On this breezy October morn, I walk
in the swift shadows of cloud-cursing rooks,
watching the world wake on the horizon.
Leo Yankevich
All houses wherein men have lived and died
Are haunted houses. Through the open doors
The harmless phantoms on their errands glide,
With feet that make no sound upon the floors.

We meet them at the doorway, on the stair,
Along the passages they come and go,
Impalpable impressions on the air,
A sense of something moving to and fro.

New word - Coffice

A coffice is a cafe that is being used for office work.

Seemingly more and more of us are doing our work in cafes - coffice work I guess.

    Once I got a coffice correction of my paper in German. I wouldn't say it was a great job. A German lady substituted das Dialog for der Dialog, und dergleichen mehr. Heat was insupportable and you could hear deafening music around. :):):)
    My essay was decidedly worse than before.

    Der Dialog is of course right, but you could have written it in Swiss`s dialect, because they say to the Tram das Tram hehe, at least around Basel.

    Well, I don't think a proofreader would accept it. :):):)

    Is coffice in the Oxford English Dictionary yet? If not, I'm very sure it soon will be.
