Opis: A Grey Life - Rita Rita

Excerpt from A Grey Life: A Romance of Modern Bath

It was all grey.

The atmosphere, the sky, the houses. A grey, sombre town, surrounded by encircling hills. The very street held only grey, gloomy buildings, or so they looked to my young eyes, used hitherto to the lovely green of Ireland. Winter-time and cold, and all my impressions only of grey and gloom. Those first impressions of childhood, which seem to etch a picture in the brain as an acid works upon a sensitive plate.

At night, when after a weary and horrible journey I had arrived at my destination, I was too tired and shy and frightened to talk much, or observe much. But the next morning

For its record I look back to the scrawled and blotted copybook that represents my first diary. This is what I read.

"December 10th, 18 - .

"Came to Bath, to live with my Aunt Theresa. It is a big stone house in a grey street. Opposite to it are more grey stone houses, very tall, and ugly. The sky is grey also. I do not think I shall be happy here. I wish I was back in Ireland."

That wish was with me all through that first dreary week in which I was trying to accustom myself to new surroundings and new friends. I was very young, only twelve years of age. I had lost both my parents.
