I think the good man has some strange ideas, but he does write beautifully! But it could be that I am totally biased. He has the same first name of one of my grandfathers, and I loved both of my grandfathers although they were a bit like night and day. One was very quiet and calm, the other was pensive and reflective, but quiet, or calm will never really describe him. Very much to my mother’s chagrin I have a lot of the latter’ character traits. Come to think of it, it would do me good to adopt a few more!
