A QUOTE FOR JACKIE
“It is only when our characters and events begin to disobey us that they begin to live.” John Fowles.
It was a cold, grey, October morning in Lyme Regis harbour,
but the dogs and I strolled along anyway.
They weren’t too sure about these wobbly steps
but we enjoyed the hazy view from the top
This is the famous Cob at Lyme Regis, as seen in the movie The French Lieutenant’s Woman, from the book by John Fowles. I’ve been up there in much worse weather and it isn’t for the faint hearted, I definitely wouldn’t want a long heavy cloak swirling around my ankles in the wind as Meryl Streep did!
Jackie at A Cooking Pot and Twisted Tales invited me to join in a share of three favourite quotes. This is one of the ones I had over my desk, to inspire me, when I was studying creative writing.
I’m not going to ask anyone to take part, just anyone who wants to!
