We are in our fifties and are still referred to as ‘the young couple’ by our neighbours. It sometimes feels as if they forget when they grow older, we grow older too. The moon harvests a few more souls each August and as I walk these streets in silence I remember the banter over garden gates, the smiles waving me in for a cup of tea and stories about how life used to be.
