Thought of the day

Show me someone who is speaking in a monotone and I will show you someone who is using language, rather than intonation, to convey meaning.


Clea, Justine,
Mountolive and Balthasar
Antigua, penny, puce
The chair she sat on
The fields of praise
A jug of wine and thou
A dawn chorus under the fig-tree
History of the world out to lunch
The Fauves

Old man in a dry month waiting for rain
