Quandary Resolution 4722
doubting Thomas, oubliette, milieu, decamp
(continued from April 15th) After living for a year in splendid self-imposed isolation, 'weeping Tom' re-entered his social milieu but, like a prisoner in an oubliette who sees daylight for the first time in twelve months, he could not believe the changes around him and he decamped back to his living quarters for another misanthropic year, now not only a weeping but also a doubting Thomas.
