Stream, Raindrops and Gravestone

1   We love the stream at Gwennap; it is a very special place for all the family and we were there today with Daughter No 1 and Daughter no 3.

3   We had a walk around the churchyard where the stone that inspired my Dad to write his first novel, “Jeremy Visick” can be found.   I found the wording on another stone, to Johanna Gray, very interesting:

She was an affectionate wife
and a tender mother
and a pattern of kindness
to her neighbours and friends.

A ‘pattern of kindness’ must be that she set an example and was kind to all. I like that. One of the definitions of pattern is ‘ A person or thing considered worthy of imitation.’
