Gus’ remains came home today. I got a nice little urn and they fit nicely next to Calpurnia’s box. He spent a lot of time sleeping at the base of this book shelf in the last few weeks.
Over these last days I remembered something from the Two Towers movie. I always felt a connection to the men of Rohan as portrayed in the movie. I suppose it is the call of the AngloSaxon blood. These scenes strike an even stronger chord now.
It is an odd coincidence that the star jasmine is about to bloom out back. Soon it will look like this.
