From the Rector
Tell me, have you started to change? Are you growing extra skin?
Is there wedding between your toes? Or is it just a very wet week?
These are some of the questions my father would ask when we had had a lot of rain and I was getting restless being stuck inside the house. I spent many hours watching the rain drops run down the windows, bumping into each other until flowing down to pool with all the other droplets that gathered in the dimples of the uneven surface of the outside windowsill.
Tom was an American who, for many years worked for IBM in Bracknell and lived in one of the houses at the bottom of our crescent. At a bar-b-que that we held for the residents in the top field behind the houses, we got talking about the differences between our two similar but very different peoples. At one point he said “I didn’t get why you Brits went on about the weather so much, I thought it was just your way of being polite and avoiding any awkward silences. But it’s not that, you actually do have a lot of different kinds of weather and you can have it all in one day!”
Paul Gauguin, who spent several months visiting friends in England, was reported to have said that England had more shades of grey that any other country he had visited.
What am I trying to say? Have you had enough of the RAIN?
