ANNIHILATION!

This morning’s skylines. Area X’s Crawler now working nearer the pier. Jeff VanderMeer just won the Nebula Award for ‘Annihilation’. Hooray!

My fishtail groyne (the one opposite where I live) is growing apace. Two more of this morning’s skylines. The other pic is close to the groyne where its rocks were earlier delivered from Norway.

Following my earlier success with jolly seasidery, here is some more from this morning’s photos.

From Robert Aickman’s SOME NOTES ON DELIUS article, unpublished until May 2015:
“As there is no intrinsic virtue in denigration, the critic who resorts to it, should be required to pass a test of qualification and sensitivity, at least twice as stringent as that imposed upon a critic who loves. Normally, love is not blind but clairvoyant.” – Robert Aickman

Casting the Rocks

image image

I lay awake at 4 a.m listening to the echoing clangs and thumps of the coastal work that is tidal-sensitive to time. You kip, I kippeth not.
This morning, I find the cafe is still open directly in front of the piled Norwegian rocks that are ready for making into the new Fishtail Groynes:

Although I shall miss the old rocks and groynes along this coast (preserved photographically on this my website), I have been convinced that it is work needed doing.
Thanks to some Julian Karswell who once set about casting the runes, if not the rocks.
