To Maureen

Inceptis gravibus plerumque et magna professis,

Purpureus, late qui splendeat, unus et alter

Adsuitur pannus.

With Love

Christmas 1995

[NB. Translation: ‘Oftentimes to lofty beginnings and to such as promise great things, one or two purple patches are stitched on in order to make a brilliant display’ (Horace).]
