an englishman’s walk

Crazy people, it’s sidewards rain and you walk head on to meet it. You’re all hunched inside yourself in your black waterproof windbreakers, but the wind is breaking though to you. It’s winter you say, and as good a day as any for a walk. You’re stepping on cliff edged public footpaths and mud soaked paddocks, the sea is a just beyond. Onwards you go, a glance at the lighthouse, then more rain for you.
