Welcome to Churchill’s Corner
The Old Broad Speaks (below)
This little corner of the universe is inhabited
by a fellow of unflinching goodwill and mischief, named Emerson
Frost Churchill (or, as it says on his mailbox, E.M. Churchill).
The world is a strange and wonderful place, filled with light
and magic and awe, music and quiet, song and singer, all rolled
into a living symphony, with the stars as caretakers. Churchill
is a singer of songs, a teller of tales, a subject of stories
and an adventurer in search of adventure. He also knows the value
of a good long quiet.
Here you will find stories about Churchill and
by Churchill. You will find adventures, musings, ruminations,
and an occasional guided tour through a favorite garden or two.
You might even find a tip on planting something special, or some
architectural information about the Boxwood hedge that is Churchill’s
There is no real plan
here, no path, only starlight and powder blue dust.
Old Broad in the big house will have a word or two of her own
to add in due course.
If you find a story that pleases you we invite
you to download it to read to your children at bedtime, or around
a campfire. If, however, a rascal out there decides to gather
up the stories, storylines, and/or any of the artwork, and publish
it in any form whatsoever, either in print or on the web, we promise
to send the badger after him for copyright infringement and, after
the badger is finished with him, to feed what is left of him to
the 3 lb. wild brown trout who live in the stream below Churchill’s
house, and who occasionally get tired of mayflies for dinner.
Always remember that every time you use your
imagination you have had a dancing lesson with the universe.
