Clouds are gathering
When I first saw images from space from the Apollo missions, I was fascinated by the beauty of the Earth’s surface. I had assumed that it would look like a terrestrial globe, the sort of thing you find in posh antique shops and which I remember from the classrooms of my schooldays – but the living, breathing sphere of swirling cloud suspended in infinate blackness was breathtaking.
I see clouds as things of beauty and life, but often they are used as portents of doom and destruction. Like Kali, they are both. Recently I have been thinking a lot about clouds.
The grey clouds now gathering as harbingers of a financial storm will wreak havoc with savings and pensions as the true meaning of quantitive easing hits home – the dark ominous storm-clouds being blown around the planet towards strenghtening giants by winds of imperialism are making the air electric, the ennervating crackling only able to be eased by a great tempest as the pressure rises to be suddenly released in shock and awe.
Without clouds there is no rain and without rain there is no life. After a desert storm can come flowers, but too much rain will wash away the soil leaving a barren wasteland.
I started writing this as a jolly good reason to come to stay with us in Villa Roquette, our spiffing home in the golden heart of Languedoc, the real South of France. I am looking out of the window at fluffy clouds in a blue sky, the climate is mild and our village has only a few discrete decorations – some of our guests are here to be with their families for Christmas and calling it Christmas, not ‘the winter holiday’ – we are very lucky as we have not got any money to lose and no debts to worry about so the mahem created by the finacial beserkers is something I can only observe and await the inevitable outcome.
So opt-out of the bad weather, crazy politics and sad money-men, come to stay with us in Villa Roquette
Stay in our fully serviced and equipped studio apartment (from only 25 euro a night) – our King-Sized B&B suites from (only 45 euro a night for two including breakfaast) – or a fully equipped apartment catering from two to sixteen people (big enough and private enough for three generations together).
Golf, fishing, cycling, horse-riding all on your doorstep, near the Mediterranean and steeped in history, come for a day, or stay for a year – you will be made welcome and can see the clouds drift away.
