Street lamps, lost and found, interrupting

The street lamps in the Grove are to be treasured. They are of the traditional lantern shape, and, though now, electrically powered, are almost certainly converted from former gas lamps. The give a whitish, yellowy light in contrast to the orange now so widely used to illuminate the highway. Because they have been there for a long time they sometimes lean to one side so that they can have a charming drunken appearance. Long may they shine.

Finding my notebook which I thought for a moment I had lost.

Another quote from The Meaning of Ting. The Indonosian Nyelongon means to interrupt without appology. A very useful word.
