An Age of Unwilling Transition

'I’ve tried the world-it wears no more,

The colouring of romance it wore,'

sighed Anne - and was straightaway much comforted by the romance in the idea of the world being denuded of romance!


The thing about turning 21 is that we don't harbour any illusions but still chase after them.

Romance is what you think and feel,
Not what you hear and see;
Make your own meandering path through Ozland, Brazil, et al;
For as the greatest romantic said, the road goes ever on!
And when you find the 'lusions shift,
Seek solace in this;
Without a rainbow to ever follow,
There is neither despair nor bliss.
