Holydays Yes, OK, I’m thinking of holidays. At the very time when life seems to be at its busiest and most complicated, I have to take two weeks off. I could do without that, right now. But it’s booked and paid for, and life with June wouldn’t be worth living if we didn’t go. I […]

The July heat reminds Ronald Blythe of family visits in the past “SHALL I compare thee to a summer’s day?” asked Shakespeare. Impossible. An English summer’s day is unlike anything else in the world.

Ronald Blythe on a poet of Cornwall TODAY, I found myself thinking of my old friend Charles Causley. He’d be looking around my ancient house and saying, But you can’t live here! But I do live here, Charles. With all this garden? Charles detested gardening. When we met in Cornwall, he would take me to see […]
