Orlando had become a woman — there is no denying it. But in every other respect, Orlando remained precisely as he had been. The change of sex, though it altered their future, did nothing whatever to alter their identity.
– Orlando, Virginia Woolf

“We are into the Spring trajectory now, the straight. I see the seasons in a sort of circle, or an oblong really (more rectangular) with winter coming down from the top right and spring easing along the bottom straight before up into summer. My cycle begins in Autumn : set by the English school calendar (September-July), perhaps, but also from birth: from late October, my years.”
I would like to celebrate, in future, the equinox. (Much in the way of Cassie, of ‘I Capture the Castle’.)
