A Stroll On The Beach: The Sun Also Sets

“I grow old … I grow old … 
I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled.

Shall I part my hair behind? Do I dare to eat a peach?
I shall wear white flannel trousers, and walk upon the beach.
I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each.

I do not think that they will sing to me.”

From The Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock
T S Eliot 1888 – 1965

When in Kannur, the best remedy after over-indulging on breakfast,  is to take a walk along its beach.
