They are irresistible aren’t they? Since I was so small I cannot remember how old I was they have fascinated me. Running along railings dragging a stick along them. Telegraph poles throbbing past the train window. Lines of onions in the fields. Wire netting around the chickens. Swallows on the telephone wires waiting to fly south. Plantations of birch trees. The list is endless and unsatisfied I go and search them wherever I find myself. It’s a bit worrying isn’t it? I should seek professional help, like my wife for example , but she says I could not afford her.
