The House of Nuts had a visit today, from Miss Tree and her family. I've known her for such a long time (because we are ancient - me being more ancienter, of course) and life has a way of crossing our paths on a regular basis, though distance tries its best to keep us apart. I am grateful for that, because Miss Tree is one of my favourite people.
Regular visitors to The Lighthouse will know that we are immensely happy here in Sohoe (our Slice of Heaven on Earth) and are infinitely glad to no longer live in the place we lived before. Not that it was a bad place, you understand - aside from the hot air of politicians blathering on while not accomplishing very much, it was a very nice place - just not for us.
One thing we miss very much about that Other Place is our dear friends. We had the pleasure of knowing wonderful and interesting people. We had the privilege of true friendship with some of them. We haven't yet forged bonds like that here, and while the vineyards, country lanes, orchards, and simplicity offer their fine compensations, at times the heart does yearn for human connection.
So, thank you, Miss Tree, Mr. Jeff, and the Little Man, for giving us the pleasure of your company today.
We'll be keeping an eye on the real estate market of Sohoe for you!
