Burnt Norton 2

Damn. I fell asleep really early, and now I've woken up. I was so thirsty I had to get up and now I'm wide awake. Not really 'wide awake' actually, sort of peculiar feeling, which I suppose you know what I mean at 3am.

The reason I am posting about Burnt Norton is that I've got it nagging at me and I have to write it out, to clear it out of my head somehow.

(I'm not going to keep saying 'it seems to me' and 'I think that', but take it for granted that anything I might say about the poem is just my opinion.)

Red Mars

Some great pictures from Mars here. A good accompaniment to re-reading Red Mars. I think this is the best one. It's not the most exotic but it feels as if you are there, as the sun goes down.
