Wages are credited to my empty account.
I turn off the engine in the dairy farm yard and sit quietly watching the resident swallows flying around only six inches above the concrete.

... is a bit of fifties architecture that needs to be knocked down because the fabric is so grievously dilapidated, but it is to be conserved as an example of design from that period

its a nice idea BUT ...
whilst the work proceeds they will need temporary classrooms and so they will stack them up right outside our kitchen window
and we shall lose our distant prospect towards the low slopes of the chiltern incline, beyond the edges of london
they say the buildings will be temporary ... three years only ... because the space they occupy must be made available for a play area
hmmm ! wasn't hadrian's wall temporary ?

I am neither liberal, nor conservative, nor gradualist, nor monk, nor indifferentist. I would like to be a free artist and nothing else…. Pharisaism, dullwittedness, and tyranny reign not only in merchants’ homes and police stations. I see them in science, in literature, among the younger generation. That is why I cultivate no particular predilection for policemen, butchers, scientists, writers or the younger generation. I look upon tags and labels as prejudices. My holy of holies is the human body, health, intelligence, talent, inspiration, love and…freedom from violence and lies, no matter what form the latter two take.
