Wuthering Heights

I've started the New Year with a thorough appraisal of
past activities.

It seems that one's past will always return,
possibly not as a haunting experience,
but certainly fully documented by new technology
and its eerie advances.

A booklet I wrote while teaching is now listed
on the Net.
Nobody seems to have seen sight nor light of a copy
in years, but I have found memories of shaking my husband awake
at 1 a.m. to read passages of my insights aloud.
Probably he was not listening, but it helped.

Here's a New Year toast to a writer whose love of nature
has kept me in good spirits for years.

I hope my granddaughter agrees with your (and my) assessment -- Wuthering Heights was one of the books I included in her Christmas package. Part of my effort to expand her horizons beyond vampireteen trash!

It's an odd thing, the web. Me, I'm trying to figure out how to make things go away in a reasonable fashion, as I'm certain that there are things that everybody would rather never see again, yet which resurface in odd places.

Neat, though, that you wrote a book. I wonder who added it to GoodReads.

Thanks for taking time to comment.

Amazon.fr assures me that I am an "auteur".
I feel I should stand up and take a bow.

Funnily enough, your reference to vampireteen, Granny J,reminds me that the Victorians thought very little of "Wuthering Heights" and found it unsuitable for polite society.

I must think further on this...
