It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.
I have a feeling that our times are equal interesting as Dicken’s time in his book ‘A Tale Of Two Cities’. The plot was centering on the years leading up to the French Revolution and culminates in the Jacobin Reign of Terror. Oh well, I cannot predict the future not even what is going to happen in the near future, the only I know is that we deserve a break from the bombardment of the bad news and the everyday anxiety of what’s next. For that reason I’m posting some photos from the Lucknam Park, a country house near Bath which I visited recently. It is a lovely and serene place and transmits this calmness even through the pictures. Enjoy your weekend!
