"Ponderynge together yestardayes promise, and two-dayes doyng"
(Hall's Chronicle - 1548)

"Goronigl gwyr yr Ynys" (Lewis Glyn Cothi - 1450)


After days of bright, clear air the pressure drops and the cold abates. Then the mist, missed, fills in: tiny water droplets hanging along the edge of the ridge. I watched them drift up the valley from the sea, dispersing into nooks, crannies, folds in the earth along the bottom then up the slopes turning the view grey as a heron, as slow as a heron's wing beat.
