The dark is rising-day 6 Street names

In TDIR Will is protected from the witch Maggie as he walks on one of the old one’s paths. He is reminded to be aware of the names of streets. Cooper ties in protection with what has been there a long time bringing another aspect of landscape to the story. The older landscape being associated with the light. Since reading I’ve been keeping an eye on my local street names. It’s not looking hopeful for me. No street names that suggest old ways for protection. There all a bit too modern. At least if you take 200 years or so to be modern.

Alice has been excited for jumping in puddles on our town exploring, now proffering her wellies to other forms of footwear.

I’ve had a lovely Christmas day, but that will form the subject of another blog. Hope everyone else had super days.
