Stay with this image for a while. Hear the gentle lapping of the water at the sea’s edge. Feel it playing around your toes. Notice the glow of the late afternoon sun on the groynes – feel its warmth. Taste the salt on your lips. Sense the soothing rhythm of the calm, blue sea. Relax.
That was my holiday!
Whilst processing this stark, contrasty image my mind leapt back to my schooldays and I recalled Macbeth’s encounter with the witches on the’blasted heath’ (Act I Sc 3) . Hence the title of this post!
Is it an alligator? Oor a crocodile? Some form of reptile? In fact it’s an image derived from a bubble in my garden pond, complete with radiating ripples!
