We hear things retrospectively when we have understood them - Marcel Proust
"And how the silence surged softly backward" What a wonderful line. I used to know this poem by heart, but haven't heard it for years. And is that Vaughan Williams, "The Lark Ascending" in the background? Thank you
Andy - I'm pleased you liked it. I used to know it by heart too and yes, the music is "The Lark Ascending".
He's superb, isn't he? My personal favourite is "The Wharf". Both spooky and uplifting, which is doubly difficult.
With you there. Wonderful.
Sam - I shall be reading "The Wharf" soon.James - it is wonderful. I sometimes stop reading and just let it float through my mind.
