Growin’ In The Wind

So will I build my altar in the fields,
And the blue sky my fretted dome shall be,
And the sweet fragrance that the wild flower yields
Shall be the incense I will yield to thee.

To Nature by Samuel Taylor Coleridge

    Thanks for a glimpse of summer gorgeousness for us in the wettest grey winter. Samuel Taylor Coleridge used to live and wander the hills and shore just to the North of us. There is a statue of the ancient mariner at the wharf side at Watchet. His name rolls nicely off the tongue, and helped us confirm our choice of Christine’s maiden name as our son’s middle name. Hence Robert Taylor Williams. He uses Taylor as his name now – Robbie Williams became a bit naff as a name when he was about 18.

      It really has been a case of “water, water, everywhere” for you guys this winter. Not that we haven’t had our fair share of rain here in the Midlands, though elsewhere in the country there has been drought. Lucky for your son that Christine had a cool maiden name to pass on. I’ve heard some weird family names that have been inherited by poor, unsuspecting children!
