Stuck indoors today and outside it’s looking like this. What frustration – surrounded by scaffolding, noise, those who know little and have small regard for others – and trying to concentrate on a design that should solve problems but, moreover, give delight!

Just off loading!

The people along the sand
All turn and look one way.
They turn their back on the land.
They look at the sea all day.

As long as it takes to pass
A ship keeps raising its hull;
The wetter ground like glass
Reflects a standing gull.

The land may vary more;
But wherever the truth may be—
The water comes ashore,
And the people look at the sea.

They cannot look out far.
They cannot look in deep.
But when was that ever a bar
To any watch they keep?  Robert Frost  Neither Out Far Nor In Deep

    The sea looks rather chilly.
    Your previous post made me want to rush to the south of France immediately.

    I love the poem – straight forward, ironical and metaphorical I guess.
