The sea still thundering away . This morning it has upped its roar to low throttle jet engine. Boy, is it noisy. Sophie wanders down to the coast, glares at the seabirds and seals and wanders home. She seems oblivious to the noise. I get a text from a friend giving a think tank speech on Ukraine. He wants to know if his closing line is OTT. It's a John Quincy Adams quote 'I am a warrior so that my son may be a merchant, so that his son may be a poet '. Doesn't seem OTT at all to me ; just pertinently real.
