An old friend just used the word Morvil. It weirdly surfaced a memory of my old French teacher, Ms. Hake. She was the first woman I knew who used Ms. I suspect she disliked teaching immensely but she was a delightful person when I took her lunchtime Cornish classes. I heard rumours that she suffered depression and had regular breakdowns in the classroom. Not surprising considering the job of a secondary school teacher. Once when a dead whale was washed up on Gunwalloe beach we went for a look and were shocked to see people had been cutting into it. Amongst the obscenities and signs I saw the word Morvil. I was ashamed to be a part of the community that did that. I have often wondered what became of Ms. Hake. Sending out my gratitude and kind wishes to Ms. Hake if you're still in the world.
