Shadows Larger Than Themselves
Events trail shadows larger than themselves. Much that people afterwards said about those days came from springs of imagination almost free from the pollution of fact.

Photograph taken last year in Bruntcliffe Cemetery, Morley. My secondary school was right next to the cemetery (“that explains a lot” says a voice and, as usual, I don’t listen to it) and we would walk through here on an almost daily basis on lunchtime sojourns into the town centre to check out the girls from Morley High School. That was over thirty years ago now, but it seems more real to me now than whatever nonsense I was caught up in last week.
