No one else was around, and the tap was well hidden, so a passerby would not know of it. Thinking back there were other odd happenings in the house and I now suspect it had a spirit within. Maybe I'll use that idea in a book one day!(less)

“...at least that would explain the weeping and moaning emanating from the woman’s bedroom at night. It woke her regularly and created an illusion which suggested disembodied spirits roamed the corridors. And if there was one thing Melba would not have it was disembodied spirits roaming the corridors...”

The More Loving One

Looking up at the stars, I know quite well
That, for all they care, I can go to hell,
But on earth indifference is the least
We have to dread from man or beast.

How should we like it were stars to burn
With a passion for us we could not return?
If equal affection cannot be,
Let the more loving one be me.

Admirer as I think I am
Of stars that do not give a damn,
I cannot, now I see them, say
I missed one terribly all day.

Were all stars to disappear or die,
I should learn to look at an empty sky
And feel its total dark sublime,
Though this might take me a little time.”
W.H. Auden, Collected Shorter Poems, 1927-1957

“Strong belief in the bright future, always hiding fear of the past”.”
Alexandar Tomov
