The Tortoise and the Hare (Rabbit)
Home is emotional fulfillment
I drew ever closer to Clio, but I was ill and in trouble. Poor health and distraction had joined together to put me in a potentially serious situation. No money for food or drink. Barely enough strength to stagger into town. I waited to play a terrace for a basic survival fund, but buskers swarmed. Ken came to the rescue once more with an extremely noble gesture. Restored a little with a decent meal I braved the Munster, delivering an emotional set. Clio came and offered an overnight refuge from the chill of the camping. The hare was in a bad way. The tortoise plods on.
