Just Imagine…

       I was in Haworth, Yorkshire, the other day. It was cold, clear, crisp and quite beautiful. I walked through a churchyard, and then into a church that was lit by the springtime sun streaming through a stained glass window, that threw colours on the ground like puddles of joy.

Someone had left a bunch of flowers and a “Thank You” card on the plaque. I picked up the card and read it:


“Thank you for the joy you have given me, thank you for the books.”

That was it, 150 years after they had died, a thank you to a writer for the time they had taken to write.

Just imagine that?
