Adele Ellis, teacher of thirty years, is interested in writing and loves words and reading. In my work with children teaching reading and writing is my joy.
Auckland. Sunday morning. Mid-sixties.
I am in bed. Headachy. Bedspread turned down. Distant sounds of kitchen domesticity drift in and out. The music drones on. Leave me alone. I doze. Am I hearing this again? On the musical menu today Glenn Miller, big bands, heavy piano concertos. Is that Tchaikovsky or Grieg? Mozart where are you hiding?
