Once in ones's life something has such an effect on you it changes your life, a thrill, an amazement, and forever more you are caught in its web of bewitchment....this happened to myself and my girl friend Shirley, when we first set eyes on a vision in time warped pink , weary and time worn..but standing proudly...
"It was an odd surprise to find one of the back upstairs rooms all newly decorated out in a pale lemon shade, with a few pieces of period furniture and knick nacs of china above the ornate kauri fireplace.....tired lacy curtains hung limply at the windows with dust motes lazily floating in a long slanting finger of afternoon sunlight. It was all finished and looking quietly beautiful, it gave one some idea of what the Hotel had looked like in its heyday"
One hopes to published my story sometime in the near future...
