Grumpy old fart!!!

"If you talk to God you're religious. If God talks to you, you're psychotic."

The girl with the violin

I saw this card after reading Ian McEwan, On Chesil Beach and was reminded of the final page;

“When he thought of her, it rather amazed him, that he had let that girl with her violin go.

Now, of course, he saw that her self-effacing proposal was quite irrelevant.

All she had needed was the certainty of his love, and his reassurance that there was no hurry when a lifetime lay ahead of them.

Love and patience- if only he had had them both at once- would surely have seen them both through.”
