Dear Wen XXIII

valerian 106Dear Wen…

That doesn’t surprise me… No will power.

It’s all to do with your earthly descent I expect…

We still need to visit the Anglo Saxon church at Northampton…

Do we know which of the Nine Mary’s and what the window is depicting?
It is a spooky feeling to realise the worthy ‘Devil Conjuror’ himself doubtless gazed upon the same window.

An interesting tale and one that should fit with some of our themes in the latest offering which is no doubt why we were sent there… There was an Old Woman…

I wish we’d looked at the well now…my fault really, had the thought but ignored it…still it’s not like its a million miles away… and it looks like you can drink from it… Much prefer the new set up…a veritable Little House of the Living…

The Dunstan devil looks like Gollum… and the figure as a whole is reminiscent of the St Michael and Devil from Coventry Cathedral.

What’s the difference between striking the earth with a staff and attacking the devil with smithy’s tongs?

‘Pulled by the nose’ is interesting too as is a ‘roaring’ heard three miles away… Smiths and Devils it seems go hand in hand…

Is the White-leaf Cross on the hill of our raven’s and kite from the first book I wonder…

kites 434It looks like the same place but I can’t make out the barrow, or the navel… must be an excuse for a quotation if it is…It seems we are being inexorably led back to a number of our initial themes…

Ah, the red, red gloom of the Black Stench.waddesdon 080

He’ll soon perk up if you let him finish off the cheese…
