Stonehenge and a Bona Fide Fascinator

Recent Entries · Archive · Friends · Profile

My first visit to Stonehenge is another thing I'll have to mull on before I can write about it, since it has the power of five thousand years and the mystery of the ages behind it. Meanwhile here's me scarfing a bona fide Cornish pasty and sporting the gorgeous fascinator given to me so generously by Orange Prize judge Tracy Chevalier, to replace the modified lace knickers version I wore earlier. Thank you, Tracy, for making a proper lady of me.

Before I read your post, I thought your A-line flapper bob grew a Dennis the Menace rooster tail.

Your response very much reminds me of my first trip to Stonehenge back circa 1972. I was only 21 and returning to the UK for the first time in many years.

In those days the stones were not fenced off and so our group could wander among the stones (as you can at Avebury). I was so deeply moved by this and other experiences that I began to feel that I must return to live here (my parents emigrated to Canada when I was 5).
