a week of first paragraphs returns: thursday

even in high summer, tintagel was a haunted place; igraine, lady of duke gorlois, looked out over the sea from the headland. as she stared into the fogs and mists, she wondered how she would ever know when the night and day were of equal length, so that she could keep the feast of the new year. this year the spring storms had been unusually violent; night and day the crash of the sea had resounded over the castle until no man or woman within could sleep, and even the hounds whimpered mournfully.
