Small Stones July 14-17

July 14

Birthday cards from old friends and Facebook messages remind me of long friendships and good times in different places. I take a moment to remember a special memory of my time with each and be grateful for their friendship.

The promise of heavy weekend rain brings out the evening gardeners in a rare synchronised display of activity; a snatched half hour of motorised action on front lawns before the street falls silent once more and the orange machines are returned to their garages and sheds.

There is a knock at the front door. I stir as if it was part of my dream. The phone rings from a distant part of the house but it has stopped by the time I get there to be replaced by my mobile ringtone. Outside sits a telephone engineer three days early for our appointment. Welcome to the weekend.

Like a child playing a cruel trick on a sibling, the sky is misbehaving. Sunshine tempts people out of their houses whilst black clouds release sudden showers sending them scurrying back inside.
