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.
August

Is crime a big problem in your country?

Here, there is quite a lot of crime, but I know it is nothing compared to some other places - even in this country.

I can walk down the street alone at night and feel quite safe, and I can leave my door unlocked and not expect to get broken into.

What about you? What kind of precautions do you have to take against crime in your country?

    Where do you live in the UK that you leave your door open (on the other hand, don't say!) I didn't think anywhere in the UK was that safe any more.

    Even Nepal, where there's very little crime, people take care. I was bemused by my friend who takes his kukari knife to the bedroom with him at night, even though it is in a very safe and remote village, miles from anywhere.
