19:46 Pond 2, sitting again... to note more of this strange state. My hearing is augmented, tinnitus is again noticeable... and everything looks more vivid, every detail, 4 swans, 2 men in the distance, so many trees...
(walking, walking.... And sitting to read)
21:12 Meadow. Thistles in long grass, the surrounding trees, a blue cloud on the horizon, simple people, slight wind, everything seems twice as alive as usual, the ground is dry, the time is 21:15, I've just finished reading the story of WH Davies's wife, I overhear a fragment of lively conversation... the words give out... this is a strange moment but so are many... or any...
The 2 geese with 4 goslings have reappeared ... in pond 1 ... and the goslings are twice or thrice the size they were when I saw them flee to pond 3 some weeks ago - where have they been?
15 coots all standing in shallow water (ready for the night?), 2 are sitting on the sandy beach. The water is still.
