Anita says.....

June 1, 2019

Civilisation has always depended on
Selective memory
So, when does the road become a river
Or bone become marrow
When demons crawl beneath the surface
And wait.. wait to burst forth
The soft earth mellows heat
And the dandelion rises through the crevice
- Dialogue from the British TV series SHERLOCK
