I am reading an annoying little novel called ‘To The Lighthouse’.
I am on page 138 and they still haven’t got there — though they talk about it a lot: whether they will or they won’t and on what day they should venture forth? It is always the weather.
Hamlet, if he were written a few hundred years later, would have loved it. He was a ditherer too. There’s even a skull he could have addressed as ‘Alas. Poor Yorick’ though sadly it belonged to a sheep.
I’m getting tired of these people. They need a cattle prod applied to a certain part of their anatomy — though it may be it is not the book for me. I didn’t much like ‘Hamlet’ either.

I suspect it may not be the best novel for a poet/flash fiction writer, John …
LOL, I’ll pay that one, Carolyn 🙂 Have you read it or any of Virginia Woolf? I probably won’t read any more of hers 🙂
