The Ancients stayed close to Nature, thought with her, and without extraordinary contrivances, they played with matter.

Instead of going to work this afternoon I watched this excellent version of Dicken's Great Expectations. A classic from the vividly rendered spooky opening sequence in a cemetary on the marsh to its syrupy closing scene. Loved it. I laughed out loud many times, and curiously found snippets of the novel, which I read when I was 16, coming back.
