Visible to anyone in the world

Toward home I paused.

Smelling lilac.

Everyone has a last summer.

Me in a rare cheerful mood

Year before last I listened to John Mortimer's The Summer of a Dormouse on Radio 7.

I found it fascinating, gently shocking and impossible to turn off.  By the end I was stone cold from the fear of the passage of time and its inevitable but denied consequence.

Your last line hit me the same way, but far faster.

I have been frightened of wasting time for the past two years - so why do I do it so much?
