Mary Michell, A Conker and Good Thoughts

On 19th September, our American friends and we were treated to an historical tour of St Day. Part of our walk was to the old Church of St Day and even inside as our historian friend from the village had acquired the key! Inside the Church was a statue that I found very moving. I loved the delicacy of and the expression on her face, the care with which the folds of her dress and waves of her hair were recreated in stone and I looked at her for some time before reading the engraving beneath and discovering that she had died at only eighteen.

I loved this statue to commemorate Mary inside the old Church in St Day

Today Lesley has shared with me the research she has just completed into Mary’s short life. As she said, have your tissues ready. Click on the red link to read the story, ┬áMonument to a lost bride

Remembering Mary

I had a lovely time singing with friends this afternoon. As I parked and began to walk down the lane, a conker fell on my head!

This came my way the other day and I liked it.
