Hergest Ridge


Approx 5.20pm

ASHTON STREET

 

‘Hergest Ridge (Side One)’ – Mike Oldfield


(WOW!)

 

H’flo!

 

Haze.  And creative numbness.  That’s what I’ve got at the moment.  Slack Sundays.  I go home at 10.30pm.

 

Sunday is all wet with rain.  No more the snow.  Away, Snow, Away!  Dinner in the company of Aliens. 



A pleasure from their pain.  And Make-Up returns.  Haze.  Creative numbness.  Sleazy Sunday.  Dead days with no real reason for the fight that is life.  Mike Oldfield on the stereo.  That’s nice.  That’s great.  And Make-Up, here.  And Flash, here.  And Ritcherd, here.  All present and correct with beauty dominating the air.  But Ashton Street will be departed from soon.  Soon.  The end of Now is coming.  And farewells shall come to all those present and correct…

 

Later:

9.45pm.

 

‘The Boy With The Gun’ – David Sylvian



 

A strange day. 

 

Preparing to go.  Empty.  Why?

 

Facing life is hard.  Back to Tech.  And fare thee well.

 

Hey-Ho!

 

A weekend, an end, and home…

 

Oh, that snow!

 

Tomorrow come anew.  Bring a love and a beauty with you.

 

Later:

 

NO MORE SNOW.
