My friend, the artist Lynda Powney wrote to me saying "I thought it was complicated. I had an argument with myself about the size of the turbines and then concluded that it was best done as it was." She is right so I wrote back saying "The scale of the wind turbines is something I too puzzled over during the whole process. Not before though - I just jump straight in (if I think too much I just confuse myself), and, like you I think, decided that a certain ambiguity was what was needed to help the notion of something possibly being slightly out of place or at least sitting uneasily in the countryside. I have tried to develop this in more recent attempts." See also ''Beyond the turbines blooming'.
