Thoughts of Peace in An Air Raid

By the "land girl," Evelyn Dunbar.

"The Germans were over this house last night and the night before that. Here they are again. It is a queer experience, lying in the dark and listening to the zoom of a hornet which may at any moment sting you to death. It is a sound that interrupts cool and consecutive thinking about peace."
-Virginia Woolf

Your work is bliss.

I promise to get to answering your heavenly (thank you so much, I am/was beyond honored that you included me; I felt a little bashful about it, honestly...but such delight!) nomination.

Hoping you have a magnificent weekend. Sending you all the best, truly--vt
