  1. I love this. “All grown up she did” is so evocative. The header and the photo both offer delicious and absolute visual clarity. I always enjoy the way Gilly emerges so subtly from what you write. What a pleasure on a somewhat gloomy evening here.

    1. You are a darling Meg, thank you.
      I was actually in my forties before I saw a windmill, we don’t have them in my part of the country and you know how we romanticize things we’ve never seen! I hope you have some sunshine tomorrow xx

  2. I can connect with the desire in your haiku, Gilly. I remember dreaming of going to China when I was a little girl, and even trying to dig a hole through the earth using my dad’s post-hole digger! I didn’t get far before I hit the water table. 🙂 And I did finally make it to China, at nearly 60! Love that photo of the windmill. 🙂

I would love to hear from you . . .
