Memento Mori

Coffee and Brioche

The peace and quiet of early morning is for summer, but the peace and quiet of 11.00 in the morning is a winter moment.The slate grey sky offers wonderful light for photography. The wood burner is crackling as the fire tries to ignite the big logs. There is a complete silence in the hamlet this morning, even the cattle appear to be in post party mood. The only sign of life has been one of imminent death. Two hunters, shotguns slung, are silently passing the window on their way down the lane with an assortment of remarkably quiet hounds – Basset’s Assorted.
