It would help a bit if it weren’t really autumnal weather. The showers are intense and frequent. Whenever I get ready to go for a walk, it starts raining. Most frustrating. So yesterday, I wrote about struggles that I am having. I was thinking this evening that perhaps I could start a project of some kind. Now, that would be good if I were in Dorset, I have quite a few thoughts about what I want to do.
I have been saying for quite a while that I wanted to read about the history of Hampshire, I am doing so and it is interesting, but bI’m not really being gripped with locations at thte moment. For example, yet another book was added to my Dorset collection on Monday; Prehistoric Dorset by John Gale. Now it will go on my reading list, but it is definitely a reference book. But, having had a brief look through it I am vewry keen to visit as many of the sites mentioned in the book as I can.
The impression that I get is that certainly in Neolithic times Hampshire was nowhere near as active as Dorset – I wonder if that is partly because the area that we think of as Hampshire is almost completely forested. There’s something lacking here that I can’t get a grip of. I’ll keep trying.
