Winding the Clock

One of my favorite morning chores here at the cottage in Surrey is winding the clock.  It feels as if the day is not properly set in motion until I wind it up.  Very powerful feeling, that!


  1. Where is this beautiful clock located? Can you back up a bit more and give us a little more context? As for the sense of power you feel, it must be like the metaphorical "winding up" of a story, getting it started, giving it the energy it needs to play itself out.

  2. The clock is in the kitchen of a 17th century (?) cottage in Surrey, England. The clock seems to be a genuine old one, but knowing nothing of clocks, I cannot guess how old. I hope to find out more about the cottage and the village in the coming months.
