not. But it reminds us that summer is here and that unique experiences are part of the plan.
I wonder how Persuasion would have been different had Wentworth appeared in summer and then the group had packed off to visit Lyme in the midst of the festivities of the season. A little sea-bathing, the noise of dances and tourists might have changed everything. Might have.
Anyway, enjoy your summer and the seasonal joys it brings.
