Too many movies! -I had just drifted through all of "Gone With The Wind".
The smooth surface of the shell was warm from sitting. I reached down for my
robe, the wind was coming up and I wished to stand for a while. The little terrier
began to bark, I looked back and saw a window opening in the shell behind me.
As I watched Micheal's damp, black head was just visible inside. So young
and vulnerable ! He seemed sleepy and unfocused. I would wait to call to him
until he began to look outside. For now I could see we were just coming
up on an expanse of very bright grass and trees ahead- were we headed
into the land of Oz ?
