Today we enjoyed splendid fare: high tea, with clotted cream all the way from Devon. A very nice poet friend of the SPL popped in, and since one wouldn’t really chow clotted cream unaccompanied, he brought some scones and jam too. There is apparently a Japanese proverb that declares ‘If man has no tea in him, he is incapable of understanding truth and beauty’. When 5 ladyfolk of the library have tea AND scones and clotted cream and jam, are they invincible?
